As the leaves begin their enchanting transformation and the scent of pumpkin spice fills the air, we find ourselves on the brink of everyone’s favorite season: fall. It’s the time of year when we eagerly embrace cozy sweaters, pumpkin patches, and the joy of harvest festivities. It’s the perfect time to create a Scarecrow Side Table Floral Arrangement. 

Scarecrow Side Table Floral Arrangement for Fall

Imagine this charming scarecrow perched atop your side table, surrounded by a burst of vibrant autumn blooms. It’s the perfect fusion of rustic charm and seasonal elegance, a warm welcome to the sights and scents of fall. The Scarecrow Side Table Floral Arrangement is the epitome of autumn charm. It’s a delightful twist on traditional arrangements, bringing together the spirit of the harvest with the beauty of nature’s bounty. 

Fall isn’t just about the rich tapestry of changing leaves; it’s also a season of breathtaking floral beauty. From sunflowers to mums, dahlias to asters, the autumn garden boasts a dazzling array of colors and textures. The Scarecrow Side Table Floral Arrangement capitalizes on this natural splendor, weaving together a tapestry of fall blooms that dance in harmony with the charm of a whimsical scarecrow. It’s a visual feast that celebrates the beauty of the season in all its glory, and we can’t wait to show you how to bring this magic into your home.

Whether you’re a seasoned DIY enthusiast or a novice looking for a creative outlet, this project is sure to spark your fall spirit and elevate your home decor game. So, grab your crafting scissors and let’s embark on a journey to infuse your home with the warmth and wonder of fall.


  • Begin by deciding where your scarecrow will go. I like putting my centerpieces to the side of the base, so I know where she will go. Set your scarecrow to the side, but remember where you will be placing it. You could even mark your foam with some scissors to remind yourself to keep that space open. 
  • Start by breaking down your first Leaf Mini Pumpkin Spray. I pulled it apart into 3 pieces. Use these pieces to create the perimeter of your centerpiece. I put one on each side of the bucket, and one in the front. Bend these stems over and fluff them out to cover the side of the bucket. 
  • Take your Twig Hanging Vine and break it into smaller pieces. Create little bundles of twigs by folding pieces on themselves and securing with a cable tie. 
  • Place a cluster of twigs between the 3 spray pieces from step 2. 
  • Now, get your scarecrow ready for your centerpiece by attaching a couple little pieces of twigs on her hat, and add glue to her feet before placing her in the centerpiece in the place you decided earlier. 
  • Add your bow to your centerpiece. I added mine to the other side of the bucket. 
  • Break down your Orange Ranunculus Filler Bush, trying to keep the stems as long as possible. I want these stems to be nearly as tall as our scarecrow. 
  • Begin placing your Ranunculus bush pieces into the foam. I added the tallest pieces just beside the scarecrow, and added shorter pieces to fill in the back of your arrangement. 
  • Break down your second Leaf Mini Pumpkin Spray to finish up the front and fill in the back of your centerpiece. I added two pieces to the front, filling in near the scarecrow’s feet. 
  • Fill in the back of your centerpiece, just to cover up all the foam. I added a couple bunches of twigs as well as the pieces from the sprays. 
  • Add a piece of the spray coming out the bow in the front, and your centerpiece is all done! 


  • Change out the colors or elements to make the centerpiece your own. Add a different bow or centerpiece. Use different greenery and florals. You could even use Christmas or Halloween elements to make it a totally different look! The best part of this centerpiece is that it’s so easily customizable! 
  • I love my glue skillet. I just melt hot glue sticks in a regular kitchen skillet, which allows me to just easily dip my stems into the glue rather than trying to get my glue where I need it with a glue gun. 
  • I added glue to some of my stems as I placed them into my centerpiece, but you can absolutely do a dry run. Just stick your stems into your centerpiece and you’re able to move them around until you’re happy with their placement. 

Can I use other flowers for this centerpiece? 

Absolutely, you can let your creativity bloom by experimenting with various flower choices for your Scarecrow Side Table Floral Arrangement. While traditional fall flowers like sunflowers, chrysanthemums, and daisies work beautifully to capture the essence of autumn, you have a wide array of options. Consider incorporating seasonal blooms like marigolds, asters, or even roses in rich, warm hues to craft a unique centerpiece. Additionally, you can blend in some dried elements like wheat stalks, colorful foliage, or decorative branches to add texture and depth. The key is to select flowers and greenery that resonate with your personal style and the overall look you want to achieve.

Fall Floral Centerpiece vs. Side Table Arrangement

A Fall Floral Centerpiece typically takes center stage on a dining or coffee table, serving as a striking focal point for a room or a festive addition to your dining experience. It often features a larger assortment of flowers and foliage, making a bold statement. On the other hand, a Side Table Arrangement is designed to complement your existing decor and adds a touch of autumn charm to smaller surfaces like side tables, entryway consoles, or mantels. It’s more compact and can be crafted with a variety of container options, including baskets or decorative pots. The choice ultimately depends on whether you want a grand centerpiece for gatherings or a subtle arrangement that adds a cozy, seasonal touch throughout your room.
