GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - The rich colors of autumn are quickly falling from the trees. However, you can bring some of that color indoors to enjoy a while longer.

Koehler and Dramm's Institute of Floristry associate instructor Lynn Tischler joined the KARE 11 News at 4 to show how to create a festive Halloween themed arrangement that easily transitions to an everyday fall centerpiece. And with minor alterations becomes an exquisite Thanksgiving arrangement.

This design uses dried, silk and fresh seasonal elements that can be purchased from your local florist, craft store, or nursery.
