Looking for a creative AND inexpensive Thanksgiving table centerpiece?
Easily turn an ordinary flower pot into a cute pilgrim hat by gluing it upside down on top of a large round tray! Paint the whole thing black and add some festive embellishments like Fall leaves and mini pumpkins. The result is a CUTE decoration to display on your table at Thanksgiving!
Consider grabbing a plastic flower pot and round tray at your local dollar store!
Flower Pot Pilgrim Hat Thanksgiving Centerpiece
- 1 medium-sized flower pot (plastic or pottery)
- 1 large circular tray
- Epoxy glue (such as E6000)
- black paint (spray paint or craft paint)
- White craft paint
- foam paint brush
- Fall embellishments such as faux flowers, leaves, etc.
Directions: Glue the flower pot upside down in the middle of tray and let dry. Paint pot and tray with several coats of black paint and let dry. Paint a strip of white towards the bottom of flower pot. Glue on any Fall related embellishments near “rim” of hat.
These super cute felt flowers and wood leaves can be found in Target’s The One Spot, near the front of store. You can also alternatively use the faux leaves found at any dollar store or craft store.
I also wanted to note if you added some Christmas greenery and berries, this same idea can be applied to make a festive snow man hat Christmas centerpiece! So easy and fun. 😊
