The Thanksgiving holiday has crept up on us again! And everyone is coming to our house for dinner. The menu is actually organized and down on paper. All that remains is the actual cooking and the perfect centerpiece for our bountiful Thanksgiving table. For instant fall flavor, I'll pull out my driftwood candelabra, scour the back yard for any usable foliage, berries, etc. I check the leftover Halloween items for any gourds, pumpkins, etc., that I may be able to spray paint and use in the centerpiece. With those items gathered, I make a run to the local crafts store to grab some candles and interesting filler items I can tuck into the empty spaces. Since pillar candles can be expensive, I decide to go with only 4 candles and put some of the small pumpkins on the pillar holders.
Watch this short video that shows us putting together this easy-to-make "updated cornucopia" centerpiece. It's so easy to turn this 7-candle candelabra made of reclaimed driftwood into an elegant centerpiece using a combination of natural and store-bought elements. It will be the highlight of the holiday table.
And it works for every holiday. Right after Thanksgiving, I'll take this apart and turn it into a centerpiece or mantelpiece for Christmas.
