Thank you very much indeed! Thanksgiving Centrepiece under $10

Dead simple and under $10, this centrepiece is a Thanksgiving no-brainer. Insert a hook and add a ribbon and it’s wall decor. Say thank you twice!

Project time
30 minutes

Materials and Tools

  • Foam ball
  • Artificial mini pumpkins
  • Pinecones
  • Some brown acrylic paint
  • Glue gun
  • Low terracotta pot

Step by step
Paint your foam ball brown ( if you leave it unpainted, little glimpses of white will remain visible in your final project and it just does not look that nice so I highly recommend you paint the ball a dark colour (black would do too, but brown is better and will blend in with the colour scheme of the piece). If you plan to use this as a wall piece, insert a hook into your foam ball (any hook will do).

Lay out your materials and tools so you can work fast with the glue gun.

I recommend you create a ring first; alternating pumpkins and pine ones around the ball, creating one “ring”.

Then fill out the rest of the ball positioning pumpkins and pone cones tightly together.

When dry ( within minutes) position ball into the low terracotta pot and voila!

If you prefer to make a wall piece instead of a centrepiece, insert a hook onto your ball prior to gluing on your items and saw/cut off a part of the foam ball so it can lay flat against the wall (not shown in an image as I wanted to keep my ball for the table piece)
