Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece

I had to make some centerpieces for a small dinner last weekend and this is what I came up with.  I thought that they looked festive without too much work!

I found this black fabric with gold glitter in the design, so I thought that I could just use the gourds and pumpkins leftover from Halloween. I used the gold Krylon Glitter Blast spray paint to paint them and then just simply tied ribbons and tulle on them.  For the jars, I filled them up with black beans and put a battery votive candle down in the beans.  Then I tied the jars with a pretty metallic gold ribbon…

And  I think that they turned out pretty cute with out a lot of time or money!  You could also put popcorn kernels, candy, rice, or just about anything in the jars to make your candles.  I think I will have to use this idea again for Christmas, with red and green candies in the jar!

 Do you have any fun, easy ways to decorate your tables?  I would love to hear from you!
