An Easy Thanksgiving Centerpiece Idea

It’s getting to that time of year when easy and frugal sounds fabulous when it comes to holiday decorating!

I first saw a version of this easy Thanksgiving centerpiece idea shared on HomeTalk by Barb of The Everyday Home and thought it would make a great centerpiece for Thanksgiving! Here’s my version of this fabulous faux pumpkin planter!

This is such a quick and easy project, and with fall decor going on sale well before Thanksgiving  a frugal one as well.

Here’s all you need!
A Faux or Real Pumpkin for your planter
Oasis (water absorbing kind if you use real flower stems)
Wire cutters
Faux flower stems or Real Flowers.

and for the tutorial you can watch this video put together by HomeTalk where Vanessa and I, along with our friend KariAnne of Thistlewood Farm, share 5 great “Decorating on a Dime” projects!

Vanessa will be showing you a re-cap tomorrow of her projects and you can see KariAnne’s fabulous mantel over at Thistlewood Farm!

I really love how this Thanksgiving centerpiece turned out!

I was able to use colors that compliment my dining room decor, but this would also be beautiful with mums, ornamental peppers or even some gorgeous red and orange leaves!

During this busy season don’t let time and money stop you from creating beautiful holiday decor!
