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!
Materials and Tools
- Foam ball
- Artificial mini pumpkins
- 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)
