Easy Thanksgiving Decor
Autumn is officially here, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. That means hay, pumpkins, and warm toned colors will be seen around the neighborhood. Around this time of year, so many of us look forward to gathering with our loved ones and enjoying heaping plates of holiday food. Others of us look forward to the Fall decor that gives our homes that magical and comfortable holiday feeling. To help get your home in that holiday state of mind, we have curated a list of some of our favorite decor ideas.
This DIY would make a perfect centerpiece for your dinner or coffee table! You can start this by purchasing a hollow faux pumpkin, styrofoam blocks and fall stems from craft stores or Amazon.com.
Next, you will want to cut the stem off the top of your faux pumpkin to create a hole in the top. You want to ensure that this hole is big enough for your styrofoam. After doing so, you can take a hot glue gun and glue the styrofoam to the bottom of the inside of the pumpkin.
The last step is where you can get creative with how you want your pumpkin to look. Using your faux fall flowers, you will want to stick the stems into the styrofoam. Feel free to rearrange, adjust, and play with colors and accent accessories such as greenery and pinecones.
Thankful Tree Leaves
The Thankful Tree is a creative way to remind your family and those who visit your home of the true meaning of Thanksgiving by using small, handwritten “thanks” as the leaves.
This craft is perfect for your children to help out using items you may already have in your house. First, place sticks from your yard or some you have purchased from a craft store into a large jar or vase. Next, fill with walnuts. Reposition sticks to your liking. For the leaves, you can keep it simple or get crafty, depending on your style. You can use small wooden tags and chalkboard paint and chalk, or you can cut and write on scrapbook paper. Whatever your preference may be, this is sure to be a guest favorite in your home.
Welcome guests into your home with this warm and friendly door greeting. Merely apply chalk paint to the bottom of an antique tray and using chalk, write your greeting such as: “Welcome to our Home,” “Give Thanks,” or “Happy Thanksgiving.” Next, add faux autumn blooms and branches for additional character.
Kids Table Place Mat
Making your child their own unique placemat is simple and allows for a quick clean up after your Thanksgiving meal. To achieve this unique table decor, you’ll need kraft paper and chalk markers in assorted colors and a few items from your kitchen.
First, cut craft paper to your desired size. Next, using a chalk marker, trace a paper or ceramic plate onto the center of the kraft paper. You can then further trace objects such as silverware and cups to help children set their own placemat. Next, get crafty! Drawing leaves, pumpkins, or writing names or greetings are creative ways to add unique qualities to each child’s placemat.
