Total Cost – $3.00

Fall Decorative Vases

What you will need: 2 tall glass vases, 2 different colors of burlap ribbon, 2 stalks of fake leaves, 4 bags of candy corn

  1. Measure the burlap ribbon around the glasses vases and cut to size. My ribbon was a little wide so I cut it in half so I could fit 3 levels of burlap. Adjust the ribbon to the size of the vases you buy.

2. To attach the burlap ribbon, you can either use a hot glue gun or just pull the ribbon tight and used some clear tape. The clear tape actually worked well and there was no mess.

3. Add the bags of candy corn or small white beads from Dollar Tree would work great, too.

4. Add in your stalk of fake leaves. Adjust the stems until you get the look you want. When the leaves turn colors in your yard, you could use a small branch from home, too.

I added these vases with my pumpkin centerpiece and it looks great.

Then place a cute Fall, Halloween or Thanksgiving sign in front of the vase and your Fall table decorations are set. It's a cheap an simple fall décor idea any one can create.

Make a quick fall table display by adding small fake pumpkins to a vase. Add the pumpkins to a few vases to make a display and then add one of the fall signs in front to finish it off.

A quick and easy display you can throw together every year.

I do this with my dollar tree Christmas decorations too. Just add Christmas ornaments instead of pumpkins to your vase.
