A printable list of supplies and instructions are below. The items pictured served as my inspiration and were not all used. That just means there is more to come!

First I shopped my home craft room for supplies left over from previous seasons. Then I made a trip to my Dollar Tree for a few more things I would need to make this Fall Centerpiece. It is entirely possible I brought back more than I went after. It happens. Did  you know that you can shop online and Pick up in the store with free shipping at Dollar Tree? Yep, so shop early and often!

The cute little leafy pumpkin which becomes the center of attention is leftover Fall decor from previous years. I found six of those on clearance when our Hancock’s Fabric store went out of business. They are so cheap! See how I used them in a Thanksgiving Tablescape.

My first order of business was to glam up this gorgeous little votive candle holders. I could not believe my eyes when I spotted the pair on the vase shelf at Dollar Tree! There were only two so I grabbed them quick. Did you see my Insta Story about it?

Have you seen these stickers in the fall decor at Dollar Tree yet? I knew I wanted to use them somehow because I love that blingy leaf so they are going onto the bottom of the Votive holders! Because they are peel and stick it was super easy to do.

Instant glam in just the few seconds it took to cut, peel and stick. I love the falling leaves! The candles will add a nice warm charm to our Fall table decor.

FLORAL FOAM

My rectangular wood box is leftover from a bouquet of flowers I received a while back. He’s a keeper too! Three pieces of floral foam fit inside. I did have to trim one piece just a tiny bit.

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER

After adding the floral foam, the rest goes pretty quick. 

First dab a small amount of hot glue on to set the votive candle holders in place.

Then I inserted a wooden skewer into the pumpkin and placed it in the center of the container. 

Next use hot glue to attach a good amount of moss to hide the floral foam.

Cut the leaf stems apart using wire cutters. I like to sort them according to their patterns which makes it quicker to select the correct ones I want during the adding process.

ADDING THE LEAVES

This Fall centerpiece is designed to be the same both front and back so it can be used as a dining table centerpiece. With that in mind, be sure to do the same thing on one side that you do on the other. It’s all about symmetry.

I began adding the leaves in the center of the project and taking a look I think it’s coming together nicely.

Continue adding leaves taking care to do the same thing on one side that you do on the other. Use enough leaves for a nice full look all the way around.

ONE FINAL TOUCH

There are four of the pumpkin picks used, two on each side in the center. I added battery powered votive candles for the final touch.

How to make your own rectangular Rustic Fall Centerpiece for table decor. This Fall table decor is designed to be seen from all sides for a table centerpiece.

Active Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour
Difficulty Easy

Materials

  • 4 bunches of Fall leaves (Dollar Tree)
  • 1 pack small Pumpkins on a stick (Dollar Tree)
  • 1 Styrofoam Pumpkin for center
  • 2 Glass Votive Candle holders (Dollar Tree)
  • 1 pkg. peel and stick Fall leaves with faux jewels (Dollar Tree)
  • 1 small pkg. Spanish moss (Dollar Tree)
  • Rectangular container
  • Floral foam, enough to fit in your container (Dollar Tree)
  • 1 Wooden skewer

Tools

  • Wire Cutters
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Hot Glue

Instructions

  1. Cut the peel and stick jeweled leaves to fit the glass votive
  2. Apple the peel and stick jeweled leaves to the votive
  3. Now fit the floral foam into your rectangular container. I did not glue the foam into the container.
  4. Dab a small amount of hot glue onto the bottom of the Votive's and place them near the ends of the container as shown in the pictorial tutorial (see blog post)
  5. Insert the wooden skewer into the bottom of your pumpkin and then insert the pumpkin into the center of the container.
  6. Now add the moss using the hot glue. Dab some hot glue and carefully apply the moss. It's easy to get burned to be careful.
  7. Time to add the leaves. Use the wire cutters to cut apart all of the leave stems
  8. Begin in the center and be sure to add exactly the same 2 matching leaves on the opposite side. Simply insert each stem into the foam leaving the center leaves up a little close to the bottom of the pumpkin.
  9. Now begin filling in around the rest of the container with more leaves pushing them down close to the base so leaves are hanging over the edge.
  10. Last thing to do is add the pumpkins. I placed two in the front and two in the back toward the center.
  11. Pop a battery operated votive candle in your holders and enjoy your new Fall Centerpiece!
