Create a beautiful table display that shows off the bounty of the season. Cylindrical vases filled with birdseed provide a sturdy base for branches from which small pumpkins dangle on bits of twine. Between the vases, hollowed-out gourds hold candles as well as berries. Finish the look by arranging berries, pinecones, gourds, branches and moss around the vases.

Chances are that anyone not preparing food will be glued to the football games, or idly messaging on their phones, or doing any one of the things that people do as they bide their time on Thanksgiving Day.

This thankful turkey can be a decoration all month long or constructed just before your Thanksgiving dinner. To create this project, begin with a large pinecone. Cut feather shapes from scrapbook paper, crease them in half lengthwise and fringe the edges with scissors. Construct the turkey's head by cutting out an oval and a circle and adding googly eyes, a beak and a wattle. Have family or guests write what they're thankful for on the feathers and tuck feathers into pinecone.
Send guests home with these adorable twine-wrapped Mason jars decorated with leaves. Whether you use vintage maps cut in the shape of leaves, store-bought craft leaves, or the real thing, you're sure to win a few compliments for these beauties (especially if you let friends and family fill them with leftovers, like this farro and acorn squash salad).
Make the Wreath: Wrap a 16-inch wreath form with burlap ribbon and loop a piece around the wreath form for hanging. Paint the tips of 40 pine cones in fall colors such as orange, yellow, and beige with acrylic paint. Brush the tips of 10 pine cones with matte Mod Podge and sprinkle with gold and copper glitter. Once dry, wrap an 18-inch length of floral wire around the base of each pinecone and twist tie around the wreath form to secure, layering and overlapping them as you go.

Make a pretty centerpiece or mantel decoration by layering seasonal materials in clear glass cylinder vases. We started with corn kernels, then added burgundy cockscomb celosia, orange bittersweet, pale green dried hops and brown oak leaves. Top with a rust-color pillar candle. Change candles if the flame gets close to the dried material, or use a battery-powered candle for safety.
