I made this fall centerpiece a few weeks ago when the weather was still warm. I decided not to add traditional fall colors in the dining room the way I usually do each fall. Our summer just blew past so quickly and of course, our leaves are still green on the trees so I decided to go with a lighter touch.
I used this pine box that I picked up at a friend’s garage sale to create my centerpiece. It has such beautiful graining that I would never think about painting it. Its narrow width is perfect for our table.
To get started, I placed two foam rectangles in the bottom of the box and then looked around for some candles that would sit down in the box. I settled on a mix of one real candle and 2 electric ones.
