Easy Fall Centerpiece

Sometimes during the hustle and bustle of preparing the Turkey, fixin’ the sides and baking yummy Pumpkin Bread, we run out of  time for the rest of our home. This Fall Centerpiece took me, literally, less than 5 minutes.

I bet you have most of these supplies around your house too.

Fall Centerpiece Supplies:

  • Wreath with silk leaves
  • Glass container
  • Candle
  • Acorns gathered from the yard


  1. Place wreath on table
  2. Add glass container and candle
  3. Add the acorns

Note: You may need to bake the acorns to get the critters out. Just place them on a cookie sheet and bake for about an hour on very low heat, 250 degrees.

You could also change the centerpiece for the seasons, maybe an evergreen wreath and the jar filled with Christmas ornaments or a white wreath with blue tinsel and white snowflakes…the ideas are endless!

This Fall Centerpiece is on our coffee table but you could also use it for a Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece.

  1. Oh! I love it! I always prefer to make my own centerpieces, verses buying them all prefabricated. Right now, my centerpiece is a twig pumpkin from WalMart, on a single red/brown salad plate I bought at ShopKo with glass pebbles and glass acorns 😀

    Simple and very pretty. Something even I could pull off… I think. 🙂

  3. That’s adorable! I wish we had acorns here…but I bet I could use mixed shelled nuts too!

    If you haven’t done so already, I would like to invite you to participate in my weekend linkup. It involves anything related to homemaking: recipes, sewing, decorating, crafts, DIY, a story about what you did today, etc! There’s a button at the top of my sidebar you can grab to help you to remember to come back each week.

    Have a great week!


  4. What a beautiful centerpiece! I love the autumn colors and the look of nature.

  5. Thanks for the idea – we’re having 50 of my husband’s family for Thanksgiving (they bring the food!) and I’m looking for tablescapes for that many tables 🙂

  6. what a lovely centre piece. I will try that next year for Thanksgiving. I’m Canadian, so we had our Thanksgiving on your Columbus day holiday, in October. But a very beautiful idea, for next season. Love the site. mb
