I have an old tool caddy with 6 openings. By stuffing a few decorations here and there, it becomes a fall centerpiece for a long table. I used sphagnum moss as a filler, small pumpkins (real or artificial), 2 candles, 2 small antique oil lamps (you can replace these with more candles), berry picks, small artificial gourds, and artificial fall leaves. There is a trick that I’ll share with you for getting just the right height for items in your fall centerpiece.
When putting together, if something isn’t at the right height, just do what I do. I place a small can or jar underneath and cover with dried material and then set the item on top.
Keep adding and arranging until you like it. Stick in the fall leaves. Nothing in my arrangement is hot glued. I want to use it all again perhaps in a different arrangement and I don’t want glue on the wood or the materials. The sphagnum moss hides a lot! Just make sure the candles don’t touch it and never leaves candles burning without being around.
You’re done when you’re satisfied with the outcome!
On my table…….
Hope this inspires you to try an oblong centerpiece for your long table.
