Make a Simple Wooden Stand

We're really getting into the fall spirit around here.  With an apple picking trip planned for this coming weekend, I felt like it was time to get a little festive inside the house.  I found some beautiful cream and green squash at the farm market and then came upon some cute little pumpkins at the craft store. I knew I wanted to display them all at varying heights so I made this sweet little wooden stand for under ten dollars. It only took about 5 mins to make.

You will need:

-1 extra small round wooden plaque
-1 small round wooden plaque
-1 short wooden candle holder
-Gorilla Glue or Super Glue

Center the candle holder in the middle of the underside of the bigger round plaque and glue down.  When solid and dry, glue the smaller plaque face up to the bottom of the candle holder.  That's it!  You may choose to paint or stain your wooden stand, but I liked mine simple and clean, and left the raw finish.
Add a glass cloche to the top, some mini pumpkins and you've got a beautiful fall display. Cheap and easy, you can't beat that!

How are you celebrating the beginning of Fall?
