Thanksgiving is a great time to think about DIY home decorations. There’s nothing more fun or enjoyable than spreading Thanksgiving cheer in your home than homemade decorations. It’s also a great way to start the holiday season off with a statement of your family’s unique creativity, and I am sure your family and friends will appreciate the effort.
Thanksgiving decorations traditionally represent the harvest season, along with the beautiful red, gold and brown colors of autumn. It’s the perfect time to come up with decorations that are in theme with the holiday.
The Fodder Shock
Constructing a fodder shock isn’t difficult. You gather up some dry corn stalks, usually left in corn areas after harvest or even at the grocery store from leftover corn husks, and form the center section inside beam to generate a type of grouping in a “tepee” configuration.
Developing a bird-scarer is simple and fun to do: make a cross with 2 sticks being connected firmly. Dress the sticks with sleeve length clothing and also a pair of jeans. Start being active. To create your scarecrow’s head, use an old pillowcase or cloth handbag. Fill with paper, cloths or stuffing. Draw a whole new face around the fabric, and then bind the “head” within the vertical axis, which should have a secure bond.
The easiest way to add natural elements, color and texture to your decor for fall is with the use of wreaths. These Thanksgiving essentials effortlessly brighten the indoor as well as outdoor areas of your home. Many stores offer beautiful wreaths made from natural elements. You can select wreaths made from natural leaves, seedpods, pinecones, and sheaves of grain. These wreaths are ideal for the fall holiday and they can last the entire season when hung in covered areas away from the sun.
Thanksgiving-inspired garlands that spell out holiday sentiments like “Give Thanks” and “Happy Thanksgiving” are great decorations. These Thanksgiving essentials can be easily made at home with craft supplies like cardstock and glitter. a country touch to your decor for fall with baskets made from natural materials like rattan. These baskets are available in a wide range of sizes, shapes and colors. They are ideal for making rustic basket-of-plenty centerpieces for the Thanksgiving table and other harvest holiday decorations. Nestle candles, pinecones or fall leaves inside them to make quick and easy centerpieces. The baskets are also helpful as storage accessories through the rest of the year.
You will also want to celebrate Thanksgiving with a nicely set table. Dress the table with themed Thanksgiving table linens and centerpieces made from natural elements of autumn. Create a backdrop with a simple tablecloth from iQ Linens and then add colorful Thanksgiving table linens. Try out different table settings to add flair to the fall decorations. Just remember to invest in a tablecloth that is easy to clean too! Especially if you have little ones coming over. For example, this year, we have also invested in a gorgeous new pvc tablecloth in stunning autumnal colors. I cannot wait to put it to good use!
The centerpiece is an essential part of fall decorations and the Thanksgiving feast. All that’s needed to make a festive centerpiece is a wicker cornucopia. Fill this basket with fresh harvest produce.
Thanksgiving is an important family holiday, so make sure you are prepared with the basics. Do you have enough serving dishes for hot food, dinner plates, folding chairs and bar stools? In fact, these can actually be rented so that you don’t have to buy furniture or supplies that are only needed one or twice a year.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of the year when families gather. It’s an ideal time to decorate your home with the beautiful colors of fall. The right colors can set the entire Thanksgiving mood.
