Looking for outdoor Thanksgiving decorations too? We've got a ton of those: Our Thanksgiving door decor ideas and DIY fall wreaths are an easy way to refresh your front porch and make a lasting impression on your guests—before they even set foot in your home. Of course, on Thanksgiving, the dining room table should be considered the crown jewel of your home. That's why we've put so much thought into Thanksgiving decoration ideas that'll delight your entire family—even your youngest kids. Whether you're looking for a fun kraft paper tablecloth, a printable banner, or an inexpensive arrangement, we've got you covered.
The trick to affordable Thanksgiving decorations is to use your natural surroundings. Do you have pine trees and maple trees in your backyard? Then use them in your decorations! If you can find cheap pumpkins, gourds, apples or cranberries, then buy them to use for your Thanksgiving decor and work with what you have in your home already (vases, candleholders, jars, etc.).
The focal point of this harvest-inspired mantel is a collection of inexpensive melamine plates attached to the wall with easy-to-use adhesive disc hangers. Casually arrange an assortment of pumpkins and gourds between two bundles of dried wheat on the mantel. Include a blackboard or two where you can write an inspirational quote or even your Thanksgiving menu! Click below for more photos of this display.
