{diy fall accent pieces}

My mom is a pretty crafty lady 
and she surprised me when she made these little pretty accent pieces for our Thanksgiving table.

She used:
A tea light holder
Artificial leaves (real dried ones would work too)
Sticks from the backyard (gathered by bored children)

OK. What she really surprised me with was the rice.
I would have never thought of using that!
Would you?

They seriously took three minutes each... including pausing for chatter and laughter.

1. Fill the tea light holder with rice
2. Arrange leaves as desired
3. Dig thin sticks in while letting them peek out above the leaves

They were so simple but added a perfect touch of fall.

I'm going to be trying these out with poinsettias for the Christmas table.  
Of course I'll post about how they go!
