Thanksgiving is only a week away, so it’s time to finish preparing. Put away those Halloween decorations, and break out your fall and Thanksgiving decor. You probably won’t set the table until the day of, but that doesn’t mean you can’t decorate it before then. To really bring in the holiday and impress your guests, try placing a Thanksgiving centerpiece on your dinner table. Don’t have one? No worries! You can easily create one yourself in no time with these DIY Thanksgiving centerpiece ideas!
Thanksgiving Centerpiece Ideas #1: Use Pumpkins
Even though Halloween is over, it doesn’t mean pumpkins are out of style. There are many Thanksgiving table decor options for your decorated pumpkins, small ones, and even large ones! One way is to create a mini pumpkin patch along the center of your table with the help from a vine, or simply lining up the small pumpkins on a wooden panel. Another idea is creating your very own pumpkin vase! Transform a pumpkin into a planter by removing the top of the pumpkin, scooping out the seeds and pulp, and simply filling it with floral foam and flowers. You can also surround your Thanksgiving centerpiece with acorns, squash, and other seasonal elements.
Thanksgiving Centerpiece Ideas #2: Unexpected Candleholders
A super easy Thanksgiving centerpiece idea is taking your candles to the next level with some unexpected candleholders. Sure, you can also use pumpkins or squash for this, but try experimenting with other fall market finds. Use a knife and cut 1-inch-deep holes in the top of the apples you picked. Then simply wedge the candles in, displaying them alone or with stacked apples on the table as well. If you already have candles in a container, fill those babies up with assorted nuts such as walnuts, chestnuts, or almonds to hold short candles in place and add to the Thanksgiving scenery. Finally, you can embellish the candleholders with dried herbs such as bay leaves to look and smell even more amazing!
Thanksgiving Centerpiece Ideas #3: Bundle Wheat
To put a modern and easy twist on a seasonal staple, try bundling wheat together for a simple but festive Thanksgiving centerpiece. You have two options with this Thanksgiving decor. First, you can grab a handful of wheat and tie them all together with twine and place the whole bundle in a clear vase. Your second option is tying embroidery thread to groups of wheat before placing them into the glass container. This way is more colorful, and just as easy to achieve! All you need is wheat, string, and scissors, and you’ve just created an effortless decoration for your table!
Thanksgiving Centerpiece Ideas #4: Autumn Harvest
The best Thanksgiving decor is a classic autumn harvest. This Thanksgiving centerpiece is easy to ensemble, and can be used year after year. Simply mix together berries, corn, gourds, leaves, branches, pinecones, and dried flowers from your very own backyard. This Thanksgiving centerpiece idea takes advantage of nature’s bounty, bringing beautiful texture and vibrance to your Thanksgiving table.
