Other items you can make for your table scape: leaf covered chargers and acorn napkin rings.
To Make the Acorn Napkin ring: Drill small hole through middle section of tiny acorn then run elastic thin cording in the small opening to connect, form a circle and tie off with a small knot. Don’t be surprised if the head of the acorn pops off, no worries, just hot glue back in place. I found my acorns in my yard but you can purchase online or go to craft store.
Tip: After drilling holes, place acorns in oven at 275 for 10 minutes to help kill any mold or tiny bugs that might be inside the acorn. Cool completely before stringing together.
No table cloth No problem-Use Burlap
If you don’t want to use a table cloth or apples, use a burlap runner, add pumpkins, grapes, leaves and faux orange mums with no candles. Many options in making a pretty table runner.
