Here is a fun Fall project I created using a repurposed embroidery hoop. It makes the perfect flameless candle centerpiece and the supplies are very inexpensive. You will love how cost effective and easy it is to make from things you may already have at home!
Fall Flameless Candle Centerpiece
You can use any size two piece embroidery hoop for this project.
The larger, the more of a statement it makes!
The embroidery hoop I am using today is a 12".
I began by slightly turning the inside part of the hoop to create a 3D effect and used hot glue and E6000 glue to secure it.
Next, I added a string and brought it outside to spray paint.
I used an orange spray paint with primer to paint the hoop to resemble a pumpkin.
When the paint dried I began layering faux fall foliage in the bottom of the circle.
I began with fall leaves and then added berries, securing them with hot glue and floral wire.
I added a 3 1/2" wood slice slightly off center in the middle of the foliage and secured it with small scraps of wood for balance.
Next, I added a burlap and lace bow with hot glue.
The wood slice is to hold a flameless candle, you wouldn't want to use a real candle because of the fire hazard.
I sat the centerpiece in a small dish to create a base for the hoop.
The centerpiece is a beautiful addition to the center of the table or the mantel for Fall.
This was an easy project and most of the materials I used are readily available at the dollar store, craft store, or Amazon.

Hi this is lovely!!! I like that you balanced the off center screw with how you placed the leaves. The screw adds some interest to the whole piece. Thank you for sharing. I was just thinking since you wired the leaves on you could reuse the frame for Christmas and different holidays. I am picturing an Easter theme with a rag doll rabbit and matte painted eggs with pussy willow and / or forsythia and leaves.
