Orange pumpkins, fall leaves, bright yellows and reds. The warm earthy colors of fall can be a fun way to decorate your home and it is often the go to for fall and Thanksgiving day home decor.

However, this year I wanted to change up my fall decor from last year and add a few velvet pumpkin decorations to my home. I used these beautiful and elegant pumpkins on my fireplace mantel.

Note: All of the materials I used for this centerpiece, except for the wreath and the green tablecloth, came from Dollar Tree. If you have one close by, that is a great place to go shopping for decor. However, the only way to buy most of these items online through Dollar Tree is bulk and since you probably don’t need 36 pumpkins, I have tried to link to different similar products I found online.

Place a white table runner on your dinning room or kitchen table. If you like the look, layer a smaller square table cloth over the top.

Clip small velvet pumpkins onto a green spring wreath. I purchased these small velvet pumpkin clips at the Dollar Tree. You can buy them in bulk online, or pick them up at a local store. Or use these cute mini velvet pumpkins and hot glue small clips like these on the back.

Place a clear goblet upside down in the center of the wreath and set a velvet pumpkin on top. I used a dark blue one.

Set 4 more pumpkins on the table, two on either side of the wreath.
