DIY Decorations for Thanksgiving

Despite the fact that Thanksgiving is embedded in the American tradition, this fall holiday tends to be overlooked as far as decorating is concerned. As soon as Halloween ends, it seems like Christmas decorations pop up all over in stores and restaurants, with Thanksgiving receiving little recognition by comparison.

In the spirit of fall and Thanksgiving tradition, you should elect to take on some easy decoration projects right at home to show your Thanksgiving spirit. Here are just a few to help you get started.

  1. Wreaths

Wreaths are a pretty symbolic door piece for Christmas, but Thanksgiving has plenty of plants and foliage to pick from to decorate a wreath as well. In fact, the fall colors will go perfectly on any door to welcome your guests. They’re also really easy to make.

 

  1. Twig Turkey

Rustic, homely feelings dominate Thanksgiving, along with turkey, so why not combine the two into a great decoration project. A twig turkey will look great as a centerpiece on your dinner or coffee table, and it could even be a great project to involve your kids in as well!

  1. Leaves and Mason Jars

This one probably takes the cake in the easy DIY project department. All you need are some fall-colored leaves, mason jars, glue, and some tea candles! This project will create nice fall-themed lanterns that will add to the glow of the fall.

4. Coloring Pages

You don’t have to get too fancy. Why not have the kids color some Thanksgiving-themed coloring pages? We put together three for you that you can download and print out.

5. Autumn Lights

Everyone knows that Christmas lights are almost ubiquitous once the holiday season starts kicking in, but that doesn’t mean they can be used for Thanksgiving as well! Just using some fall leaves, you can put these on your Christmas lights to create a great decoration for your home.

These four do-it-yourself projects are simple and easy to get done from the comfort of your own home. With a little time and a quick trip to the craft supplies store, you will be able to show your Thanksgiving spirit and add a little color to your home as well. This way, you can help add Thanksgiving back on the calendar in its rightful place before Christmas.
