Farmhouse Fall Table Project Instructions
Leaf Place Card Holders
Round up all of your supplies, including the Delta Ceramcoat paint. This paint is such a versatile formula to work with, as it is able to be applied to a number of different surfaces (including wood, terra cotta, plaster and paper mâché), and it dries to a lovely matte finish. The coverage of this paint is terrific, and it is so handy that Target carries it in 22 great colors, as well as 6 colors of the Delta Ceramcoat Flash Metallic paints, which dry to a glossy, reflective color.

Remove the jute hanger piece from the top of the ornament. Apply two pieces of painter’s tape to create a stripe down the center front of the leaf ornament. Use the paint brush to apply the white Delta Ceramcoat paint within the stripe. When the paint has dried, remove the tape.
Paint one of the mini clothespins with the Pumpkin Ceramcoat paint, and set it aside to dry completely.
When the clothespin is dry, use a dab of hot glue to attach it to the front of the leaf so that it covers the hole that the hanger was threaded through before. Now, use the clip to attach a place card, and you are all set!
Wood Plank Chargers
Tape off the top and lower edges of the basswood plank with painter’s tape. To create an inverted chevron design, make a small inverted V at the bottom center of the piece. Place more inverted V shapes of painter’s tape above the first, spacing each V about 1 inch apart, until you reach the top taped-off edge. (Refer below.)
Use a brush to apply the White Ceramcoat paint within the boundaries of the painter’s tape, leaving the top and lower edges unpainted.
When the paint is dry, remove the tape to reveal your design!
The rustic feel of these chargers is so great for a farmhouse style.
Painted Pumpkin Centerpiece
Sketch a 2″ grid on the front of the pumpkin using the ruler and pencil. On the top row, label every other square with a G (for grey). Leave the other squares in this row blank (for white).
On the second row, label the squares that border the G squares above with a B (for black). Label the remaining squares in this row with G.
Label the bottom row as you did the first. Refer to the photo below as an example.
Using the brush, paint each square its designated color. Paint the stem black, and allow the paint to dry completely.
Affix the wood shape sticker to the lower right-hand side of the pumpkin, as shown.
This buffalo check pattern makes such a nice statement as a fall centerpiece!
With just a few easy and fun DIY projects, you can create a fall table to wow your guests this fall.
I love that so many of the items I used for this came from the Dollar Spot at Target, making this an affordable way to entertain with style!
