Thanksgiving table decorations that are so easy..make a Thanksgiving centerpiece using fall decorations. My Mom shared this one with me and it couldn't be any easier or cheaper. Then take a look at how to recycle your Halloween pumpkins and autumn door wreath and make them into pretty Thanksgiving decorations. You can make it in under five minutes and it costs you nothing!
How did Grandma do it? She took down her fall wreath, then bought a pumpkin from the craft store that was on sale for 75% off, so cost for it .. $1.29. Since it is after Halloween, all the autumn and Halloween decorations are unbelievably cheap. Put the pumpkin in the center of the wreath and it makes for a beautiful Thanksgiving centerpiece. For mine, I found 2 wooden Pilgrim candlestick holders in the attic. Thinking those were from one of the kid's school projects! Lesson learned, don't throw anything out! Dusted them off and added to the Thanksgiving centerpiece. An extra cute touch! Now that your table is ready, plan a fun family game while you are eating. Two of our favorites are Turkey Trivia and Turkey Tunes
Here is how they looked when used as Thanksgiving table centerpieces.. place them on your dinner table or on your buffet or dessert table! So don't be too quick to put that fall wreath up in the attic!
One of my favorite blogs, The Gourmet Rooster had another cute idea for
making Thanksgiving centerpieces out of recycled autumn decorations
using your pumpkins. Don't throw them out quite yet if they are still
good.. spray paint them in metallic and fall colors and use to decorate
for Thanksgiving. Visit Courtney at the Gourmet Rooster for more crafty and clever ideas! Or turn your Halloween pumpkin into a turkey with these cute pumpkin pokes!
See how the kids can turn a roll of toilet paper into these Thanksgiving Decorations all by themselves! The only other supplies you need are, sticks from the yard, ribbon and fabric squares!
