Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids
You can always make those Turkey Hands, and my kids love doing that, but sometimes you want something a little outside of the box.
Thanksgiving Crafts for Your Home
From gourd candle holders to DIY garland, getting creative with your Thanksgiving decor is a must this season!
Chalkboards are still hot, y’all! Last year I put this list of Thanksgiving Chalkboards together and I can’t wait to get my chalk out and decorate my board.
These Acorn Coasters, from The Seasoned Homemaker, could be used on your Thanksgiving table, but they could also be strategically placed by the TV for use while watching the Big Game.
This beautiful DIY: Pumpkin Succulent Harvest Decoration, from Simply Happenstance, would be lovely on a dinner table, or on your mantel or entryway table.
These DIY Calling Leaves Garland, from House of Jade Interiors, is cheap and easy and so beautiful! Hang pretty much anywhere in your home to add a little color and festive flare. I can imagine them being hung at different heights above the dinner table to mimic the effect of falling leaves. How lovely would that be?
Festive signs are something that can be pulled out every year to bring some seasonal decor. Make this DIY Thanksgiving Sign, from The Happy Tulip, and add it to your mantel or really anywhere for a little Gobble, Gobble.
Mix a spunky garland and some typography with this DIY Thanksgiving Garland, from Life if a Lullaby.
Lest we forget what Thanksgiving is really about here is a craft meant to remind us all. The Thankful Tree, from Simply Vintagegirl, is so pretty and such a great way to get everyone involved in the spirit of the season.
Thanksgiving Crafts for Your Table
A cornucopia is what classically adorns a Thanksgiving tablescape, but these days there is so much inspiration out that you don’t have to feel stuck with what’s always been done.
A centerpiece doesn’t have to be fussy or complicated to be beautiful. Check this Autumn Harvest Centerpiece that I put together a few years ago. It’s simple and easy and looks pretty and sophisticated.
I love these ‘Gourd’eous Candle Holders, from Revel. They would be so beautiful spread among huge platters of turkey and stuffing.
Don’t we all love burlap this time of year? The rustic, yet warm feel, with the amazing texture adds so much to Thanksgiving decor. These Painted Burlap Thanksgiving Place Settings, from A Night Owl, are just the right amount of burlap to add to your table.
More burlap! This is one of those DIY’s you will use over and over again every year! I love the colors in this Burlap Thanksgiving Table Runner, from The Seasoned Homemaker.
I love the look of craft paper. It’s so neutral but can give a huge impact. This Kraft Paper Table Runner from Dawn Nicole Designs, with its hand-written place cards, blue and gold accents, and white dishware is so incredibly beautiful I almost can’t stand it.
These Thanksgiving Place Cards, from Typically Simple, are one of those crafts you would whip out the night before your big meal. Easy and beautiful!
Typography is always classic and these Simple Thanksgiving Placemats, from Frugal MomEH!, are great! And simple enough to make one for every member of the table.
