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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Insert three to four magnolia flowers into the floral foam inside the pumpkin wreath frame.
Insert faux or real magnolia leaves into the dry foam around the centerpiece. I added leaves along the base and a few to the top of the arrangement.
Tip: To give them a pretty and shiny look, spray the magnolia leaves with leaf shine before adding them to your centerpiece.
Add dried birch branches to the ends on both sides of the pumpkin to give it some dimension.
Add pods or pinecones to fill in and for added texture. Use whatever you can find in your background or neighborhood. Tuck in and secure with hot glue wherever you have a space.
This centerpiece will look beautiful on any fall table.
I set my dining table with a burlap table runner and my beautiful magnolia dishes to go with the flowers in this centerpiece. It looks simply stunning, surrounded by a few amber candles that give a warm glow.
