This review is based strictly on my opinion. I was provided the sample free of charge by the company to provide my honest review. No other type of compensation was received. All ideas and opinions are my own. OK, don’t panic, but Thanksgiving is just a few days away! I realized I still had food shopping and decorating to do. We got most of the groceries we needed over the weekend. The only thing I needed to do was to decorate the table. What to do, what to do!? Make this gorgeous Easy Rustic Fall Or Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece with fall and Thanksgiving decor and craft supplies we purchased from Oriental Trading of course!
I just love Oriental Trading! Their products are top notch and the prices are affordable. If I know what my craft project is, a quick search will take me right to the supplies I need. If I need some DIY inspiration, I refer to their Fun365 website where I can find DIY and crafting projects for just about any occasion. Caitlin and I have made several DIY projects inspired by ideas from there, including the gorgeous DIY Floral Easter Egg Wreath. I cannot wait to show you what we are making for Christmas!
My oldest daughter is getting married soon. We are doing most of the decor ourselves. I was relieved to find Oriental Trading Company had an entire section dedicated to weddings. We got started with some Mason Jar fun in my post, 7 Ways To Plan A Magical Wedding On A Budget. All you need are a handful of supplies from Oriental Trading Company and a few hours! Before you know it, you will have a beautiful wreath for your door or centerpiece for your table.
To make my Easy Rustic Fall Or Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece, here is what you will need:
DIY Flower Box Centerpiece
Bag of Pine Cones
Moss Table Runner
Faux Eucalyptus Stems
Monogram Stencils or adhesive letters
Faux fall flowers, leaves, greenery
Gourds, pumpkins, and other fall decor
Moss or hay
Stain your DIY Flower Box Centerpiece
If you like to allow the wood grain to show through, wipe the stain with a clean cloth. If not, add one more coat of stain.
My original intent was to use the Monogram Stencils and paint the word we had chosen. Try as we might, we kept smearing the paint. We ended up using some adhesive letters we found. It would have been great to have made the stencils work but I do love our burlap letters. We discussed so many words to use. I said I wanted to have something that resonated with our family. Caitlin came up with “loving.” Oh my heart, I love that girl!
Cut and place floral foam where you will be inserting your faux fall flowers, greenery and foliage. Cover with moss, hay or straw. *I was going to use mason jars and insert the fall flowers, greenery and foliage into them. We decided we liked them better without. Experiment! You may find you like that looks and it works for you!
Add your faux fall flowers, greenery and foliage. Caitlin and I had so much fun deciding where to put each piece and looked best with what.
Add some of your pine cones, but save some for the table!
Carefully take your moss out of the bag and unroll onto the table. This is real moss, so it is fragile. Be gentle!
Place your Easy Rustic Fall Or Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece on top of the moss. Arrange your Gourds, pumpkins, and other fall decor around the centerpiece. See how our Meepy girl is making sure everything looks beautiful?!
