I love the idea of reusing these dollar store plastic pumpkins for Fall centerpieces. The article mentions using dry rice or beans to hold the stems in place but I am thinking of using bird seed. Once I'm done with the display I can feed the seed to our feathered friends. Visit Up To Date Interiors for the directions and see how you can make this darling display they have pictured.
