This month is Thanksgiving and that means we are in full craft mode through the end of year. We love making things together as a family and this year we are tasked with Thanksgiving decor for the cabin that we rent each year. This DIY Floral and Fabric Thanksgiving Centerpiece is just adorable and can be used no matter what the season.

  1. Paint your sticks with paint. I had 8 sticks and painted two in each color. Let dry completely.
  2. Cut each piece of fabric into 2, 22″ squares. (This was determined by measuring the vase: 7.5 + 3.5 + 7.5 = 18.5. Then add about 2″ on each side for the overhang. If you have a different size vase, you’ll have to measure accordingly)
  3. Iron your fabric to remove creases. Place fabric, wrong side together, and fold over 1″ edge all the way around of each piece. Use hot glue to affix the pieces together.
  4. Place the vase in the center of the fabric and flip over the vase and the fabric. Place a rubber band around the fabric and vase to hold it in place, positioning the rubber band as close to the top of the vase as possible.
  5. Flip the vase over (upright) and cut two pieces of ribbon 48″ in length. Lay the pieces on top of each other. Tie around the top of the fabric, covering the rubber band.
  6. Fill the vase with uncooked rice or popcorn. Place the silk flowers into the vase and add the painted sticks. I find it helps to leave the flowers as-is, but to spread them apart from the bunch.

    Painting the sticks adds such a rustic but colorful addition to the center piece, that can be used for many arrangements in the future. The paint also allows you to customize to your decor where ever you may be for the holidays. 

  23. This came out gorgeous! This would be such a great idea for a Fall or Thanksgiving center piece for the table.
