Love this Mayflower table centerpiece. It is perfect and unique as a harvest table decoration. The instructions and photos show that this should be very easy to duplicate. I would not have guessed, from looking at the original photo that this is made from a shoebox, floral foam, some dowels and scraps of fabric.

Now, that's a unique Thanksgiving decoration! It looks like a great conversation starter as well as just a really cool centerpiece. And it starts with a shoebox? That's right up my alley! I don't have the placemats she suggests but I can come up with something to use in their place.
