Then I saw this centerpiece at Dollar Store Crafts with a combination of pumpkins, a tray, and some other little items.
I remembered that I already had some blue colored pumpkins from last year and went on a scavenger hunt around the house for some other items to go with them. Here's what I came up with:
The tray is actually a picture frame-I inserted white paper instead of the picture. I had the vase, candle holder, and clear marbles in a cabinet/in my craft supplies, so the only thing missing was a branch. Strangely enough, the day before we had some pretty harsh wind that broke a huge tree branch from a tree in our back yard, so I cut off a piece of the branch and my dear husband spray painted it for me with some silver spray paint we already had. The whole project only took a little while and the only price was a little time. I'm enjoying it, and I think it goes well with my colors!
I hope you're inspired!
