DIY Farmhouse Dining Table Centerpiece
This post contains affiliate images or links. Thanksgiving is just a few days away! I realized I still had food shopping and decorating to do. We got most of the groceries we needed over the weekend.
The only thing I needed to do was to decorate the table. What to do, what to do!? Make this gorgeous Easy Rustic Fall Or Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece with fall and Thanksgiving decor and craft supplies we purchased from Oriental Trading of course!
I love to find DIY and crafting projects for my home. Caitlin and I have made several DIY projects inspired by ideas fro Oriental Trading, including the gorgeous DIY Floral Easter Egg Wreath. I cannot wait to show you what we are making for Christmas!
So Many Great Wedding Decor Options
My oldest daughter is getting married soon. We are doing most of the decor ourselves. I was relieved to find Oriental Trading Company had an entire section dedicated to weddings.
We got started with some Mason Jar fun in my post, 7 Ways To Plan A Magical Wedding On A Budget. All you need are a handful of supplies from Oriental Trading Company and a few hours! Before you know it, you will have a beautiful new decorative item for your home.
Here is what you will need to make my DIY Farmhouse Dining Table Centerpiece :
- Wooden Flower Box
- Clean rag
- Bag of Pine Cones
- Moss Table Runner
- Faux Eucalyptus Stems
- Monogram Stencils or adhesive letters
- Acrylic paint
- Faux fall flowers, leaves, greenery
- Gourds, pumpkins, and other fall decor
- Floral foam
- Moss or hay
Step One: Stain your DIY Flower Box Centerpiece
Step Two: If you like to allow the wood grain to show through, wipe the stain with a clean cloth. If not, add one more coat of stain.
Step Three: Using adhesive letters, spell a word that is something that resonates with your family. Caitlin came up with “loving.” Oh my heart, I love that girl!
Step Four: Cut and place floral foam inside box and cover with moss, hay or straw.
Step Five: Add your faux fall flowers, greenery and foliage. Caitlin and I had so much fun deciding where to put each piece and looked best with what.
Step Six: Add some of your pine cones, but save some for the table!
Step Seven: Carefully take your moss out of the bag and unroll onto the table. This is real moss, so it is fragile. Be gentle!
Place your DIY Farmhouse Dining Table Centerpiece on top of the moss. Arrange your Gourds, pumpkins, and other fall decor around the centerpiece. See how our Meepy girl is making sure everything looks beautiful?!
Do you decorate for fall and/or Thanksgiving? I would love to hear about what you do to make your home festive! Please share below!

Your Fall/Thanksgiving centerpiece looks really great. We decorate for Thanksgiving but not very much. The Thanksgiving decorations are only out for about a week or so and then we do a lot of decorating for Christmas. Thanks for the chance to win!!

I love this! I actually don’t cook so when we host Thanksgiving, I like to go all out with the decorations, and creating a cool centerpiece is always key! I will have to give this a try!

This is really cute. I want to start making some of myown signs and things like that. I need to figure out a good and easy way to cut my wood.

Love this idea. I think it could be changed around for different holidays too.

Cindy Ingalls saysNovember 21, 2017 at 4:23 pm
When it comes to Thanksgiving decor I really adore the rustic look. It kind of reminds me of the type of decorations the Pilgrims would have had at their own table.
Cassie saysNovember 21, 2017 at 5:53 pm
I love this look so much and I can’t believe you made it yourself! We don’t celebrate thanksgiving over here in Australia but I can still think of the perfect place for this centrepiece!

Mary Songer saysNovember 22, 2017 at 6:53 pm
We don’t usually decorate for thanksgiving but the day after we start to bring out the Christmas decorations. We won’t get the tree for a couple of weeks but I can put out lots of little decorations and lights. We even have one of those stocking lamps from A Christmas Story.
Heather saysNovember 22, 2017 at 7:23 pm
This is beautiful and definitely doesn’t look like a DIY! Excellent job! This would be great for Christmas with different colors too.

I love decorating our home for the holidays. I try to look online to get ideas. Our favorite things to do is use items from outside of our centerpieces.
Jennifer Boehme saysNovember 23, 2017 at 7:31 pm
I only decortate for fall a little. I do something easy because when it comes down, all that Christmas stuff has to go up. I like the candles, hay, pumpkins, and quick nice things for fall.
Natasha saysNovember 24, 2017 at 1:08 am
Awww this is so lovely! I love making my own decor when I can find the time!

Alice F saysNovember 26, 2017 at 5:39 pm
I do decorate for thanksgiving! I use real leaves from outside and sort of clean them up and lay them around the house in groups and set pumpkins on them for a fall look and feel.

This is a beautiful centerpiece. Now I am motivated and inspired to make one.
KENNETH OHL saysNovember 28, 2017 at 5:39 pm
my wife is a big holiday decorator she decorates for all the holidays she loves to do it and I help her with it
Nancy saysNovember 28, 2017 at 5:48 pm
I don’t go all out. I may have a wreath and I have two artificial pumpkins.
Laurajj saysNovember 29, 2017 at 12:37 am
We do decorate for all the holidays, its so special for our little one. I try to make things for not alot to decorate. One of my favorites is to make wreaths for the front door for each holiday!
Annmarie W. saysNovember 30, 2017 at 11:51 am
I don’t too much fall/Thanksgiving decorating. Just pumpkins on the front step, a fall wreath, take out some throws for the family room, and fall tablecloth in the dining room with fall centerpiece.
Robin Abrams saysNovember 30, 2017 at 9:03 pm
That is so beautiful. We decorate for every holiday. My grand daughter and I go over board on decorating
Toughcookiemommy saysNovember 30, 2017 at 11:47 pm
This is such a gorgeous centerpiece. I bet it would make any table look beautiful for Thanksgiving or any other holiday for that matter.

If a pumpkin counts then yes I do. I’ve put out some hay before as well.

Jennifer Rote saysDecember 7, 2017 at 9:22 pm
Yes, I decorate for fall and/or Thanksgiving. Not a ton but have a few scarecrows, pumpkins and gourds.
Rose Santuci-Sofranko saysDecember 13, 2017 at 9:39 pm
Sadly, I don’t really decorate for Autumn, altho it is my second favorite season! Thanks and God Bless!
Brigitte Bauman saysDecember 15, 2017 at 5:42 am
I enjoyed reading your review. This would make the perfect gift for a friend of mine who loves gardening. It would be an excellent way for her to show off her flowers.
