Hey, everyone!

For those of you that were along for the ride in my adventures with wreath-decorating, this is Part 2 of that project, really. I had some parts of the wreath that were left over and I wanted to make a small centerpiece to put on our pallet wood shelf that we have over the kitchen sink. I have a toddler so my decorations are all in areas that are up and away from his reach. And now that we have that shelf up, I like to change it up for the different holidays…

Here’s what I used to put together this very simple and inexpensive centerpiece… of course with a few things that I already had around the house:

  • Bread plate (or a basket- I just needed something rectangular to fit on our shelf)
  • Candles
  • Pine cones (something I dont have to buy at the store for the first time in my life, since moving up north from south FL! All I had to do was go on a nature hike with Little Monkey and pick some off the ground! Yay!)

I tried a few different setups… here was one with a flower from the wreath, but I ultimately decided to put it back on the wreath because I wanted something a little more low-key

This is the one I ultimately stuck with...

 

(EEEK!!! Dont mind the coffee cup in the sink! LOL! That is so me! I cant take a photo for the life of me… I cut off people’s heads & include dirty dishes! Aye!)

Anyways…

I have this obsession with autumn leaves and decided to use a lot more of those, along with some acorns and, also, buckeye nuts (thanks to my mom-in-law)… here’s the end result. I also decided to display a couple of gravy bowls beside it, since those are always sitting in the cupboard. Just something simple and seasonal. The best part was that I was able to make both this centerpiece and the wreath for our front door for cheap! 😀 (Want to check out the wreath? Click HERE ).

Thanks for stopping by!
