Fall is my favorite season for many reasons – clothing, weather, warm drinks, and most importantly home decor. I’ve added fall touches to our living room, including a chunky throw, fall candles, and a large faux-fur pillow. However, one area of our home that was lacking some fall-inspired decor was our dining room.

I completed this DIY on Saturday in less than 10 minutes, using items I already had. Keep reading if your interested in learning how to make this gorgeous coffee-themed centerpiece. 

DIY Fall Centerpiece

Items Needed for Candle Holders

  • 2 different sized mason jars
  • decorative sand
  • coffee grinds
  • 2 tea-light candles
  • red twine or yarn


Fill up 1/2 to 3/4 of the jars with sand. Fill the remainder with coffee grinds. Place a tea-light candle on top of the coffee in each jar. Wrap red twine or yarn around the mouth of the jars a few times. Then tie a bow. 

Place candle holders on a large circular or rectangular tray. Add pinecones and a small bud vase filled with faux red and orange berries. Light the candles and enjoy your new easy DIY fall centerpiece!

This coffee-related DIY certainly had me craving a cup of java, so I had a pot brewing in the background. My favorite blend at the moment is Lavazza‘s Caffe Espresso. It’s nice and dark, and will definitely put a pep in your step! It’s perfect for mornings when you have a lot of errands to run or chores around the house to complete.

    Never would have thought to use coffee! Bet it smells great. 🙂

      It does!! Be use to use a scent-free candle tho. That way the smells don’t overpower each other.
