I love a good tablescape, don’t you? I love to look at all the pretty pictures on Pinterest of all those layers and layers sitting on a table but I need to keep it real in my home. We use our dining room table more than twice a year, so I don’t want to have to take apart a table to sit and eat a quick dinner. So I have created a simple Autumn centerpiece tablescape.
This post will be photo intense since I created a video on how to make the centerpiece and how to decorate a simple autumn centerpiece tablescape. No step by step, you just have to watch the video!
I love to use natural elements in my decor. All the pine cones in this bowl were free, yup I don’t pay for pine cones. I pick them up whenever and where ever. This year we went out to California to visit the oldest boys and I brought back 5 or 6 big pine cones from San Jose. I would have brought back more, but the luggage was full. I also was at a rest stop in South Carolina this summer and I was out picking up pine cones. Mr. DD could only shake his head at me as I was carrying them back to the car. Girls gotta do what she needs to do when it comes to FREE decor elements. Right, I know we are on the same page!

The “gather” wood sign above the mirror is also from World Market. I did change the color on it and you can read how I changed it from red to the brushed metal.
More inexpensive ways to for decor. A simple glass bowl filled with acorns, buckeyes, and small pine cones. A simple to make canning lid pumpkin. I have not done a tutorial on how to make them, but they are super easy. Use 16 to 20 canning lids, tie a string on the inside of the canning lids. You will want it to be very tight, so you might have to tie a few of them before you get it to the correct tightness. Hot glue in a cinnamon stick or stick and tie on some ribbon or raffia. Simple and inexpensive! The quote in the frame “Breathe in the Autumn air”; I designed and is “free” to print out for my blog subscribers. I also added the cute maple leaf printable that is in the display pine cone bowl.

Another great way to add shelving to any area is turning old drawers into repurposed shelving.
The person I bought this wood plaque from is no longer making wood signs. So, I did a little shopping for you and found a similar plaque.
Now for the video on how to make this Autumn centerpiece and tablescape. Make sure you follow me on YouTube as now I will be doing more home decor and DIY videos!
Do you decorate your table and if so do you layer or keep it simple?
