Our outdoor patio table could use a small centerpiece to welcome fall. I did one for our breakfast table, Fall Centerpiece so I thought why not for the patio table. But it needed to be small. Taking inventory of what I had leftover from the Fall Centerpiece and gathering what I did not use from last year’s Fall Harvest, this little turkey candle holder was the perfect size. It holds a 3 1/2″ pillar candle. It is only 5″ tall and 4″ wide. Cute little baby Turkey. Using oasis foam, a hot glue gun, floral pins and silk florals and stems, I tried to make baby Turkey proud despite his size …… But where are the feathers? I didn’t have any, not one feather. So I opted to give him a crown instead of feathers. The crown is a rhinestone snowflake applique from TotallyDazzled.com 🙂
When I placed him on the table I had no room left for our place settings and such.
(I thought I was going for small).
So I moved him to another small table right outside the patio doors. He looked rather cute there.After dinner I placed him back on the table where I found a taller candle holder to act as a pedestal.
Gathered a few more stems to make a swag to fill in the space. I had to include at lease one tropical flower, an Anthurium.
Now that dinner is over he has the center of the table and sits quite proud on his pedestal. A turkey with no feathers. hmmm…. He doesn’t seem to mind. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your week-end!
