An Easy Fall Harvest Centerpiece
Celebrate the bounty of the garden with this charming tabletop decor.
Add some fall flair to your table with this simple craft. Easy to find fence pickets make up a long box that is filled with foliage from the yard and a few dried accents.
Our apples float high above the foliage with the help of some receipt holders from the local office supply store. When the season ends, save the box to fill with pine branches or ornaments for the holiday season.
What you will need: (2) 8 ft. fence pickets (1/2"x6"x96")/ handsaw or power saw/ 35-40 finishing nails/ 5 receipt holders/ 5 apples/ 20 cinnamon sticks/ twine/ floral foam/ 6 small plastic containers (we used empty deli containers)/ branch cuttings from your yard or foliage from florist (if no trees to prune)/ dried fall flower accents (optional)
Filling your picket box
Use trimmings from your own trees and bushes (or purchase foliage, if necessary) to fill the space around the apples, inserting the stems into the foliage to preserve them and give them some stability. Add dried fall accents (if desired) and place a cinnamon stick bundle between each of the apples.
