A dough bowl is the perfect container to use for a fall centerpiece. It’s sturdy wooden construction and time-worn look makes it my go-to vessel when I’m decorating with natural fall elements! Today I’m sharing an easy, no-fail way to style a fabulous centerpiece to last through Thanksgiving in a large dough bowl. I have a secret for filling a large bowl so it looks abundant and grand! Let’s do some fall dough bowl styling!
Let’s make this in just a few easy steps!
Get out your dough bowls! I have collected several over the years, but this one works nicely on my kitchen table! If you are looking for a dough bowl, see “get the look” at the bottom of this post. There are all kinds and price points. The “real” ones may be a bit expensive but they are well worth it! They are heirlooms!
I gathered together the fall things I thought I might want in my dough bowl… pumpkins, burlap balls, pinecones (lots of pinecones), willow balls, faux deer sheds, mini Indian corn and leaves made from old book pages.
I placed one large white faux pumpkin in the left side of the dough bowl and then filled the bottom of it up with “white pine” pine cones. I like to use these specific pine cones because they are long and thin and kinda connect together to make a very nice bed almost anything placed on them.
Just a single layer will do! This one step work like magic to make arrangements full looking! Easy-peasy, right?
Next, I added burlap balls. These are so easy to make. I keep a box of them on hand to use when I decorate. To see how to make burlap balls click HERE.
Now comes the white baby boo pumpkins! The first layer that is! I just nestled them in. Can you see this centerpiece coming together already?
Next layer, a couple willow balls.
More pumpkins and pine cones.
For this layer of pine cones I use spruce, scotch, redwood or douglas pine cones. I like to turn some upside down in the arrangement so the bottom of the pine cone shows.
The final touches are the deer sheds, acorn stems and book page leaves. How easy was that?
Here’s how it looks on my kitchen table…
