Fall is just about here on our homestead. The leaves are starting to change color and with it, much needed cooler temperatures! If you’ve followed me for some time, you know that Fall is basically my favorite season. Check out this guest post by Melissa at Bella Mae Design for this amazing and simple DIY Fall Tablescape.
Before we know it, Fall is officially here. The crisp cool air, pumpkin spice everything, and amazing scenic leaves. Along with the arrival of the best season ever, begins the season of holiday parties, dinners, and decorating.
DIY Fall Tablescape
We all want the best of the best when it comes to décor, but we may not always have a big budget for it.
Because let’s be honest hosting adds up quickly. This is where I come in with some fall holiday budget friendly décor.
My main focus is always a beautiful tablescape. A good budget friendly way to impress your guests is to make your own centerpiece. And I’m going to show you just how simple it is to do!
How to Make a Simple Fall Farmhouse Inspired Tablescape
I first started with fresh greens from a local grocery store to make my own fresh garland. I prefer to use fresh flat leaf eucalyptus because even when it dries out, it continues to hold its shape. It also smells amazing too.
I then sorted out my branches and made piles, the piles consisted of long stems to short stems, thick to thin.
Once I had everything lined up and prepped I laid out my two end pieces at the desired length of my table.
You can make this as long or as short as you desire. For my table, I used two packages of eucalyptus for a 4ft garland.
Once my end pieces were laid I went ahead and started wiring in my filling pieces until both ends met together. Once I had a good base I went back in and added a few more stems to make the garland fuller.
Then, I placed it on top of a homemade wooden tray stand to give it a more rustic farmhouse look.
The total cost for this project without added accessories was $8.
With accessories it was right around $15.
This DIY Fall tablescape is incredibly simple and budget friendly and shouldn’t take you more than 20 minutes to complete at home.
