Fall/Halloween Pumpkin Box Centerpiece

Fall Halloween wood pumpkin box centerpiece

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year.  On September 1st the box of fall decorations comes out of storage no matter what the temperature!  This year I added Walnut Hollow’s Pumpkin Box to my decor.

SUPPLIES:

INSTRUCTIONS:

1.  First, stain the box.  Thin the stain with water if needed.  Wipe off excess with a rag.  Allow time to dry.

Here’s the stained box.  Looks good but I wanted to add a little more detail.

2.  Nail tacks along two edges.  Leave a little space on the top two nails to tie a garland if desired.

I attached a SPOOKY vintage card garland for my Halloween display.

For September it’s sitting on our coffee table filled with books, apples, leaves, and a few stalks of wheat.

There are so many other ways to use this box!  I plan to fill it with mini pumpkins for Thanksgiving and then use it as a paint caddy until next fall.

Leave a comment and let me know what you’d fill the box with.
