I ventured into the grocery store yesterday and was quickly reminded that shopping within days of a major holiday is not such a good idea. Along with me, there were lots of last-minute shoppers trying to get the job done. That whole process got me thinking that there are probably lots of people out there who have put off pulling together their Thanksgiving decor as well! If you happen to fall into that group, don’t fret because there are lots of quick and easy looks you can pull together in time for Thanksgiving. To give you a little inspiration, I’ve rounded up five of my favorite Thanksgiving DIY projects.
Fresh flowers are a must for the dining table but this look will jazz up your table more than a vase of flowers ever could. Purchase several bunches of fall flowers, snip the flowers heads off and glue them to the outside of pumpkins. You’ll want to create this centerpiece an hour or two before your dinner so the flower heads will stay fresh.
It’s easy to pull together a Thanksgiving look for your mantel just by adding a few fall pieces to the decor that you already have.
Let nature do the work when it comes to creating a fun table centerpiece. I love how the leaves add layers and dimension on top of a simple fall tablecloth.
This is a great project to get the kids involved with. Cut leaf shapes from different colors and patterns of paper and felt, and use double-sided tape to attach them to the edges of a plain white tablecloth that’s been accented with a band of ribbon. Crafty chic for sure!
And finally, gather some pinecones from the yard, add eye ring screws and create a garland for the mantle!
Here’s to being Thankful for so many creative ideas!
