A Fall Center Piece

It’s Fall.  Cooler weather in our part of Ontario and it’s Thanksgiving this weekend.

At the Creative Crafting group we created a Fall centre piece from an old plate, burlap, artificial leaves, pine cones, acorns and a gourd.

The photo below show it all together at the craft session but I didn’t get it all glued as I wanted to use the stronger glue gun I had at home.   So I took a picture of it, dismantled it and took it home to work on.  At first it was on a wicker plate with no bow or ribbon.  But it needed a finishing touch so I found a roll of burlap, about 15 cm or 6 inches wide, and decided would look nice under the wicker plate.

The idea originally was to have a candle in the center, but this neat gourd caught my eye and I used it in place of a candle.  This part isn’t glued in so it can be removed and replaced with a candle.

At home I replaced the wicker plate with an old china plate for more stability and with the glue gun added the burlap around the edge.  Every so often I put a tuck into the burlap.  The plate was heavier than the wicker and the glue stuck to it much better.

First the green leaves were glued around the plate edge.  When I went to add the pinecones I was worried that white would show through so I covered the center of the plate with burlap.

 Coloured leaves were added in between and on top of the green for the Fall look.  They only took a little dab of glue to fasten them.  Some of the biggest pinecones went on next.

A small candle holder was placed in the centre.  This wasn’t glued in and it would hold the gourd or candle.

A variety of pinecones, including bleached ones, acorns, and berries were added around.

I hope all my Canadian family and friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
