Fall Crawl- DIY Centerpiece


Wow, there are only a few days until the official start of Fall.  We are blessed with beautiful Fall colors every year in North Carolina.

I am so honored to be a part of Marilyn's Fall Crawl with 9 other lovely blogging ladies! You can find all of their Fall creations over at the Fall Crawl link up. This is my very 1st feature in bloggy world; Yay!   It took me a while to figure out what I was going to do being the over analyzing procrastinator I am.  I have a great love of centerpieces, but have yet to create my own.




Fall Centerpiece:



Materials for Glitter Candle: 
Mod Podge Matte
Fall colored brownish/goldish/orangish fine glitter (on sale at Micheals for 1.99)
Artificial Fall leaves (picked up at AC Moore for .99)
Candle holder (Dollar Tree)
Candle holder Cylinder (Dollar Tree)
Glass Gems
Epoxy
Sandpaper(helps the Epoxy adhere better)

~Mix a some glitter with the Mod Podge and spread evenly on candles surface
~Sprinkle glitter around all sides(I put it on top of a cleaned out baby food jar to spread evenly along the bottom)
~Let dry
*Sandpaper slightly around the rim of the candle stick holder; clean off.
*Place Epoxy mix on surface and place glass cylinder on top; let dry.
*Epoxy gems around rim of candle stick for decoration.




Arrange artificial leaves around the bottom with corners facing up.
Place glittered Mod Podge pillar in the center.

Materials for Cinnamon Candle:

Spool of sheer purple ribbon( $1 @ Walmart)
1/2 pearl bead

~Measure up your cinnamon sticks to your pillar and cut.
~Place rubber band around the top of 3 in. pillar & arrange your cinnamon sticks around.
~Fold your sheer ribbon in 1/2 and tie into a pretty bow; attach 1/2 sticky pearl onto center.
