Harvest Candle Centerpiece

 Budget Decor.  During late Spring while at the craft store, we happened upon some really great clearance deals and stocked up for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday decorating. When you are able to do that it makes crafting so much more enjoyable and less stressful on the pocket book. Today we would like to show you that even on a tight budget, you can inexpensively freshen up some of your seasonal decor and add in a few new items.

We purchased three neutral colored, great smelling pillar candles in varying heights for no more than $1.49. Normally $3.99 and up. The mosaic tile pieces were purchased for 99 cents, regularly over $5.00. We already had the burlap which we have originally came from the thrift store and have slowly been crafting away at it over the last several months.

We cut our burlap to fit around our candles and secured the tile piece to the burlap with some hot glue. Next we secured the candle wrap on the candle with a few dabs of hot glue.

This is the finished candle. Be sure and always cut down your wicks on your new candles before burning so they will burn evenly.

We intermingled our new candles in with some of last years Harvest pumpkins, gourds and corn. The tray is an old thrift store find from several years ago that we spray painted gold back than. It has the rustic, used look to it so we decided to leave it as is this year.

We glittered up a few  pumpkins last yea just by painting on some Mod Podge and adding on the glitter. No reason not to use them again this year in a different type arrangement.

  We also added a little sparkle to some old Indian corn last year also. Works fine for us now too!

We hope we have given you some decorating ideas for this beautiful time of year. Ones that will make decorating easy and stress free, and make a beautiful impression. Remember, keep it Homespun!
