Thrifty Style Team September projects

Have you seen Gilmore Girls? 
My daughter and I are watching it together. It's all about moms and teenage daughters and lots of coffee and dysfunctional families and awkward conversation and commitment...oh, and really catchy comebacks and speed talking that will make you laugh until you cry!

One of the main characters Rory has a boyfriend Dean and she thinks she's happy and loves him until Jess comes to town, and then she's not so sure anymore so she breaks up with Dean and starts going out with Jess. But then she remembers how nice Dean was and how well he treated her and she wonders if she made the right decision.

Commitment is hard at the tender age of 16.

Well guess what? This fall wreath centerpiece requires no long term commitment on your part! Did you appreciate that awkward segue? 😍

Easy Fall centerpiece

Did I mention this project is easy? And fast?

Oh good, I was just checking to make sure you heard me!

Rather than reinvent the wheel (or the wreath in this case), I decided to revamp the amazing tabletop wreath centerpiece that I made in the spring. You know, just spice it up for Fall. It was easy and inexpensive too!

before and after

With just a little zhushing, it fits seamlessly into my colorful Fall decor and I couldn't be more pleased! Normally my Fall decor is neutral with soft colors like this simple fall tablescape or black and white but this year I just felt the need for more color in my life! You can see this year's colorful  fall tablescape here and my fall mantel here and a colorful DIY fall wreath here.

This fall, it's all about the C O L O R baby! 

Supplies to make an easy centerpiece for Fall

You most likely have these supplies on hand already. Here are the supplies you'll need to make this centerpiece:


Put it all together

The round tray is optional, but I love how it holds everything together and makes it so easy to move your centerpiece if you need to! Just make sure it fits your wreath. I used a round galvanized tray but any kind will do. 

Place the wreath inside the tray and insert your hurricane into the hole in the wreath. You can add a candle to your hurricane (I'm loving these battery operated faux candles with a timer). I also tucked a bit of moss into my glass hurricane for my candle to sit on.

So far super easy right?

Add a touch of Fall

To make this centerpiece perfect for fall, you need to add just two simple things:

  • fall leaves
  • mini pumpkins

I found these adorable mini pumpkins with clips from Dollar Tree. They were so easy to just clip to the greenery in my centerpiece, and they take just seconds to remove! There was only 1 pack of the white pumpkins left in my store, but I made it work. You could also hot glue these clips to the back of small pumpkins to make your own clip-able pumpkins!

I just clipped the pumpkins evenly around the wreath.

The leaves are also from the dollar store. I simply pulled the leaves off the stem and tucked them into the greenery. They're not attached with anything but they stay put nicely.

The leaves add that rich fall color that really makes this centerpiece pop!

Where to display your fall centerpiece

I needed a little something colorful on the small  painted dresser at my front door and this simple fall centerpiece is the finishing touch!

This easy centerpiece would look great on a dining table, coffee table or the surface of a hutch or dresser. Really any flat surface where you need a little bit of color! You could even place it on a bed or daybed for a fun pop of fall, like I did here in our  cottage sunroom

In fact, if you need me, I'll be right here reading a book!
