This is My Favorite SHOP-YOUR-YARD Fall Table Décor…So Simple and Fun to Create!
And a Stunning Centerpiece for Your Holiday Table! And it’s Free!!
You Need to Shop Your Yard for 3 Things: Tree Rounds….Tree Branches…Newspaper.
Let’s Shop the Yard Together…
First – Tree Rounds. We had a tree trimmed and I was tickled to get some Tree Rounds.
The More Rugged and Rustic, the Better. Love the Rotted Center Hole….Adds Character.
Thank You Mr. Arborist. 🙂
Three Tree Rounds are Ready to Go for the Bases of the Centerpiece.
Next…Newspaper for the Leaves. After Reading the Paper, I Hung it on the Clothesline in the Sun.
I sprayed a bit of Clorox Cleaner to Wet the Pages and to quicken the Aging Process.
Within a Few Hours in the Sun, the Paper had a Tan, Weathered Look. Perfect to Create Fall Leaves.
Finally…Gather Thin Tree Branches to Fit into the Rounds. These will be the Trees.
Ready to Work Some Magic!!
Step One: Cut the Newspaper into Tiny Leaves – about 1″ Long is Good.
Gather All the Leaves.
Set Out the Tree Rounds.
Select the perfect Tree Branches.
Step Two: Hot Glue the Branch into the Round. It should stand Strong and Tall. Just Like a Tree.
Step Three: Hot Glue the Leaves to the Branches.
Take a Moment and Put on Some Green Chile Stew…Perfect on a Chilly Fall Night.
The Phases of Fall Centerpiece.
One Tree represents the Beginning of Fall – The Tree is Laden with Leaves and the Leaves are Changing Color.
The Center Tree represents Mid-Fall. It bends in the Wind. The Leaves Fall and Blow Off the Tree.
The Last Tree represents the End of Fall. Just a Handful of Leaves Hanging from its Branches…Soon the Snow will Fly.
Place the Tree Rounds Down the Center of the Table.
Beginning of Fall. Mid-Fall. End of Fall.
Set the Table. Any Color. Any Pattern. Love the Mix of Rustic with China and Stripes.
Black and White Striped Cloth. Amazon LINK.
Chile Stew with a Pop of Orange Pumpkins. Perfect.
Simple. Fun. Easy. Fancy. And Free!
