Fall Centerpiece out of Reclaimed Wood

September 6, 2013 by 20 Comments

Fall is my most favorite season to be creative.  The inspiration and ideas for projects just keep coming.  A couple of days ago, my sweet husband made me another tray out of the old weathered fence board we kept on hand after replacing part of our fence this past Spring.  He loves going out in the garage ( he wished he had a workshop out back) and using his saw and other woodworking equipment.  This is the tray he made for me.

Fence board boxThis tray or box measures 14 inches.  Simple lines, basic construction and I couldn’t wait to decorate the inside or fill it with some fall goodies. While he was building the tray, I created this.

fall wreathI went to my fall “stash” from last year and gathered items needed for this project.  Moss, berries, pods, and some succulents (all faux) I had lots of remnants on hand and was pleased how it all came together.

fall wreath 2Using my trusty glue-gun I glued the different elements to the wreath. The colors and different textures give this wreath a natural, woodsy look.

fall wreath 3Perfect size for the tray with plenty of room in the center to add other decor.

fall wreath 5I could’t help but dress it up a bit more, adding a candle on a silver dish in the center of the tray.  I can’t wait to bring this little jewel inside and dress up my dining room table for fall.

Thank you for visiting!
