Thanksgiving Decorations

Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  Many usually cherish this time since it is about bringing family together and sharing memories with those you love the most.  The best way to start off this festive time of year is by spreading the holiday cheer through decorations around your home.  Today, we are bringing you our first installment of Thanksgiving decorations by focusing on big statement pieces you can easily add to your home.


1. Give Thanks Mantel

One simple way to make a big impact is to create a mantel to remind us to always Give Thanks!!! I wanted the whole mantel to be in warm neutral colors, covered with different variations of browns. Lots of different textures and finishes!


2. Thankful Banner

If you are looking for something simple this is the perfect craft.  You probably have most items at home and it can even involve the kids to made a quick DIY banner. With brown lunch bags, a black marker, and black ribbon you will be in business. Always a nice reminder to ‘be thankful’ so it makes us happy to look at it.


3. Indian Corn Wreath DIY

This is an absolutely GORGEOUS, stunning, beauty! So full of autumnal color and texture and so so easy to make!  The INDIAN CORN WREATH usually takesabout 30 minutes from start to finish. If you make one thing this fall, this should be it! It will look fabulous on your front door, from your walk, from the road… even going by it in a car!!! It’s not shy or demure… but offers a huge does of fall beauty and a hearty fall welcome!


4. Watercolor Paper Leaf & Branch Mobile

One of my favorite things about fall is all of the beautiful colored leaves, but if you live in an area where its harder to find these beautiful colored leaves then it’s best to take matters into your own hands and make some colorful leaves of your own. The easiest way is by using watercolor paints to turn everyday paper into a gorgeous watercolor leaf and branch mobile that showcases all of the gorgeous colors of autumn. This is a perfect activity for your little artists if you have any kid’s you are trying to keep busy this time of year.


5. Canning Jar Ring Pumpkin

This canning jar ring pumpkin is an adorable fall craft that can be completed in under ten minutes.



6. DIY Autumn Leaf Bowls

The chill is in the air and the leaves are changing color, and there's no better way to preserve the delight than by welcoming it into your home. Yes, the craft stores overflowing with autumn decorations can be intimidating, but there are ways to turn those faux autumn leaves into something beautiful and functional. Here are instructions for your very own autumn leaf bowl, perfect for holding your favorite scented potpourri or tasty Halloween treats.


7. Thankful Sign & Paper Feather Banner

For the feather banner we cut these feathers on colored card stock using the Silhouette and a Silhouette design file.  They are about 4 1/2 inches long.  We went with some less traditional Fall colors for the feathers, and we sure love how it turned out!  Navy blue, mint green, light coral, and white just became my new favorite colors for Fall.


8.  Easy DIY Fall Leaves Potter Topiary Tree

I've been brainstorming on how to use 2 urn planters for some sort of fall decoration on the cheap and these tomato cage fall topiary trees were just too easy (and pretty) to not add to my autumn decor!


9. DIY Falling Leaves Garland

It’s finally autumn, and we are happy to share this DIY glittery leaf garland to spruce up your house for the season.


10. Door Greeting

Greet guests with this charming alternative to a fall wreath. Simply apply a layer of chalkboard paint to the inside of an old tray then add autumn branches and bittersweet berries for a seasonal finish.





11. No Bones About It

Cincinnati-based Rookwood Pottery Company’s ceramic wishbones make for seriously snappy wall art. The company, which has produced earthenware since 1880, hand-makes each and every, and then coats the lucky charms with a scent formula glaze.



12. Fall Greetings

Give your porch a warm autumn touch by adding a cozy fall pillow.







13. Pine cone Door Hanging

Not all DIY front-door décor require a form wreath form. To make this elegant cluster, we selected 8 four-to six-inch pinecones and 8 two-foot-long pieces of silk ribbon. Use a hot-glue gun to adhere to the last two inches of each ribbon to the base of the cone. After the glue dries, collect all the ribbon ends and stagger them so that the cones fall at varying lengths. Tie the ribbon ends together in a knot, trim the tips so they are uniform, and slip the knot over a finishing nail.
