Decorative Fall Centerpiece

Roeshel #MichaelsMakers

The season is changing. Cooler mornings, shorter days and soon pretty leaves. As a part of the Michaels Makers’ team challenge, I’m decorating the dining room table for fall entertaining.

I layered a little bling (sparkly mesh runner) with a little rustic (burlap runner) down the center of my tablecloth.

Autumn Abound Link Party: SHOW OFF your fall inspired ideas:

DIY Fall Door/Wall Decor Craft

Fall is in the air! The upcoming baby shower theme will be “woodland”. Perfect for the fall season, don’t you think? So I made up a few of these twig leaf door or wall decor crafts for prizes. And just in time to participate in the Autumn Abound Fall Blog Hop (more on that below)!

autum DIY decor - diyshowoff.com

Materials:

  • Twig/stick leaf form from the craft store (you could even make your own) or grapevine wreathes, etc. 
  • Fall floral pics including faux acorns, wheat, leaves, feathers 
  • Hot glue 
  • Burlap ribbon
  • Twine 
  • Twist tie or floral wire

Tools: wire cutters, scissors, hot glue gun

Time: approx. 10 minutes

What I did:

Simply assemble in layers and secure each embellishment with hot glue.  DIY Fall Decor Craft at diyshowoff.com

Cut a 36″ piece of burlap. Fold and snip the ends. Lay flat and overlap ends. Tie a knot/bow using twine to gather and finish the burlap bow. Secure to arrangement using hot glue.

Use a twist tie to assist with hanging. 

I think that was the easiest tutorial ever! If I can do it, so can you!

They’d look great used as a centerpiece too. Or hang the opposite direction…
