Here is the expensive Pottery Barn version... uh yeah, beautiful!
Here is my version!
- One small bag of raffia
- Five ivory candles. I just used what I had around the house. It's more creative if they aren't all the same.
- Clear glass blocks. I used these to elevate pumpkins and create levels. You can also use books. Just take off the paper cover, they add a nice touch.
- Ten pumpkins. All shapes and sizes. It's not necessary to have this many.
As you can see, I did not paint every single pumpkin. I did that on purpose. I felt like, if all the pumpkins were in silver/mercury it would be too much.
The candle stick holders were in various places around my house. I decided to pull them for the season and incorporate them into the centerpiece. I wish I had a giant hurricane for the center but I don't, so I just used what I had.
There you have it folks! I'm lovin' the mercury glass idea. Definitely will be trying it on a few other projects... possibly for Christmas :)
