Make your own lovely Thanksgiving Table Decor and Centerpieces
It’s hard to believe we are once again talking about Fall and Thanksgiving. Didn’t we just celebrate New Years?
Well, believe it or not, the leaves are falling and Autumn is once again here so it’s also time to think about making your Thanksgiving dinner table decorations.
I have found some creative dinner table ideas that are not just for Thanksgiving. These cool projects are perfect for the entire Fall or Autumn so you can leave them up until it is time to decorate for Christmas.
Lately, I’ve come to realize that my favorite DIY home decorations are also the simplest. I am not one to take on a long term, fussy and too-involved craft project. Trust me, it’ll never get finished!!
What I really like in my DIY crafts are pieces that can perform double duty.
For instance, the fall grapevine wreath you made for your front door can be transformed into a lovely Thanksgiving dinner table centerpiece with the addition of some small decorative pumpkins and a rustic burlap ribbon.
I know you are probably looking through your home decorating magazines with their oh-so-perfect table settings.
Well, you really don’t have to spend a lot of money (or buy a lot of new things) to create a stunning thanksgiving dinner table decoration.
As a big advocate for recycling, repurposing and minimizing, I always try to look around the house and see what home decorations I already have.
(And don’t forget the thrift store! I get some of my best ideas for DIY Decor browsing the shelves at Goodwill.)
So, without further ado, I hope you enjoy these fall crafts which include Felt Napkin Rings, DIY Cork Trivets and Fall Pumpkin Centerpieces. There is even a tutorial for making your own Clay Leaf Bowls.

What are common decorations during Thanksgiving?
Traditional Thanksgiving decorations usually include the fall harvest such as pumpkins, gourds and squashes as well as dried corn stalks and straw bales. You can combine these into a centerpiece or as a cornucopia.
Fall foliage such as mums or autumn leaves also make wonderful decorations for your home or your Thanksgiving dinner table.
