Sprucing up your table doesn’t have to be time consuming or expensive. Here are 3 outrageously easy fall centerpieces to help simplify your fall decorating.
Temperatures are dropping, school is in full swing, and the calendar says that it is officially fall. This conjures up images of backyard campfires, s’mores, and colorful leaves on the trees for me. I love all of the change that fall brings, and it is so easy to get into the fall spirit and find inspiration everywhere you look.
It can also be a harried and overwhelming season with the holidays fast approaching. Time and money may be stretched thin during the fall, which is why I wanted to provide some easy fall decor inspiration.
Easy Fall Centerpieces
Putting a lovely centerpiece together for your table doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive, as I’ll show you in this post.
One of the easiest ways to create new decor is by shopping your own home. It’s likely that you have plenty of items laying around that you could put together to create something new.
I shopped my home entirely for these three fall centerpieces and didn’t spend a dime. I used a simple base, a long wooden box that my dad and I built last year, and then I filled it with various items that I already had laying around my house.

#1 – Greenery and Pumpkins
This was the fastest centerpiece of the bunch to put together. It literally took about 60 seconds to create.
I started with my long, homemade box, 2 hanging greenery bushes, and some cloth pumpkins. The greenery bushes came from the spring clearance at Michael’s, and the cloth pumpkins came from the dollar section of Target a couple of years ago.
I draped one of the bushes inside the box, tucking the stem down underneath. Then, draped the other one in the same manner going the other direction.
After draping both stems, I simply laid the pumpkins on top, and that was that. Seriously, so easy. You could also use real, mini pumpkins for this centerpiece. They are easy to find at the grocery store and inexpensive, as well.
#2 – Fall Flowers and Pinecones
I absolutely love the colors and all of the texture in this one!
Once again, I started with my wooden box base. I grabbed a few fall floral picks from around my house that complimented each other color-wise, some pine cones for texture, (I actually have a stash of pinecones at my house that I like to use for decorating and/or crafting), and a box of filler that I picked up on clearance for some color contrast.
First, I evenly distributed the flower picks throughout the box. You may have to bend the ends of the stems a bit to get them to the proper height.
Then, I filled in most of the empty space with pinecones, adjusting the flowers as needed.
Finally, I added the red and white filler pieces at random.
This gorgeous arrangement took about 3-4 minutes to put together.
#3 – Glass Bottles and Branches
The final centerpiece I put together is a great option if you want a little more height on your table.
I have actually been using this centerpiece on my dining room table for the past few months, except I had spring flowers and greenery in the bottles.
I had a few long fall stems that I wasn’t using anywhere else in my house this year. After removing the spring stems from the bottles, I simply clipped a few shorter pieces from the fall stems that would fit inside the small bottles and messed with the arrangement until it looked right. (Super technical here, folks.)
You could easily use real branches and stems from your yard or garden for this! Don’t be afraid to get creative and try things out.
This one took about 10 minutes to put together, due to the trimming and rearranging. But I think 10 minutes still qualifies it for an easy DIY decor piece.
So, what do you think of these easy fall centerpieces? Which one was your favorite?
