This is one of the easiest DIY. Why?
All you need to do is add a seasonal pick. You can just leave it on the table and add an inexpensive pumpkin pick. This grapevine pumpkin pick is from Hobby Lobby and is 40% off.
2. Dried or cut Flowers from your yard
This DIY idea for a fall centerpiece is very easy. I have my hydrangea drying out in an antique white ironstone pitcher. You can use a mason jar, vase or any pottery of choice. These dried hydrangea blooms makes lovely wreathes too.
You can read about How To Dry Hydrangeas. I give you my tips on how to do it.
Seasonal fruit are perfect for a centerpiece. I love to use what is on hand in my home.
In the Belgium crate, an antique wire basket holds some cloth napkins with beaded pumpkin napkin rings. Lots of texture for the eyes.
A few burlap leaves to add even more texture to the centerpiece. A white ironstone soup tureen is perfect for holding apples or any seasonal fruits. I love to bring nature into the house to make it cozy.
4. Try Using A cloche
One of my favorite items to use in creating a centerpieces is a cloche. I use one all the time in my house. This one has a large glass dome.
It is perfect to hold a mercury glass pumpkin. I have a timer tea light inside with a few burlap leaves. A table runner in neutral color runs down the center of the table.
5. vintage Soup Tureen
Try using a vintage soup tureen by placing a plant in the tureen and tucked in a strand of wooden beads along with a pumpkin pick.
A table runner in a lovely sage color check. A couple of tea lights flank each side of the centerpiece and voila a beautiful tablescape.
6. dough bowl
What I love about a dough bowl is it can be filled with just about anything. Here rose gold fillers combine with some white pods works great. It can be placed on the center of the table with some tea lights.
I love versatile pieces like this one. You can can move it to the fireplace hearth, kitchen island or a coffee table.
Try filling it with real, faux or fabric pumpkins and even gourds!
Another favorite items to use in tablescapes is a lantern. It is the perfect item for a quick and easy centerpiece.
Above is a wooden open lantern that can hold a large candle or try using a vase with florals. Try pairing tea lights on each side. You could even put a pumpkin in the center of this open lantern.
For an enclosed lantern, you can fill it with small pumpkins.
8. Charcuterie Board
How about using a charcuterie board for a centerpiece? Here is one a centerpiece for my island that can be put in the center of a table too.
I always start with something tall like a vase or piece of pottery. You can use faux plants, flowers or berry branches. Next, I love to add a candle. Just fill in with decorative items and change out the black ceramic piece and heart for a velvet or real pumpkin. A small white Cinderella pumpkin would look beautiful here.
9. Other ideas
- Add fresh pumpkins and gourds in a crate or just stack in the center of the table.
- A glass hurricane with a flicker candle and fillers (leaves, dried corns, dried beans, rose hips, dried orange slices, dried natural Putka Pods (pumpkin pods).
- Add a runner to your table. Next add a faux garland or make your own garland with small tree branches, boxwood clippings and tuck 5 real or faux pumpkins in your garland.
- Use a round woven tray or platter, place a small plant, add a two or three wine glasses or goblets from a thrift store and add tea lights. I love to find ones that vary in height or color.
- Table runner with a long charcutier board with five or six tea lights.
Hope these 14 easy DIY fall centerpiece ideas got your creative juices flowing! The possibility for a fall centerpiece is endless.

Love all your ideas, Tammy! I’m all about the dried hydrangeas and fruit this season.
Kim, me too! I am working on drying some oranges and apples now for Christmas. Natural items are always the best and inexpensive too.
