Fall Centerpiece

Shonee from Hawthorne and Main

I am so excited to be participating in Whatever Dee Dee Wants give thanks series.  You guys are seriously in for some amazing inspiration.  Since we are well into the fall season I came up with a super simple DIY fall centerpiece. 

If you have been following my blog you may remember way back in July I posted a DIY Patriotic Centerpiece over here, using moss.  I am a girl who likes to re-purpose and re-use.  Plus, I am really loving moss right now so I thought that it would be a prefect match.  I found this chicken wire basket at Walmart for $5.  It was located in the crafting area.  I also picked up some fake sunflowers from my local Joanns. You can see where I used some of these same sunflowers for my fall mantel here.

To start, I added a piece of burlap that I had left over from a different project.  I used it to line the basket.  If you are using a basket that doesn't have as big of holes as the chicken wire you might be ok to not use the burlap.  I originally didn't have the burlap in there and it was a big ol' mess.  Actually though, I really like the look of the burlap now that it's done. 

Next, I grabbed my moss and just plopped it into the basket.  This stuff really just looks so awesome doesn't it!!

To separate each of the flowers I bent them back and forth until the wire broke.  I broke mine off at the bottom right before they all join together.

After that I just stuck them right into the moss.  I love the color combinations of the yellow, browns and oranges.
