Fall Florals Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Turn basic blossoms and kitchen cans into sweet arrangements for under $15.


• Empty, cleaned food cans of varying sizes

• Pliers

• Hot-glue gun and glue sticks

• Dried corn husks

• Scissors

• Ombré ribbon

• 3 or more bunches of grocery store flowers (try spider mums and zinnias)

• Floral shears or kitchen scissors

• Water to fill cans


1. Gather cans, making sure to press down any sharp edges with pliers.

2. Apply a bead of hot glue vertically down the side of the first can and adhere a piece of corn husk. Hold it in place and let set. Continue until the entire can is covered. Trim the top and bottom edges with scissors until straight. Repeat on the remaining cans.

3. Wrap a piece of ribbon around each can and knot. Trim edges to prevent fraying.

4. Choose a flower bunch and a can (for a cohesive look, stick to one color of flower for each arrangement). Hold the flower stems up to the side of the can to gauge how tall they should be (aim for a height just slightly higher than the top of the can). Snip ends with shears or scissors at an angle to allow them to soak up more water.

5. Fill each can with cool tap water and pour in the food packet that came with the bouquet. Place flowers in the can and fluff slightly until they sit comfortably. Repeat with other flowers until each can is filled. Arrange along the middle of the table.

• Three 1-lb bags of unshelled nuts in varying shades, such as walnuts, almonds and chestnuts

• 3 pillar candles

• Tray

• Fall leaves from the yard


1. Fill the first hurricane halfway with one kind of nut. Repeat with the other vessels, using a different nut for each hurricane.

2. Gently nestle a candle into the nuts in each hurricane until secure, then fill in slightly around the sides with extra nuts.

3. Place the tray, if using, on the table and group the hurricanes on top. Arrange dried leaves around the centerpiece.

Glow Time Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Inspired by outdoor luminaries, these little bags are safe for the table and take less than 20 minutes to make. These crafts are also charming when grouped in an entryway.


• Small brown paper bags

• Scissors

• Decorative border punch

• Cardboard scrap

• Painter's tape

• Nail

• Flameless votives

• Clear plastic or glass drinking cups

• Wooden cutting board or tray (optional)


1. Trim the top of each bag with scissors to a different height to create some variation in the grouping. Use the punch to create a scalloped detail along the top edge of each bag.

2. Cut the piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the front of one of the bags. With the bag still folded, slide the cardboard inside.

Print out a leaf templates and position it on the bag, using painter's tape to lightly secure them together.

Use the nail to poke holes through the template and the bag, allowing the cardboard to block the nail from going through the other side. Carefully peel off the tape and remove the template.

3. Repeat Step 2 with a different template (use all three leaf patterns to vary the bags). Stand the bags up and unfold them.

4. Fill 3 cups with switched-on votives. Place a cup inside each bag to create a glow.

5. Cluster bags on a cutting board or tray for added impact, if desired.

15 Fun And Creative Ways To Decorate With Baskets This Thanksgiving

9 DIY Fall And Thanksgiving Floral Centerpieces

I have to admit that I have somewhat of an obsession with baskets. I buy one every time I go out it seems…particularly when I’m shopping at the thrift store. You can seriously get baskets for so cheap at Goodwill and other thrift stores.

I recently bought about five for my fall decorating and they only cost me about $10 for the lot. Of course, I shopped on half off day, but still, baskets can be really inexpensive if you know where to look.

And, you can use those baskets in your fall decorating.

I personally think decorating with baskets for Thanksgiving is a wonderful idea. From cornucopias to basket wreaths, there are just so many ways that you can turn an ordinary basket into gorgeous fall décor.

And, if you DIY fall décor projects, you simply have to take a look at these 25 easy to make Thanksgiving decorating ideas. There’s everything from place settings to gorgeous gilded pumpkins.

Now, as far as decorating with baskets, you can do something as simple as adding apples to a basket and setting it on your table for a beautiful fall centerpiece that is easy and really inexpensive.

If you’re really into DIY, be sure to check out these 20 DIY outdoor fall decorations. Many of these can be coupled with your DIY basket crafts to give you a beautiful outdoor look for fall.

Whether you’re headed to the Dollar Store for a cheap basket or two, or you have a few on hand that you can use, I’ll show you 15 wonderful ways to turn those ordinary baskets into beautiful fall décor, and we’ll do it without spending a lot of money – My favorite type of DIY!

1. DIY Fall Floral Basket

One of the simplest and least expensive ways to add rustic baskets to your fall décor is to simply fill them with flowers and sit them around your home.

You can use the basket to hold a potted plant or head to the Dollar Store and pick up some really inexpensive fall foliage and then put together your own little fall arrangement.

These are great for entryways or even to sit on the porch for added color in your outdoor décor.

2. Easy DIY Thanksgiving Basket Wreath

I simply adore creating fall wreaths, and this Thanksgiving basket wreath is really simple.

You’ll need a somewhat shallow round basket for this…or if you have a round basket that is torn or otherwise broken, you can use the bottom of that. Just cut away the bottom and save the rest for another project.

When you have the basket round ready, just add flowers and other fall foliage and hang this on your door or porch.

Tutorial: twelveonmain

3. Easy DIY Floral Basket Door Décor

I love the idea of hanging a basket of fall flowers on the door. If you prefer something other than wreaths for your door decoration, this is a great alternative and it’s super easy to put together.

Just get a planter basket – one that has a flat side on one side – and add floral Styrofoam forms and your fall foliage.

This is another one that you can do with inexpensive silk foliage or use real leaves, twigs and pinecones from your yard.

Tutorial: todayscreativelife

4. Gorgeous DIY Fall Harvest Basket

I love this harvest basket. It’s filled with all of the beautiful colors of fall and it’s really easy and inexpensive to make. Head out to a craft store or to Walmart and pick up a basket and some mesh ribbons. You can add a large bow or any other decorations that you want, along with fall leaves and sunflowers for added color. This makes a beautiful centerpiece.

Tutorial: sharinglifesmoments

5. DIY Tiered Bushel Basket Décor

Bushel baskets are perfect for decorating for Thanksgiving and you can easily make this tiered one for outdoors. You’ll need two or three bushel baskets in different sizes and a dowel rod to attach them.

This is so simple. You just attach dowels onto your bushel baskets with wood and screws and when it’s all finished, just add your fall flowers or foliage.

You can even add little legs to the bottom with inexpensive wooden knobs.

Tutorial: mycreativedays

6. DIY Basket Pumpkins

Make these adorable little basket pumpkins for decorating anywhere in the house. This is such an easy and creative idea! You just paint your baskets and then turn them upside down.

The “stem” is made from twigs and branches and then you just add the leaves which you can cut green cardstock.

These are super easy and you can create as many pumpkins as you have baskets to use for your fall decorating.

Tutorial: dwellinginhappiness

7. Fall Basket Tiered Centerpiece

Here’s another, somewhat smaller, take on the tiered basket look. Using three small baskets – in different sizes – you can create this beautiful centerpiece that would look lovely on your Thanksgiving dinner table. Just glue the baskets together using a dowel rod and then add in fall foliage, pumpkins, evergreen branches or whatever else you want for decorations.

Tutorial: momminsohard

8. Easy DIY Apple Basket Décor

An apple basket, that you can pick up at any craft store for under $5, and some paint give you a wonderful decoration for fall.

Paint the basket with acrylic paints in a lovely fall shade – or do multiple shades if you want. Then, use floral wire to attach pinecones, evergreen or fall foliage.

This is a lovely centerpiece basket or you can use it to hold any number of potted plants all over the house.

Tutorial: dearcreatives

Topiaries are great for decorating the porch and you can do so many things with them.

29 Fabulous Fall Centerpieces

9 DIY Fall And Thanksgiving Floral Centerpieces

Alpha Smoot

Autumn has arrived. Celebrate the season with a centerpiece—floral arrangements, candles, and other fall crafts—inspired by the harvest season.

Alpha Smoot

The fall season brings with it so many things—pumpkin festivals, leaf-peeping trips, Thanksgiving's harvest, and the coming of winter. And as the days grow shorter and the weather starts to cool, entertaining makes its move indoors. Elevate the gathering with a seasonal centerpiece for your dining table.

For a fall centerpiece, gather what's readily found in your backyard: fallen foliage, knotty branches, pumpkins, and gourds make great fodder for a centerpiece, which can be easily scented with cinnamon or other fragrances.

Colors tend to be rather limited during the fall season with natural earth tones and fiery hues of red, orange, and gold. Focus on texture to bring out the colors of fall and add visual interest to your fall centerpiece. Think of dried wheat, fall vegetables, dark flowers, and other combinations that speak to your vision for the season.

You can also create floral arrangements in traditional colors or a set of glowing lanterns to brighten the table. Your centerpiece can be made to match a Halloween party theme or use a variety of colors and sizes that can be arranged to create your own fall aesthetic.

Earthy arrangements that incorporate dark-colored vegetables deep-purple artichokes make for a great display on the table. And you certainly can't go wrong with fragrant sprigs of rosemary or clove sticks. 

Decorate your table with anything that speaks to you: Pumpkins, gourds, nuts, flowers, candles, and other seasonal materials are all fair game. Whatever you choose, it's safe to say that all eyes will be on these tableau arrangements that perfectly mirror the bounties of the season.

Orange you glad pumpkins and squashes come in different colors? This verdant vision includes blue Hubbard, Jarrahdale, Shokichi green, and La Estrella varieties, all draped in ferns.

The trick to getting the leaves to look as if they sprang up this way is to lay them out to dry until they begin to curl (at least a day). Set the pumpkins in place, then arrange the ferns and pin to secure.

If it's too chilly for alfresco dining in your neck of the woods, this centerpiece can usher the outdoors in, especially if you accessorize with specimen bugs and life chestnuts.

Take a break from fussing with formal floral centerpieces, and display wispy dried branch stalks in different vases. For a snow-kissed look that transitions beautifully from autumn to winter, lay them on paper and spray them with white floral paint before arranging.


For a low profile that encourages dinner conversation, set a block of floral foam into a shallow pewter dish and created a dome of sedum flowers, filling in the spaces with purple Queen Anne's lace, mauve hydrangeas, round star scabiosa, fuzzy foxtail grass, and spiked sea holly.

Birds' castoff plumage can add interest (and a shot of fall color) to an arrangement—or make one all on their own. The striking graphic patterns on this collection got us thinking about new ways to use a bell jar. Stand feathers up in a little vase, and add a few acorns. Another easy fall combo to display under a dome: a bird's nest and some dried oak leaves.

Branches become a colorful, sculptural centerpiece when wrapped with solid-colored merino wool and fleece. Gently pull a bit of fleece roving off the ball. Press end of fiber against a branch, and start wrapping tightly, gently pulling the fleece apart—without tearing it—as you go.

Wrap the branch until the piece of fleece runs out, and then add more fleece as needed, going back over the last inch of wrapped fleece with each new piece.

The friction of your fingers on the fibers and the natural oils from your skin help the fleece stay on the branch and adhere to itself.



During the last months of the gardening year, the color palette is more limited than in spring and summer, so texture becomes key.

In this tall display, impressive on a buffet or a drinks table, feathery heads of rust-red amaranth were paired with pale-green protea, a more muscular tropical flower.

Both stand out among lanky millet grasses, and lady's mantle fills in any gaps a wispy green cloud.

Pointy green-and-russet sweet gum leaves star in this earthy arrangement, with support from the vegetable garden. Contrasting shapes and textures were added in the form of prickly deep-purple artichokes and smooth green (unripe) persimmons. This would work well on a coffee table where people are hovering over a cheese board.

Autumn's bounty has found its way from the field, creating a seasonal backdrop for a sit-down feast. Look for unusual produce at the farmers' market or pumpkin patch, keeping an eye out for moody hues and interesting shapes and textures. This display includes Black Futsu and Long Island Cheese pumpkins, as well as bowls of knobby black radishes.

Dress up plain woven bread baskets by painting them a single, glistening shade and fitting colorful fabric inside. For a lush centerpiece, insert a plastic liner, and fill with a mix of neutral, silvery-leafed plants along with flowers in deep purples and soft magentas. Here, we used mums, dusty miller, viburnum, globe thistle, and kale leaves—all inexpensive and readily available in fall.

Get the Shimmery Lined Cornucopia How-To

A basic cornucopia basket gets a glamorous makeover, thanks to sparkly paint and fabric. Fruits and vegetables in rich shades of ruby and amethyst spill out jewels. For a soft shine, brush the produce with an edible petal dust, a finish available at baking-supply stores.

Johnny Miller

This dipping technique works on pillar candles too. Center them on Dutch tiles, which will catch any melted wax. Stagger them at varying heights in mismatched holders for a display that adds visual interest without barring guest conversations across the table.


Roland Bello

Even for a harvest feast, mismatching tableware is more en vogue than ever: Botanical dinner plates were the starting point for this table. A fresh color palette pulled from the floral pattern—yellow, lavender, brown, and gray—ties everything together. For the centerpiece, jewel-toned plants and squashes are arranged in galvanized trays for a display that takes mere minutes.


A white-pumpkin shell becomes the vase for an arrangement of roses, daffodils, ranunculuses, calla lilies, tulips, and hypericum berries in fall colors—yellows, peaches, and shades of orange. Smaller pumpkins and votive candles in orange-glass holders fill out the centerpiece.

Aaron Dyer

With a gilded touch, fallen leaves are transformed into a rustic, elegant centerpiece. Simply find leaves and bare branches to craft an arrangement. (There's no need to press the leaves; the beauty is in their natural form.) Spray them over with gold paint; let dry. Hot-glue them to the branches, then arrange in a vase.


Maria Robledo

For an eye-catching centerpiece, turn a glass compote into a horn of plenty with glittering Indian corn and squash. The trick is to vary the intensity of the sparkle by covering some ears completely and using the glitter sparingly on others. The squash needs nothing more than a glittered stem to shine.

Get the Leather-Trimmed Lanterns How-To

To fill your dining room with golden light, group leather-trimmed lanterns holding beeswax pillars. A trio of varied heights is handsome enough to stand in for a flower arrangement, and comes together in minutes from basic materials: leather strips, brass fasteners, and glass hurricanes.
