How to make an easy Fall table decoration
Do you love to entertain family and friends? Do you like to have the table set just so? This easy candle table centerpiece will make any table glow with the colors of the season.
For this project I used:
Autumn leaves from the dollar store
Hot glue gun
16ss rhinestones in colors of Sunflower AB and Topaz
Wax tipped tool or tweezers
Begin by cutting the leaves off the plastic vine. Decide on a circular arrangement and the size of your centerpiece: I put bigger leaves on the bottom and smaller leaves on top overlapping each other and kept the circumference to about 12 inches.
Using a hot glue gun, glue the leaves together beginning with the bottom leaves.
Once the leaves are glued together, decide on how you want the rhinestones. I used Topaz and Sunflower AB which complimented the colors of the leaves. I used the darker color of Topaz on the inside leaves and along the darker colors of the leaves and the Sunflower AB along the lighter. Following the veins in the leaves, place a drop of glue about the size of the rhinestone on a leaf and pick up a rhinestone with tweezers or a wax tipped tool. Gently press a rhinestone into the glue drop. When using E6000, I like to squeeze a bit over a paper plate and use a toothpick to scrape up a bit of glue and apply it.
Continue gluing and then let dry flat for 24 hours. Place a pillar candle in the middle and your centerpiece is finished.
Super easy and yet strikingly beautiful! This center piece will have any table ready for fall!
