This post will show you a Simple DIY Fall Foliage Centerpiece created from Clippings from Your Front Yard. This almost free Autumn Floral Arrangement would be great on any Thanksgiving Table.
Almost everyone I know, except possibly seasonal allergy sufferers, love a crisp, sweater grabbing walk on a perfect fall morning.
I mean, the color of the trees alone, will take your breath away.
Add in the most perfect fall blue sky, and bring on the whistling.
On what such beautiful day, I couldn’t resist clipping some of the earliest signs of fall color. I shared the flower arrangment on my Instagram, and everyone loved it. So, I knew my Blog Followers would love it as well.
Fall Foliage Found on My Walk
So, if you are among the unfortunate fall allergy sufferers, I’ve got you covered. Here are several DIY Centerpieces I’ve done that don’t require a hike in the wood

Here’s how I created the most gorgeous fall centerpiece that would work for your Thanksgiving Table, or any other fall dinner celebration from a nature walk.
1. Start with some cheap grocery store flowers.
If you only have time to make one grocery store stop looking for the perfect 4-6 flowers, make it Trader Jo’s! They never fail to have beautiful flowers for cheap.
However, Aldi’s roses are amazing as well, and even more affordable. But, I admit it is a hit or miss with them.
These amazing mauve colored roses tipped in fuchsia won the day! They were $3.99 for 1/2 dozen, so who could resist.

2. Add brightly colored fall leaves from a tree.
The ones I found on my walk were a bright red leaves from an Ash tree. I grabbed a couple of stems, being sure the stem was long enough to strip off several inches of leaves to immerse in the water.
3. Clip a small stem from a conifer tree.
Even at my ripe age, I can be awed on a nature walk! Some how, I’ve lived all these years never seeing, or noticing the bald cypress fruit.
This is not the kind of fruit you can eat. It is the fruit of the tree, and after these green spheres that resemble carved wood dry out, the seeds of the cypress tree are inside! They fruit is spectacularly beautiful, and the leaves are billowy and gorgeous as well.
4. Collect branches with berries.
There are lots of options for clipping a couple of branches from trees or bushes with berries. My trail is full of ash trees with wild berries. They too add such a striking beauty to a fall flower (and tree branch) arrangement.

Now, from a sink filled with branches from a beautiful fall day walk, to a gorgeous fall flower centerpiece.
And a tad closer look:
If you are a sucker for vintage brass vases, I’ve found a few. You can shop them by clicking near the bottom of the photo. Because they are vintage there is only one of each!
You can take this inspiration, and create your own Fall DIY Centerpiece. Who knows what will be blooming and colorful when you take your walk. I’m sure there will be an amazing show of nature for you.
