Did you see how I dressed up tin cans by adding twigs? Well, Now I’m ready to share what I did with those tin cans!
Ideas for Friendsgiving Dining Table Centerpiece is a combination of DIY and Vintage pieces pulled together for a unique table arrangement. I used Twig Tin Cans and DIY Leaf Stems combined with a wooden slab, faux gourds, and vintage amber bottles to create this Friendsgiving idea.
I can’t wait for you to see the results.
Friendsgiving Blog Hop
You are in for a treat today because I’m joining some friends for a Friendsgiving Centerpiece Tablescape Blog Hop hosted by Jen at Midwest Life and Style and Aliya at Open Doors Open Hearts. If you are joining me from Simply 2 Moms, welcome. Wasn’t Anne and AnnMarie’s vintage tablescape wonderful?
DIY Ideas for Friendsgiving Centerpiece
First, I created a few faux leaf stems using the same technique that I used for the Leaf Garland. You will notice I used a fabric floral tie and smaller craft paper leaves, however the technique is the same and you can see that tutorial here.
I wanted rustic and unique containers for the centerpiece so I covered recycled tin cans with foraged twigs! You can see how to easily cover and recycle tin cans here!

arrange Dining Table Centerpiece
My idea for this Friendsgiving centerpiece is a rustic design with a wooden slab as the anchor.
To start, place your wooden slab on the table and begin building your dining table centerpiece by adding a pinecone stem to the large Twig Tin Can.
Next, twist 3 – 4 of your craft paper leaf stems along the pinecone stem. Also add one stem to the inside of the tin can to hold the pinecone stem in position and to fill in the base of the arrangement.
Then, add a smaller twig can and amber bottle to the wooden slab.
In addition, fill these two containers with raffia corn stalks and gathered pinecones.

To make the corn stalks, I used a twig, raffia and foraged pinecones.
Begin by twisting the end of the raffia around a twig and wrap with a floral tie at the base. Add hot glue to secure the faux corn stalks and attach small pinecones to the twig, if desired.
Finally, add a few faux gourds around the base of the containers to complete the centerpiece.
I snipped a couple sprigs of berries from another arrangement to add a touch of color to the table centerpiece.
TaDa, that’s it! Such a simple and easy arrangement!
The neutral colors are going to be perfect for our upcoming Thanksgiving Supper Club Dining Table.
Even Grace looks over the dining table centerpiece with approval.
I began to play around with the tablescape by adding amber glassware to compliment the centerpiece.
One of my favorite ways to decorate is to use handmade, DIY items to create unique centerpieces and other home decor items.
I hope you enjoyed these projects and I can’t wait to share the finished tablescape in a few weeks.
