Fall Centerpiece - DIY

Okay guys, it doesn't get much easier than this. If you want a snazzy Fall centerpiece for around $10 and want to say you did it yourself- keep reading! Everything about this project I bought at the dollar store, with the exception of the spray paint and glue (Walmart).

Here's what you need:
Spray paint (I used Gold) $2.50
A small package of faux leaves $1
Potpourri $1
Candle $1
1 Dinner plate $1
1 Martini glass $1
1 Bowl $1
Glass glue $3 ( I also hear super glue works, but I have yet to try it out)

Wash and dry your dishes. Apply glue to the top of the martini glass along the rim. Place this upside down in the center of the topside of the dinner plate. Give this a few minutes to dry before applying glue to the bottom edge of the martini glass and centering the bottom of the bowl on top. Let this site for about 30 minutes before spray painting your color in a well ventilated area. Spray your second coat about 30 minutes later. Flip it upside down to get the bottom, as well. Again, wait 30 minutes to allow for dry time. (Here you have the option to spray a layer of clear gloss, but it's not necessary.)

Now just add your faux leaves to the bottom dish and your potpourri and candle to the bowl on top and you're finished. Easy-peasy! Put it on display at the dinner table or coffee table for that warm Autumn touch and admire a job well done. :)
