Are you hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year? Planning a beautiful Thanksgiving tablescape is a fun way to get creative and create a festive atmosphere for your guests. Check out our 5 DIY decoration ideas to make this Thanksgiving’s table extra special!
Of course, it’s quicker and easier to head to the party store and pick up pre-made decorations, but those store-bought centerpieces and table decorations come with a hefty footprint, both environmentally and socially. They’re often meant to be used once and then tossed, and like any other product that’s mass-produced overseas, there’s a decent chance that there were questionable labor practices involved.
Thanksgiving is all about gratitude and sharing what’s in your heart with your friends and family, so not only are handmade decorations better for the planet, but when you make even some of the decorations yourself, you’re adding a little piece of you to your holiday decor. That’s something you can’t put a price tag on.
The decorations on the next few pages are very simple, for the most part, although one does require some basic sewing skills. For that project, I’ll offer a no-sew alternative! Up next, check out some simple, all-natural centerpiece ideas!
