With Thanksgiving upon us, it’s easy to overlook the rest of the house when you have so much to do in the kitchen. But don’t worry! You can create warm and inviting décor without spending a lot of time or money. Use these simple DIY projects for cheap Thanksgiving decorations:
- 5-Minute Centerpiece
No time to decorate before the family gathers ’round for a feast? Make a centerpiece in a snap! Grab a large bowl (or punch bowl if it’s not in use) and fill it with autumnal décor items like gourds, miniature pumpkins, red apples, or pinecones.
- Falling Leaves
For quick and easy décor that will delight your guests, string real (or artificial) leaves on fishing wire. Hang them from the ceiling or along your walls to create a beautiful look. Add a little extra seasonal splendor by spraying metallic or glitter paint on the leaves beforehand. (See full instructions.)
- Make a Thankful Tree
What could be better than a centerpiece that expresses all that you’re thankful for this season? With a few branches, a vase, and paper, your whole family can decorate the tree with their messages of thanks!
