Pumpkin Centerpiece

4 Materials
10 Minutes

Here’s a quick and easy Fall pumpkin centerpiece idea that you can put together in just minutes

Pin for later

You only need a few items to make this beautiful pumpkin centerpiece:

I decided not to use the white tallow berries

A rustic wooden box (we made ours out of pallet wood) or other rustic container

Filler material like plastic or paper or even pine cones

Spanish moss

Eucalyptus branches

Various sizes of pumpkins

Because you probably won’t have enough pumpkins to fill the whole box to the top, you’ll want to use something to fill the box with.

I used plastic because that’s what I had on hand.

Fill the box all the way to the top with the plastic.

I added a layer of paper on top of the plastic so you wouldn’t be able to see the plastic shining through the moss.

Next add a good thick layer of Spanish moss

Now it’s time to put in the pumpkins

Start with the largest one in the center. The weight of the pumpkins will settle them into the plastic a little but you’ll want to keep them sitting on top as much as you can. Then add your medium pumpkins, facing them in different directions. Tuck the eucalyptus branches in and around them.

Now layer in your smallest pumpkins, leaning them against the others and filling any empty spaces with pumpkins and eucalyptus.

And that's it!

Now you’re ready to set the table!
