Autumn Woodland Centerpiece

I shared this tablescape in my last post and mentioned that I'd show you all how I put the centerpiece together.  


It is made from a wreath of twigs as the base.

 You can use one you already have, make one or layer it with various Fall grasses, berries, seed pods, pinecones, Pheasant feathers, etc.  Mine is made of natural and faux items.


I simply laid the wreath on the table and got out a cake stand that was approximately the same height as the wreath when laying flat, about 6-7"

Place the stand in the center of the wreath

I love these fakorns (bought at Walmart a couple of years ago) and put about a 2" covering of them around the stand so that it would not show.  You could use more pinecones, berries, etc. Walnuts still in the shell would be pretty too! 

In the center I placed one of these bark shaped pillar candles,


which even look like a cut tree from the top (you can buy them at Zest Candles).

This makes a completely easy and gorgeous centerpiece.


Now, light the candle,

and sit down to a nicely set table,
  
And enjoy a delicious meal with friends or family...or both.

 I'll be back in a couple of days with Day 3 of the Etsy documentary filming at my house.
