I love the rustic look of this easy Hurricane Lamp Fall Centerpiece. Don’t worry if you don’t have a hurricane lamp. This one is made from a thrift store glass vase and tumbler for less than $2! The dried beans, popcorn and green split peas give it a warm homey look. Add the clay pot pumpkin and some gourds and you have a lovely coordinated table that is perfect for Thanksgiving.
This centerpiece appeals to the vegetable gardener in me. It is made by using green beans, artichokes and asparagus spears, wrapped in green ribbon around white pillar candles.

The colors are what make this lovely place setting. The purple is just perfect with the colors of fall. To make this just trace your leaf with heavy card stock and use it as a shape for your sugar cookie dough. Place the cookie on the leaf and then tie it all up with your ribbon and napkin.

This DIY idea combines napkin rings and place cards in one. It turns everyday cloth napkins in to something special. Just place a shaft of wheat in the center of a rolled napkin and tie it with a piece of jute. Attach name cards made by printing guests’ names on decorative paper and then cutting them to fit on metal pendant frames. Glue the paper tags to the back of the frames and attach with another piece of jute. (can get the pendant frames at any craft supply store .) Idea shared from BHG.
I have used this idea outside as planters, but it would also work well for your Thanksgiving centerpiece. Just hollow out pumpkins and place a small plastic container inside. Fill with real or faux fall greenery and berries. Idea shared from The Examiner.These white faux pumpkins can be hollowed out and used as vases. Add some cat’s tails for height and fill in the lower part with berries, fall leaves and autumn colored flowers.
