Fall Centerpiece Using Fruit Cocktail Cans

Fall Centerpiece Using Fruit Cocktail Cans

As I watch others post their fall projects and talk about cooler weather, it is hard to think about fall when the weather is still so warm here in southern Florida. We may cool off to the upper eighties tomorrow. lol!
This post is about creating the vases for this "fall" centerpiece.

As I was searching for some fabric for another project, I came across some scrap pieces.  Now I don't know about you, but I have a hard time throwing any scraps away. You never know what might inspire you and you would need them. 

I was looking at some burlap scraps as I was walking to the kitchen, (my attentions drifts sometimes) and I noticed some cans that needed to go into the recycle bin. They were fruit cocktail cans with pull tabs so the tops were smooth and nice. 

The burlap scraps were just the right size. Hummm! A possible fall project?

Well, maybe not quite fall but add with some sunflowers and it looks more like fall. For these burlap vases, I used a cleaned can and an old vase that I could not get cleaned, so cover it up.

I folded over an edge at both the top and the bottom of the material and then using a glue gun, attached them to the can. I over lapped the material in the back and glued it. 
Since this had a pattern near the bottom, I added some jute at the top. 


On the second one,  the fabric had a pattern all over it so I placed the jute a little down from the top.

It is amazing what some fabric scraps can do for an old can . You could do this with other fabric - Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas - you get the idea.

Now what to put into those vases. Not much blooming in the yard. My Mussaenda and grasses were blooming , so that is what I used. Still needed something for fall - sunflower napkin holders.

This green scale added some height. Love these old scales.

This fall runner was a little short for my table, but gave it some color.

  2. That is a great idea! I love the burlap fabric, and the jute adds that extra touch. Cans are so practical - I am going to start saving them.
