Creating a pretty and inexpensive farmhouse centerpiece for fall can be as simple as giving thrift store finds new paint jobs and adding in a few decorative fall touches. Putting this together for Gloria’s farmhouse decor was quick, easy, and budget friendly.

I’m happy to again join the monthly Thrift Store Challenge group! Each month participants are challenged to:
- Upcycle an item(s) from a thrift store, resale store, or garage sale into a new piece of decor.
- There’s no monthly theme.
- There’s no budget to stick to.
Meet this month’s hosts!
Using lots of white and neutral color tones is something I enjoy doing for Gloria’s house.My house has lots of colors, but she uses white, gray, and neutrals to complement her farmhouse style. We’ll be sharing her fall tablescape soon, but today it’s all about the centerpiece.
Farmhouse Centerpiece for Fall Table Decor
I love finding inexpensive items at thrift stores that can be transformed into pretty decor pieces. Last month, I shared a basket and wood candle holders that got simple makeovers that I’m using for my casual fall centerpiece.
This month, I found just the right pieces for Gloria’s farmhouse style decor at my local Goodwill.
Supplies Used for Fall Farmhouse Centerpiece
- Thrift Store Find Wall Art
- Thrift Store Find Candle Holder
- Chalk Paint and Brushes
- Spray Chalk Paint
- Spray Polycrylic Protective Finish
- Faux Florals & Rattan Orbs
- White Pumpkins
- White Candles
- TSP Cleaner & Lint Free Cloth
This black table top candle holder was the first thing I spotted when I was thrifting for items to use for the centerpiece. It was less than $3.00, so it went into my cart.
After cleaning it with TSP, I used Kilz Spray Chalk Paint. I’ve mentioned before how much I like this paint. I’ve used it on several pieces including giving an old planter a new look and a flatware chest makeover.
I didn’t find a tray that was just the right size, but I did find this wall art that, when flipped over, works well as a tray. It got a base coat of ivory chalk paint. After that was dry, I gave it a second coat. Once that as also dry, I used the more of the Kilz Spray Chalk Paint.
What made the wall art piece just right was the size. I was glad that I found both pieces at the same time since I could place the candle holder inside the makeshift tray to make sure that it would fit. It was a perfect fit. I added white candles, a few white speckled faux pumpkins, some tips from a few floral stems, and a few acorns for a fall farmhouse look.
Before adding the candle holder to the tray, both were given two coats each of MinWax Polycrylic Protective Finish.
After placing it on Gloria’s table, I added in a few rattan vase filler balls. Not bad for a thrift store find! Keeping seasonal decor items budget friendly is always a goal and this project cost under ten dollars, including the new candles.
For a clean and fresh farmhouse look, this centerpiece is just right. It goes perfectly with the place settings that include white plates. I hope you’ll stop back by to see the completed farmhouse tablescape for fall.
