Easy Thanksgiving Decor Projects You Can Make Yourself

November 11, 2015 5:19 pm

Making your own Thanksgiving decor is a great way to add personal touches to your family’s dinner and save a bit of money on pricey store-bought centerpieces. Here are three gorgeous ideas for Thanksgiving decor that even the least crafty host can make at home.

Grapevine Pumpkin [Bob Vila]
For only around $3, you can create a 3D pumpkin centerpiece made from simple grapevine. This craft store staple is stiff and easy to mold into any shape that you like, so all it takes is a bit of bending to create the plump pumpkin shape. Simply cut some shorter pieces to create the pumpkin’s stem and you have a unique, handmade centerpiece in just a few minutes.

Fall Monogram Wreath [Pinterest]
Greet your guests at the door with a beautiful wreath made from fallen leaves. Simply take an antique picture frame, arrange colorful leaves in the shape of your last initial inside and hang it on the door using decorative ribbon.

Pumpkin Planters for Succulents [Martha Stewart]
Succulents are a very popular design trend, so you might want to incorporate these adorable desert plants into your Thanksgiving decor. To make them a bit more autumnal, simply hollow out a miniature pumpkin or squash and plant the succulents inside.
