DIY Centerpiece For Fall

Hello, party people! We made it to another Friday (thank heavens). Yesterday was the first day of Fall, officially, and I could NOT have been more stoked. One of the things I was looking forward to most this season was decorating my little apartment! I grew up watching my mom decorating our home with beautiful fall decorations and honestly, I was so spoiled. Our home was always beautiful, always put together. I want to do that for my husband and our future family! I wanted to show you the pretty DIY table decoration I made (and also: it cost less than $10). SO. Let’s do this.

DIY Centerpiece For Fall

Easy DIY fall table decoration


  1. 1 glass vase 
  2. 5 little baby gourds
  3. 1 large plate
  4. brown burlap ribbon

Easy DIY fall table decoration

So I already had the burlap ribbon and the large plate (but I am sure they don’t cost that much at a craft store). I bought the glass vase for 3.50 and the little baby gourds for $2.97. So cheap but so cute!

Arguably the most important part of this little centerpiece is the bow on the front! I thought that a regular bow would be too small, so I got fancy and did a bigger one! It is super easy to achieve this look! All you have to do is cut a piece of ribbon long enough to tie a bow (it’ll just be like a free bow, don’t tie it to the vase yet). Then, cut another piece of ribbon long enough to go around the vase. Tie it one around the vase, then put the free bow right in the center of the first tie you made. Next, tie a bow around the free bow you placed in the middle. Fluff out the ribbon pieces and angle it the way you think looks best! So easy, and looks way more complicated than it actually is. ๐Ÿ™‚

Now that your vase is done, choose the three smallest gourds you have and arrange them inside the vase. With the last few, arrange them outside the vase, on the plate! It would be perfect on a coffee table! I don’t have one of those, so I have mine on the end of my kitchen table. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hopefully you liked this post and little tutorial and are able to DIY some fun fall decorations for yourself this year! What are some of your favorite ways to decoration for the season? I think I am going to attempt a wreath next!


I love this amazing time of year — and halloween is JUST around the corner. I AM SO EXCITED. You guys aren’t going to believe what I have in store! ALSO: I designed some really cute fall printables for all of you! Just click the link to view and download whichever one you want ๐Ÿ™‚ They are perfect to stick in a little frame and place on an end table!


Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you learned something new today ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Fall, Y’all.

    I love taking simple items that you have in the house and dressing them up for the season. Your simple centerpieces are gorgeous.

  2. Adriana Renee | 23rd Sep 16

    I love this! I feel like I always see similar fall DIYs but this was such a cute, different take on fall! I also now want candy corn lol

  3. Trish | 23rd Sep 16

    What a lovely centerpiece! It looks easy to assemble, but it is so elegant … and of course, so autumnal too!

  4. Kusum | 23rd Sep 16

    That is such a cute centerpiece, really like how simple it is to make and it definitely screams Fall. Isn’t this just the most beautiful season ever, Happy Fall to you!

    I love your candy corn pieces! I don’t like to eat candy corn but it’s so pretty!! If I didn’t have to clear it off every night my table would be covered in beautiful pumpkins and gourds!!

  7. Falon | 23rd Sep 16

    Love the centerpiece, so cute and easy! I also love the candy corn in bowls on the wood board (although I would eat all the candy corn)!

    • Taylor Mobley | 23rd Sep 16

      Don’t worry Falon…between my husband and I, It is all gone! LOL

  8. Elizabeth Johnson | 23rd Sep 16

    I love that! Very simple and easy to put together! And inexpensive. Thanks for sharing!

  9. KP | 23rd Sep 16

    This is such a cute and simple centerpiece. My dining room table is really small but I think I could make something like this that would go perfectly on it! The bow does really make it so beautiful. I have zero bow tying skills – I’ll have to practice lots ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Kristin Cook | 24th Sep 16

    How cute! I almost bought some tiny pumpkins at the store last night, but I decided to wait until the pumpkin patch is ready!
    Fall is just the best!

  11. Ivonne | 24th Sep 16

    Simply but very elegant touch to any table.

  12. thesocialbeing721 | 24th Sep 16

    Simple and beautiful! Funny, I was going to buy some of these at Trader Joe’s the other day and passed. I will have to go back ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Lizzy | 24th Sep 16

    Such a cute idea! I love decorating for the seasons.

  14. Lindsey | 24th Sep 16

    Such simple, fun and inexpensive ways to decorate! Love them.

  15. Amanda | 24th Sep 16

    Beautiful, I’m not crafty at all but I think I could do this. Thanks for the printables!

  16. Cricket | 24th Sep 16

    Love the squash idea, I’d eat the candy so that’d be a bad one for me!

  17. Toughcookiemommy | 24th Sep 16

    This centerpiece is so pretty and it is perfect for Fall. I think it would also look great on our Thanksgiving table this year. My sister will be hosting and I’m sure she would appreciate the gesture if I made this for her home.

    • Taylor Mobley | 25th Sep 16

      I hope you do! Let me know what you think ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Kim | 24th Sep 16

    I love the centerpiece idea, colors of fall are so comforting and warm and welcoming. Beautifully done burlap bow, bows are always a challenge for me! I do also love the contrast of the bright candy corns against the white… well thought out!

  19. Kari (Happy Coconuts Travel Blog) | 24th Sep 16

    Such a cute idea! Although I’m not ready for summer weather to end…

  20. Nellwyn | 24th Sep 16

    This is a perfect centrepiece for Thanksgiving, I love how simple it is

  21. katrina | 24th Sep 16

  22. Karen Coghlan | 25th Sep 16

    I like it, very fall like… pretty too.

  23. Kiara | 25th Sep 16

    I love how simple yet feative this centerpiece is! On my kitchen table, we kept things simple with a basket of fresh apples and some gourds!

    • Taylor Mobley | 25th Sep 16

      Thank you so much!!!! I love bowls of fruit ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. heidi | 25th Sep 16

    Looks really cute and festive. A centerpiece really dresses up a table. I would never be able to have Candy Corn displayed without eating it.

    • Taylor Mobley | 25th Sep 16

      We ate all of it already, don’t worry! ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Ruxandra | 25th Sep 16

    This is perfect for Fall, not only Halloween!

    I love how simple items put together with some creativity can really transform into something beautiful! I love your decor ideas and definitely will be headed to the $ stores to see what I can find for the fall season!

    • Taylor Mobley | 25th Sep 16

      It is the perfect place for cheap decorations !

  29. Reuven | 25th Sep 16

    Edible centerpieces are our family’s favorite. Of course, my wife and I like the one’s with fruits and veggies we can cook later while our young teen men still favor the ones with nosh. Go figure! The centerpieces you’ve featured here are great because they’re simple to put together yet so attractive. Thanks for sharing.

  30. Amber Myers | 25th Sep 16

    I love this! I can so do this. I love easy ๐Ÿ˜‰

  31. Andrea | 25th Sep 16

    I just love the added color that the candy corn gives. It’s the perfect touch and sweet treat! Thanks for sharing!

  32. Kim | 25th Sep 16

    The baby gourds would be great for Thanksgiving! I don’t think I could handle the temptation of candy corn. But both are so festive!

    • Taylor Mobley | 25th Sep 16

      Don’t worry Kim… we ate all the candy corn already!

  33. Rebecca | 25th Sep 16

    Such cute centerpieces! The gourds are a great idea. I love fall and all the sights, smells, tastes, and decorations that go with it. Thank you for sharing!

  34. Emilee | 25th Sep 16

    This is SOO cute! Pinning!

  35. Sheila Jo | 25th Sep 16

    Cute centerpiece and I like that you can use some items most people have at home and just purchase a few gourds and maybe some ribbon. This would look nice with little pumpkins, too!

  36. Leslie | 25th Sep 16

    Super cute fall decor!

  37. Karina Pacheco | 25th Sep 16

    The one thing I specifically asked for last year for Christmas was pretty candy dishes for CANDY CORN! It is the ONE candy that I love to have sitting out during this season.
