I made this simple elegant centerpiece several years ago. I’ve gotten so many compliments on it, I thought you might enjoy a DIY tutorial. Enjoy!!
Here’s what you need.
- 1 Large Grapevine Wreath
- 2 Medium Sized Grapevine Wreaths
- 3 – 5 pieces of felt to cover bottoms of grapevine wreaths
- Fall Foliage Stems
- Styrofoam Little Pumpkins, gourds, etc. (I bought a pack of varying sizes and colors at Hobby Lobby).
- Glue Gun
- 1 Large Hurricane Vase
- 2 Medium Sized Hurricane Vases
- 3 Candle Holders
- 3 Candles
- Florist Wire
1. So that the wreath doesn’t scratch your table, you’ll want to glue felt to the bottom. I choose brown felt, since it was close to the color of my table. You’ll also notice, that the felt circle is a tad smaller than the grapevine wreath. Otherwise, the unsightly felt would stick out. You can always go back and trim the felt once it’s glued down.
2. Divide the Fall Foliage Stems and begin inserting in a circular pattern around each grapevine wreath covering the sides and tops. I started around the sides, then worked my way up to the top. Make sure to vary the color/sizes of foliage. Then, I went back with a glue gun to make sure that all of the foliage was secure. (You’ll attach the wreaths to each other later).
3. Arrange the foliage covered wreaths in a straight line with the large wreath in the middle and medium sized ones on each side. Use florist wire to attach together.
4. Then, glue the Styrofoam pumpkins and gourds between the wreaths (on top of where you wired the wreaths together) and around the edges. This really helps “fill” in the centerpiece so that it doesn’t look like three circles attached together. It adds depth and continuity to make it really pretty.
Add hurricane vases, candlesticks and candles! Congratulations! You’ve created a beautiful fall centerpiece that you can enjoy for years to come.
