Since moving to Connecticut, my absolute favorite store in the entire world to go to is Terrain. I don’t know how I didn’t know about this place before I moved, but now that I do and I live so close, I visit at least once a week.

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from Terrain with a gorgeous centerpiece that I knew I needed to recreate.  I’d never done something that looked as elaborate as this, but I figured I might as well give it a try.

My sister and I made the trip to Terrain last weekend and gathered all of our supplies to create this centerpiece that will be sure to make it feel like fall in our house!

Here’s how we did it:

Here’s what you’ll need: dried flowers of different shapes and sizes, moss, flower foam, wire cutters, rectangular container.

Gather dried flowers of all different shapes and sizes. I bought some from Terrain, some from Michaels Craft Store, and Home Goods. Here’s what we bought from Terrain: Cotton, Synthetic Succulent, Dried Celosia BunchPreserved Indian Paintbrush Bunch, Dried Lavender. (Sorry the cone-looking flowers and yellow flowers are not on the website.) Dried eucalyptus leaves and green moss from Michaels.

Place the green foam into the container and start placing the larger flowers first.

Use the wire cutters to cut flowers at different lengths.

Putting flowers at different heights adds dimensions to the centerpiece.

Use the flowers the cover more space towards the bottom of the centerpiece.

Once you use all of your flowers, use the moss to cover the flower foam.
