Fill Glass Ornaments with Popcorn for a Great Fall Centerpiece

To make this inexpensive and unique Fall Centerpiece, start by picking up some yellow and white popcorn kernels on your next trip to the grocery store!  If you can find kernels in the bulk section they will be less expensive.  We found 2 pound bags of white and yellow kernels at Natural Grocers for only $2.17 per bag.  One 2 lb bag of each color filled our large clear vase and all the glass ornaments on display below.

Fill clear vase with popcorn kernels and add a few popcorn ornaments!

Use a funnel to fill a large clear vase with popcorn kernels.  These will make a great base and cover the ends of the branches you add to the vase.  You can add all one color or make layers of white and yellow popcorn kernels.  We used all white below (except for the one yellow kernel that somehow got in there).  Leave about 1″ at the top so it doesn’t overflow when you add the branches.

Add a few small branches to the vase.  We cut 3 random branches off a few bushes outside and they worked perfect.  Branches need to be able to hold the weight of the popcorn ornaments without bending or breaking.  Let them dry completely before you add them to the vase.  Press the branches firmly into the kernels so they are securely in place.

Now it’s time to fill a few glass ornaments with popcorn kernels.  We found it was easiest to use a funnel.  Remove the silver hanging tab by gently pulling on the loop.  Then pour a few tablespoons into the glass ball ornaments.  Here is what it will look like:

Attach the hanging tab back to the top of the glass ornament by squeezing the prongs.  Then add Sheer Ribbon for hanging.  We used 1 1/2″ Ginger Ribbon.  Each ornament will need about 12″ of ribbon.  Tie off ribbon in a knot at the top.

For an extra touch, add a small bow to the top of the ornament with matching embroidery floss.
