Follow these easy steps to make your fall centerpiece.

In addition to the instructions below, watch my YouTube video to see how easily this beautiful arrangement comes together.

Step 1: Treat wreath frames with cinnamon

To give your fall centerpiece a rusty, aged look that smells amazing, start treating your Dollar Tree pumpkin wreath frames with cinnamon. First, paint on a coat of Mod Podge, then sprinkle or dip the frame in the cinnamon until they are completely covered. Then, let dry.

Step 2: Cover foam blocks with moss

Cut a V-shape along the top of one foam block, no more than one inch deep.

Using spray glue and the floral pins, cover the sides of the foam with Spanish moss.

Then, using hot glue, attach this foam block positioned with the V cut on the top onto the terra cotta tray.

Block 2: Using Spray glue and floral pins, cover the top and sides of the foam block with Spanish moss and set it aside.

Step 3: Create the pumpkin shape

Take your two Dollar Tree pumpkin wreath frames, place the second floral block in between the two frames, then close it to create a whole pumpkin shape. The floral foam should now just be floating inside of the pumpkin.

Place the bottom of the two pumpkin frames inside of the V on the first foam black in the terra cotta tray.

Using the floral pins, attach the frame to the foam.

Secure with hot glue on top. Take a small wire and attach the two stems to close your pumpkin.

Step 4: Secure the foam blocks

Now, using hot glue, attach the second foam block inside of the pumpkin to the first foam block you placed the Dollar Tree pumpkin wreath frame inside to secure them together.

Now that you have the frames connected and foam blocks secured, you can begin to decorate.

Step 5: Add magnolia flowers

Insert three to four magnolia flowers into the floral foam inside the pumpkin wreath frame.

Tip: To give them a pretty and shiny look, spray the magnolia leaves with leaf shine before adding them to your centerpiece.
