Make a Modern Fall Harvest Centerpiece

Use ordinary household items & natural elements to create a fun centerpiece for your next celebration.

Fall decor can sometimes look heavy, but this sprawling centerpiece of pumpkin-colored California poppies, ivory peonies, saffron Peruvian lilies and crimson-tinted persimmon berries makes a warm, inviting space for guests. Juxtaposing unexpected flowers varieties against a monochromatic base in slate gray allows the softer hues and airy branches to stand out.

  • wooden candlesticks
  • hot glue gun + glue sticks
  • spray paint
  • tapered candles
  • flowers
  • birch bark
  • glass jar
  • tablecloth

Prepare Materials for Arrangement 

Spray paint vase and candlesticks in a well-ventilated environment, all in the same color. Soak floral foam in water then cut pieces that securely fit in a vase. Separate your flowers into smaller groups.
