Rustic log candle fall centrepiece
Today’s post is brought to you by Thanksgiving in Canada, and a cat photo bomber.
My son wanted a nice dinner for our Thanksgiving, so I got all fancy-like, and picked up a ham, whipped up some homemade scalloped potatoes , applesauce, ambrosia, and a few other fun things.
But no Thanksgiving table is complete without a fall centrepiece of some sort! Wouldn’t you agree?

You may recognize this log candle base…
This started off as a Christmas log centrepiece. (click for tutorial here) I attached some cut down firewood to the base of a pizza pan, threw on a rusty old plant stand and added the fresh greens.
The addition of the cat was a nice perk of course! Skye loves to spec out whatever I make.
However let’s dress this up into an instant rustic log candle fall centrepiece instead!
Supplies I used:
- Log candles – find the original tutorial HERE
- Outdoor foliage – anything will do!
- A shutter for the base.
- Tall candles (real or faux candle votives could work too!)
- Start with one of the shutters I got from my neighbour as a base.
- Position candles in the center of the shutters (or your given base).
- One at a time, layer leaves, branches, pine cones… whatever you are using. Start with the largest leaves at the bottom, then keep adding layers and textures.
Pssst…. Sky, if you’re going to be in the picture, turn this way?
No? Well, then you’ll need to move. But only for a moment, I promise.
Isn’t this rustic log candle fall centrepiece with candles lit the cutest? So natural looking!
And I must say, dinner was awesome! It’s been awhile since I cooked enough for an army of teen boys!
Much to my son’s delight, he claims his 3rd helping (which he couldn’t polish off) will be his breakfast tomorrow.
Fine by me!
And because Patty asked for more cat pictures yesterday…
