Quick DIY Thanksgiving Decoration!

Quick DIY Thanksgiving Decoration!

Hi babies!

Whether you're having everyone over your house or going to a loved ones house for Thanksgiving, there are a million things to be done before the big day. Growing up in an Italian family, it is instilled in your mind that you can never go any where empty handed. It's nice to switch things up from an appetizer or bottle of wine which are the usual go to gifts. But, making a craft to bring to your host (or to use as decor in your own home) needs to be quick and easy. Here are 3 Fall crafts that will take you less than 10 minutes to make and will be perfect for your Thanksgiving display. 

Potpourri Candle

What you'll need:

  • vase
  • tall candle
  • potpourri

This is kinda too easy to explain. All you have to do is wash the vase to get all the fingerprints off, pour in half of the bag of potpourri, place the candle in the vase and push it into the potpourri a bit so that it doesn't move and then pour the rest of the bag around the candle. Ta-da! It's super cute, simple, and smells so good!

Pine Cone Centerpiece

What you'll need:

  • big bowl
  • pine cones
  • tall candle 
  • small pumpkins or acorns

First, place the candle in the center of the bowl and add the pine cones around it. I got scented ones at AC Moore for a little extra somethin' somethin'. I added the little plastic pumpkins and acorns for a little pop of color. Again, super easy and perfect for the middle of your Thanksgiving table.

Thankful Bowl

What you'll need:

  • small vase or bowl
  • Fall ribbon
  • black Sharpie
  • hot glue gun

Just a bit more work is required for this one. First, wash the container to get the finger prints off. Use the hot glue gun to stick the ribbon to the glass, then fold another piece of ribbon in half and tie that around with a bow. Use a Sharpie to write on the glass, if you put a white piece of paper on the inside of the glass while you're writing, it's much easier to see what you're doing. Then just cut up some paper and fill the bowl.

While everyone is sitting around eating some apps, pass around the paper and have everyone write down something they are thankful for. If you want to turn it into a little game, at the end of the night, you can pass the bowl around and guess which one belongs to who. It's a good way to liven up your coffee and dessert time so no one falls asleep. 

There we go! 3 super quick and easy crafts that will add a little extra festive feel to your Thanksgiving this year! Remember that the best part about these DIY crafts is using your creativity and imagination. Feel free to switch things up if you want and just have fun with them! Hope you all enjoy, until next time!
