Easy Centerpiece

Here's an easy Thanksgiving centerpiece. Purchase a solid (8-10)grapevine ball from your local crafts store, as well as silk fall leaves, mini pumpkins, acorns,and raffia. Hot glue with reckless abandon (but not reckless enough to burn yourself)!

You could also use your own real leaves and nuts. Just realize that your lovely creation will need doctoring up for next year if you do.

Too cute!

This is a cute idea. How do you keep the ball from rolling? I can picture my girls rolling this all over the table just amuse themselves.

Looks easy and way cute!

My ball has a flat bottom, it's more of a grapevine pumpkin. It doesn't roll; you may want to test yours out at the craft store.

I've never seen a grapevine ball before, though I'm sure Michael's would have one. So pretty and so simple!
