How to Make a Centerpiece
Incorporate natural elements
A slice of wood with the bark still intact can make a beautiful yet simple base for a table centerpiece.
Use unusual focal features
Add items to capture attention. Instead of opting for flowers or faux plants, try dried wheat or other decorative grasses.
Use old jars to display flowers
Rescue old jars and other glass items. Soak them to remove the labels and tie lace ribbons around the rim for a country-style vase.
Upcycle old papers
Create a unique planter table decoration with vintage papers, such as old musical scores. Separate the pages and wrap them around tins.
Illuminate the dining table
Arrange candles in the middle of the table for light. Use eight candles of different lengths with the tallest candles placed in the center.

DIY Fall Cornucopia in Less Than 20 Minutes

Fall is here! I love fall decorations! I know I mentioned this in a previous post, but I can't help myself. I'm not sure if I love fall decorations or Halloween decorations more, but luckily I can put them both up at the same time. I have been wanting to make a cornucopia for a long time. They look so big and daunting, but this one was pretty simple and took no time at all! Plus, since it's made out of chicken wire, it was also super cheap. Check out my instructions below. Step 1: Gather Your Materials
