Thanksgiving is just around the corner and that means it’s time to start making plans for DIY Thanksgiving decorations. Making decorations with your family can be such a great way to bond and create lasting memories while also getting a head start on the holiday fun! Here, we’ll explore some fun and creative DIY ideas to help you set the scene for a beautiful Thanksgiving meal this year.
One great way to celebrate the season is with some unique centerpieces. If you’re looking to spruce up your dinner table, why not try your hand at making a DIY Thanksgiving floral arrangement? Gather a few of your favorite fall flowers, some twigs, and a couple of pinecones, and you’ll have the makings of a beautiful display that will look great at your holiday feast. You could even throw in some traditional Thanksgiving decorations like small pumpkins and gourds to really add to the festive look.
For those of you looking for something a little more crafty, why not get the family together and make some DIY Thanksgiving luminaries? These can be easy to assemble, and the kids will love the chance to get creative. All you’ll need to do is get a few small glass jars with lids, some tissue paper, oil-based markers, and tea lights. Cut out shapes from the tissue paper, draw on them with the markers, and then put the shapes into the jars. Light up the tea lights and you’ll have beautiful glowing decorations that will bring some twinkle to your table.
Another fun and easy idea is to make some wood plank art. Grab a couple of wooden planks and then get out your paints, markers, and/or stencils, and let the creative juices flow! You can paint some wood blocks in seasonal colors like orange and red and then put together a classic thankful sign. Or, you could stencil some of your favorite Thanksgiving sayings onto the planks and create a unique conversation piece for your dinner table.
No DIY Thanksgiving decorations would be complete without some festive wreaths. It’s surprisingly easy to make your own wreaths with just a few supplies. Start with a wire clothes hanger, floral wire, and some colorful ribbons. Then, choose your favorite fall foliage and berries to up your wreath game. Add a few of the materials to the wire hanger, twist it around, and once you’re satisfied, hang it proudly on your door or mantel for all to admire.
Finally, why not make some fun Thanksgiving decorations with the kiddos? It’s simple to make some colorful paperchains out of construction paper, which the kids will love helping you do. Plus, it’s such a cheap and easy way to decorate for the holiday season that you can’t go wrong.
So there you have it! Now you have some fun and creative ideas for making DIY Thanksgiving decorations that are sure to bring some joy to your home this holiday season. Get the family together, gather your materials, and start crafting away! In no time you’ll have a beautiful festive atmosphere that the family will love. Enjoy!
