One of the easiest (and cheapest!) ways to make something pretty for your home is to use things you already have.
For this quick and easy fall centerpiece, I pulled out:
- White rectangular platter
- Mason jars (I have a million uses for these…just not canning)
- Beach rocks
- Orange pepper berry garland (that had been cut into pieces long ago)
Fill the mason jars with the rocks and nestle the candles on top. Tuck the pepper berry twigs around the jars and you’re done!
If you find that your mason jars or foliage slide around, you can always secure them with a tiny dab of hot glue. The glue will pop right off the jars and plate when you’re ready to pull this arrangement apart.
What if you don’t have a pepper berry garland? How about some faux leaves? Or real leaves from your yard? Any kind of fall foliage would work great!
You could easily substitute sand from the kids sandbox for the rocks or just put the candles directly in the jars.
Use your imagination. Can you create something beautiful using things you already have?
