Directions for Centerpiece

1. On your craft board lay your antlers out in front of you and design how you would like them to look.

2. Once you have decided on your design secure antlers into place using hot glue gun and screws and screw gun if necessary.

3. Now lay out your pumpkins on your board to compliment your antlers. Once you are happy with your design secure into place with a hot glue gun.

4. Repeat this step with chosen floral. I will be using white hydrangeas and some leaves/greenery.

5. Spray paint entire structure with white spray paint. Set aside to dry. (Note that you may need to apply a few coats of spray paint for desired coverage).

6. Take your votives and secure to the board with a hot glue gun.

7. Turn on your tea light candles and place in the votives.

8. Place your centerpiece in the middle of your table on your fancy new runner!
