Fall Candle Centerpiece

Fall has officially arrived in our house. I refuse to let the 102 weather ruin my enthusiasm for my favorite crafting, baking, decorating season. I’m still compiling plates and frames for my Halloween display but I hope to be done with it next week. I’m SO excited to see how it’s coming together. I found some adorable Halloween plates at Target along with a million other things. Seriously, I think Target is out to get me..or my wallet at least. I can’t seem to walk out of there without something to craft/decorate with every time I go..which of course is way too often. But before we jump into Halloween decor let me introduce you to my new Fall candle centerpiece.

Do you remember the unfinished wood tray I used for desserts at my sons Safari birthday party? With a little stain I transformed it into a beautiful fall centerpiece.

Here’s what I used to create the candle centerpiece:

wood tray from Hobby Lobby

Rustoleum dark walnut stain

Candle vases from the Dollar Store

Berry picks and garland


I applied one coat of stain and let it dry overnight. I arranged the vases and wrapped the berry garland around the vases. I also took apart a pick and used it to fill any open spaces. Then came the hard part…figuring out where to place it! I can’t decide between a corner in my entry way or on my living room console table.

Have you started decorating for Fall?
