DIY Fall Centerpiece
I am working with our local Anders Ruff Workshop here in Tulsa to do a floral class this December. We are going to be doing a holiday theme, but I wanted to practice in their box to get a good gauge of how many flowers to order. But since Christmas greens aren’t yet available, I tried out their box to create a DIY Fall Centerpiece.
Fall Centerpiece Supplies
- Wood container – this one was from AR Workshop
- A container that fits inside. I used a rectangular disposable one from the dollar store
- One brick of wet floral foam
- 4 stems of leather leaf
- 6 orange gerber daisies
- 6 red roses
- 4 stems of purple stock
- 5 stems of sunflowers
- Tree leaves cut for color
- Seasonal fruit – in this case I used oranges, apples and faux pumpkins
- Bamboo skewers
This was super easy to put together and I have a video below to give you a visual of how to create something similar.
HOw to Arrange Your DIY Fall Centerpiece
1- Start with adding the wet foam and plastic liner into the container. The foam needs to be sticking up about one inch out of the larger container so that you can easily add the flowers.
2- Begin greening the container with the leather leaf.
3. Next start adding flowers from largest to smallest. In this case I started with the orange gerber daisies and spread them out throughout the container. I next added the red roses and filled in between the daisies. Then added in the stock hanging out for dimension and lastly, added the sunflowers in any holes.
4- I added in the fall leaves from my hard for some extra color. I looked for holes in the arrangement and just inserted them into the foam.
5- My last step was to add in the fruit. I just took a bamboo skewer and punctured the fruit with it and then inserted it into the arrangement to add more color and to be reminiscent of a cornucopia!
This was done for around $35 and is beautiful in my kitchen!
