Inexpensive Fall Table Centerpiece Idea ~ Each year I like to create a little fall project and this year I put together a very inexpensive fall table centerpiece. It will sit on the kitchen table during the fall season. It isn’t a tall centerpiece because I find tall centerpieces although pretty are not practical on tables when trying to have a conversation while eating.
Here is how I created this…
Inexpensive Fall Table Centerpiece Idea
The most expensive items were the three fall themed candleholders but I received them as a gift from my sister-n-law several years ago. The unscented votive candles were bought at the dollar store. I don’t buy scented candles for use on the table because I don’t want the scent to conflict with the food being served and eaten.
The plastic gold tray was a thrift store purchase for a couple of dollars. As you can see it had seen better days so I freshened it up with first a coat of primer and then a coat of gold metallic paint.
The cute little sparkly pumpkins were also a thrift store purchase. I tend to randomly stop by at a few of my favourite thrift stores a couple times a month. It’s rarely that I have success finding exactly what I am looking for at the time when I exactly want to buy it. Instead I will stop by with an open mind and try to look at items for whatever possibilities they may have. When I bought the pumpkins out of season I had no idea what I was going to do with them but I knew they definitely had potential!
The fall decorative leaves were purchased several years ago and have been reused different ways many times. I think I only paid a couple of dollars for them too.
I should also mention that I bought the fall coloured cloth you see on the table while on a river cruise in Germany a few years ago. I never buy souvenirs when I travel and I wrote about it here in Buying Souvenirs – Clutter Collectors Or Treasured Keepsakes? Instead I look for lightweight items that I will actually use like not too pricey fashion jewellery, scarves or linens from the different locations I have visited.
Putting this inexpensive fall table centerpiece together was so easy and literally took minutes. Here are some beauty shots to give you an idea and some inspiration.
Estimated total cost for everything in this inexpensive fall table centerpiece not including the fall candleholders was about $10.00. Everything except for the candle votives are totally reusable too!
Here are some other indoor fall décor projects I have done…
Last year my daughter and I had fun creating My Fall Vignette Just For Fun for the staircase.
The orange deco mesh and brown ribbon used in last year’s project were made into this Easy Deco Mesh And Ribbon Fall Wreath this year.
Another project I made this year is this Inexpensive Easy Fall Vignette on the buffet/coffee station in the kitchen. The chalkboard was made from an outdated dry mounted print I picked up at the thrift store.
