I have a DIY Thanksgiving centerpiece tutorial (which transitions well into the holidays), and I’m also sharing a roundup of centerpiece ideas from a talented group of bloggers/designers. You will definitely find a centerpiece perfect for your next holiday gathering!
But first, watch this quick video which shows how I created my Thanksgiving centerpiece:
It really isn’t a hard process. It is all about adding layers of lush greenery and (faux) fruit. I found everything for my centerpiece at Hobby Lobby.
To begin, I cut a piece of floral foam to size.
I love using moss, and I found moss with an adhesive back. Using scissors, I cut the moss to size.
I covered the ends and had enough to create a border. My goal was to hide the foam, and I knew most of the top would be covered with greenery and fruit.
I began with my faux greenery which I cut down into small pieces and created a border. I used hot glue to adhere the greenery.
Next I added the dried greenery. I filled the center.
After the greenery was done, I began adding my faux fruit – also using a glue gun to adhere it.
I found these pretty glittery berry stems which I cut down to size and added to the centerpiece.
And that was it! I was left with a vibrant centerpiece – perfect for your next holiday gathering.
I love this centerpiece because it feels fresh and will transition well from the fall right to the winter.
I used the moss placemats at the Indianapolis Home Show several year ago, and they made an appearance again.
I found the gold flatware, bowls, and napkins at HomeGoods.
My dining room looks so festive and ready for guests!
Too bad I’m not hosting Thanksgiving this year – haha! 😉
