My dining room table is one of those places I keep decorated all year long. I switch it out with various table decorations depending on the season. I love sitting around the table visiting with friends and family over a nice meal, a cup of coffee or an impromptu game of cards so I try and scale my table decor so that it doesn’t have to be removed every time we use the table. These fall table decorations are my favorite!
This log centerpiece is perfect for fall/winter and rustic decor. It is beefy enough to stand alone or you can pair other accessories with it (like my Log Candles). I like decorating with logs because they sit low. There is nothing more frustrating than trying to look around a big colored vase or through a tall set of candles to get in on the conversation.

Fall Table Decorations Supplies:
- A Log (I live on 3.5 wooded acres so this is never a problem for me!)
- A drill
- 1.5″ Ryobi Forstner bit. This is the exact set I bought. I love it because it has all different sizes of bits which means…more cool projects to create!
- Hand saw or mitre saw (optional)
- Tea lights (I love these because they flicker like real candles without the flame)
Fall Table Decorations Instructions:
Step 1: Soak your log in bleach water and let dry. (You don’t want to bring any unwanted bugs to your table)
Step 2: Cut off the ends with a mitre saw if needed.
Step 3: Find the center of your log and begin drilling. You will want to drill down approximately 1/2″ to hold the tea light
Step 4: Drill as many holes as you want. I chose 5 holes. I like odd numbers…it’s a crazy designer thing. lol
That is it! Voila! Shazam! Now go out to your wood pile and find your next table decoration…A Log Centerpiece!!!
