Simply Fall....How to: table centrepiece....

I've been busy as a beaver with all my Fall preparations! Even though I'm sad to see summer go, I find that adding some warm autumnal touches around my home really help brighten my spirits! My latest creation has been this centrepiece. I used mostly things I had around the house....all I needed to purchase were 2 branches of 'faux' Fall flowers, a roll of  ribbon and a  bag of popcorn :keep reading to see how I used it ;)

The pictures are pretty self explanatory...just scroll on down to see the step by step...

What you will need.... (plus double sided tape :) )

Here's how I used the filler!! using the popcorn as a filler, I didn't even need to cut the stems, just bend them...

Trim off a couple of flowers and use them to fill in empty spaces...

Bend the ribbon around fingers for a soft curvy effect...

I had these square candle holders sitting around so I put them to work too!

The grand finale!! This project took only about 15 min, was inexpensive (around $15) and adds some wonderful color to my welcoming!!
