I like to take items I already have and change them up for fall. For this display, I used a tray (Southern Living at Home, I love you!) I already had:
I had the two larger candleholders, and purchased the three smaller ones for $1.50 each at Hobby Lobby. I placed them so the sizes were layered, and and filled in between with my go-to fall filler:
I fluffed it all just so and added my candles -- the large ones were $5 from HomeGoods, the smaller were $3.50 at Hobby Lobby:
This is my view while I blog tonight:
Our family room mantel has been warmed up as well. Last year I found some scrap wood, stained it and it serves as the perch for simple red and brown candles:
These candleholders are so fun to fill during the holidays. Funny how I can't figure out what to put in these things most of the year, but from now until early January, I'm golden:
I add my candles and then my "scatter" -- I love this stuff! This I found at Pier 1 years ago, and I think they still carry something similar:
Oh yeah, and a yummy candle. Glorious! Try taking items you already have -- add a candle and then some texture -- whether it be pumpkins, acorns, apples, leaves, whatever! (Just make sure they aren't near the flame! Yikes.)
Have I mentioned how much I love... ummm... OK, I'll shut it.
I'm off to eat a caramel apple covered in peanuts, that should shut me up. Next up this week, my dining room centerpiece!
