A Simple Elegant Centerpiece

If you're still looking for a simple to create and inexpensie centerpiece for Thanksgiving, this is a really easy to create idea.

This is just a potpourri of flowers that mostly came from the Dollar Tree.  Add in a few pumpkins spray painted also from the DT, and you're almost there.

Finish it off with a few feathers and for a little glitz, make some ribbon loops out of shiny gold ribbon from the DT. Just cut a length of wired ribbon and pinch together at the two ends, tie off with fine wire.

I used white, gold and oil rubbed bronze spray paint.
 Love the way the ribbon glows in the candlelite.  I pushed wooden skewers through the bottom of the pumpkins, pushed the skewers into the foam for varying heights.

Basically the same flowers, just in a different container.

Most of the same elements again.  Just mix in everything that you have.

Look around and see what you have, I am sure you can pull together something beautiful and very inexpensively. 

Hope you all have a very Blessed Thanksgiving.  Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy your visits.

  1. Marty, glitzy & ritzy! I love it girl. I haven't been to Dollar Tree in quite awhile. This has spurred me on to visit. I am wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'll be checking out from the blogging world for awhile.

  20. Wow, how incredible that you took a collection of $1 items and made them look like a million bucks. That centerpiece is incredible, they're all amazing.

  21. Isn't dollar Tree great? I can't say I've been able to make anything as lovely as your centerpiece (but I'm up for trying for Thanksgiving) but I do browse thru dollar tree a few times a year and I usually find something. The best part is when people assume I went to a high-end store in town.
