Thanksgiving Centerpieces With Upcycled Finds

Today's centerpieces are brought to you by secondhand shopping.

For the first one, I put coffee beans, popcorn kernels, and pinto beans into the bottom of three jars.
Then I placed a tealight candle in them.
I put them on a silver tray with a few artificial leaves.
Easy, but cute, huh?

Each jar has a little trim around the mouth-some twine and tulle.

These decorative branches came from my backyard.
I set the branches in the vase, then dropped artificial leaves to cover up the bottom.

I think this could be used for a thankful tree. 
All it would take it to have family members write on tags and then attach the tags
 to the branches with clothespins.

Tip: I found that the branches wanted to lean all over the place, so I tied them together
 with a piece of twine before placing them into the jar.

For this arrangement, I placed a pumpkin and some leaves in the top of a trophy.

I can't decide if it's cute or corny. :)

You don't have to spend lots of money to have cute centerpieces. 

For all these projects, I used
a large vase,
3 small jars,
a trophy, and a silver tray.
All were purchased secondhand.

I also used artificial leaves and a small decorative pumpkin
both of which were purchased at a dollar store.

Easy. . . and cheap!

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Give to everyone who asks of you.
