Make A Fall Centerpiece

I posted last week how I like to go foraging.... especially in the Fall.  I love to bring in my plunder and decorate with it.  You can make a Fall center piece quickly and easily by just foraging in your back yard, an empty lot, or out on a nature walk.  This centerpiece is made up of  wild sage, and some pretty red wild flowers which I don't know the name of, and  a few "picks" from Hobby Lobby that were on sale.  The Sunflowers are made of burlap, and fit in with my colors this year; I couldn't resist them at 40% off.  This is a very casual centerpiece but has a little elegance, I think.  It was very inexpensive to make, since I had the white tureen on hand and gathered all but a few of the components.  You can collect almost anything that looks pretty, spray it with a little cheap hairspray to keep the flowers intact and put it in a bowl, vase or urn.  You don't even need a glue gun.  When Fall is past, pull out the store bought picks and the rest can be recycled in the fireplace.

Do you like those little birds?  My friend Roxy gave them to me a couple of years ago.  I
love them.  They are my  sweet reminder of the verse: "Not one sparrow falls to the ground apart from your Father."  They remind me that He sees me, He knows me and even the very hairs on my head are numbered.... and so are yours.

Happy Decorating Everyone.

Matthew 10:29-31

 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.  And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

  1. Soooo lovely, Pam. What a beautiful Fall centrepiece .... unfortunately, we have nothing to 'forage' in our backyard, so I shall simply have to admire your delightful creations :)

    Oh, and I love your header ...

  2. I love this! You could make these to sell-- I really thought you had purchased the arrangement premade!

  3. Hello Pammie, You're so talented!!
    It makes me want to run through the praire, gathering tumbleweeds (NOT) So I guess I will have to by one. But just maybe if I get out soon to the side roads I still may be able to find some pretty dried flowes.
    So glad you love your little sparrows!
    Blessings, Roxy
