DIY Centerpieces for Your Dinner Room Table

While table centerpieces can be used all year long, they’re most useful during the holiday season when you’re hosting parties and fabulous feasts. But a beautiful centerpiece doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg; there are several easy-to-make variations at your fingertips. So, consider pulling out the scissors, grabbing the glue, and getting to work on one of the following:

Balloon Centerpiece

A balloon centerpiece might not always work for grownups, but it’s sure to be a hit at the kid’s table (assuming the children can resist the urge to stab the centerpiece with a fork). You can use yellow, orange, and brown balloons, sticking with the traditional colors of autumn, or try any color you want. This centerpiece is easy to throw together and even easier to clean up (see aforementioned fork).

Gratitude Jar

With the hustle and bustle and overwhelm of the holiday season, it can be hard to find moments of gratitude. A gratitude jar in the middle of your dining room table solves that, literally putting thankfulness front and center. This design is very easy to put together, requiring little more than a jar, a stapler, paper, string, and tape. You can download prewritten gratitudes to throw in the jar, but the experience may mean more if you encourage your guests to write their own.

Harvest Centerpiece

If you’re looking for a centerpiece that is both poignant and practical, consider harvesting this beauty. This centerpiece makes use of gourds galore and other fruits and vegetables to create a stunning visual that you can eat afterward. While you can use whatever produce you want, squash, eggplant, pumpkin, cauliflower, and other fall-friendly offerings tend to make the most impact.  

Sunflower Centerpiece

A sunflower centerpiece is a very simple way to make a statement. Coupling sunflowers with pussy willow branches, cat tails, twigs, and other things you can find in your front yard, this centerpiece adds color and vibrancy to your dining room. Use your love of the Dollar Store to customize it to your liking.

Greenery Centerpiece

Fall might not be as green as spring but there’s no reason your table can’t prove to be an exception. A greenery centerpiece embraces the calming zen of nature to foster an elegant, clean, and peaceful look. It makes use of olive branches, eucalyptus, and white and orange candles. 

DIY centerpieces give you a chance to show off your craft skills and your creativity; the sky (or rather the ceiling) is the limit. Find a style you like and channel your inner artist.
