My latest and greatest masterpiece is this dining room center piece I made over the weekend. How I wish I could have captured a better picture. It looks so much better in person . Also the two glittery pumpkins have been adjusted to stick out more. If you are interested to know how I made this quick DIY… Please keep reading 😉.
Materials needed …
- Wood for box
- Wood glue and thin/ small nails
- A stain color for wood (optional)
- 3 foam pieces ( I bought mine from the Dollar Tree)
- Flowers and leaves ( also bought mine from the Dollar Tree . with the exception of the end flowers. Those were from Michaels.)
- Pumpkins or pinecones (optional)
So first thing my boyfriend put together a box for me. We bought wood from Hobby Lobby . Pictured below. We bought an 8 dollar pack and a small pack as well. The measurements worked great to fit three foam boxes. Of course he did have to trim the smaller pieces of wood. And we stained them a white color.
Once the box was made and we let the stain color dry for an hour I placed the foam boxed in the box.
Then started placing the flowers into the foam . Oh wait had to clip the flowers so they are separated.
So it’s pretty much adjusting the flowers and leaves however you want them. I went ahead and placed the candles where I wanted them to make placing the leaves easier.
Once I had the flowers and leaves in place I added the pumpkins which I had from last year.
So that’s it. Not much to it. Super easy and looks amazing!
