Fall Planter Box Centerpiece

A few months ago I made a rustic wood planter box (you can check out my tutorial for that if you want to recreate it) that I use as a centerpiece on our table. I usually keep it very simple and fill it with three faux rosemary plants.

The other day I was browsing through the craft store and I noticed some beautiful fall planters. I was tempted to purchase one but I was not in love with the high price tag! I remembered about the planter box I had at home and was inspired to recreate the look. I picked up a couple fall vines from the dollar store and by using supplies I already had I was able to make my own centerpiece for only a few dollars. I love how it turned out and I am looking forward to changing it up again each season.

For this super simple and easy project, you will need some type of box or container, a few faux potted plants, fall vines, and several small pumpkins.

I like to use faux potted plants in these arrangements as the base because they fill up a lot of the planter and are easy to work around. It’s easy to get carried away and add too many pieces resulting in a cluttered looking arrangement. To me simpler is usually better.

I placed the three faux rosemary plants equally spaced in the planter.

I then took one of the vines and looped it around the potted plants.

Then I took the second vine and did the same thing working in the opposite direction.

To finish off my planter I filled any bare spots with extra leaves I had from previous projects and a few mini pumpkins. If you want this to be a permanent piece I would recommend using hot glue to secure the arrangement.

I love all of the different textures and fall colours in this arrangement. The best part is that it was super easy and quick to make, yet makes a big statement.

This has me getting excited for fall and I’m looking forward to slowly adding more fall decor to my home over the next few months.

    Beautiful, since it’s all faux I think even a sturdy cardboard box that you can cover with some fall ish fabric will work. Thanks for the inspiration.

  • I made my box out of cardboard then covered with wood blind slats I had! Then added trim left over from my valance. Your right I went overboard for Fall decor! But once Holidays are over, I'll tone it down! Yours is simple and pretty!
