Forget Christmas – Thanksgiving is the most wonderful time of the year. The yummy food and the spirit of togetherness just can’t be beat. Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season and gets everyone excited for the winter months. Oh, and the food is amazing – did I already mention that?
For a super special Thanksgiving, you can’t go wrong with some DIY decorations. Luckily, there are so many fun and creative ways to dress up walls, table and front door. For these projects, you can use warm fall colors and rustic touches to really set the mood. You don’t need to create a traditional cornucopia or make some hand-print turkeys (although you can if you want to); instead, take a more understated approach and beautify your space. These FaveCrafts favorites will help you set the mood for Thanksgiving and get your creative juices flowing. Say thanks for your craft supplies and then gather them up – it’s time to get to work.
Thanksgiving Decorating Ideas
Greet your guests with an amazing DIY design. Wreaths are a great option, especially if you’re new to the world of crafting. You can add small touches and fun embellishments to personalize your own wreath and make it extra special. You can also hang a banner or display a framed piece of wall art. Still have old pumpkins leftover from Halloween? Keep those knives tucked away and grab some paint brushes – you can easily decorate the outside of a pumpkin and display it inside or on your front porch.
Thanksgiving Table Ideas
When people sit down for a yummy Thanksgiving meal, they usually have one thing in mind – food. A well-dressed table covered in handmade designs will help bring the focus back on family and togetherness. Instead of diving into the turkey and stuffing, guests will take a moment to admire the beautiful trays, centerpieces and napkin rings. While it’s a good idea to ban cell phones from the table, but in this case, you might want to have a camera on-hand to capture the pretty display (just make sure they turn the ringer off during the meal).
