Make this gorgeous diorama and you’ll be the envy of the neighborhood. Seriously, is this not the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? And, it’s not nearly as difficult to make as you would think. You will need to wait until just a week or so before Thanksgiving to create it if you’re using a real pumpkin though. You don’t want it to rot with your diorama inside.
You know you’ve seen these, and you know you’ve always wanted to make one. Well, now’s your chance. These twig votive holders are old-school Thanksgiving decorating and definitely something that you want to add to your décor this holiday season. If you’re not into twigs, you can also do this with cinnamon sticks which will give your home a wonderful holidays smell.
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.
These little pear turkeys are too cute, and this is a great project for the kids. You’ll need pears obviously, plus some craft paper and a few basic crafting supplies. You can use these to dress up the entryway table or create a centerpiece. You could also put name tags on them to personalize your place settings for Thanksgiving dinner. Oh, the possibilities!
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.).

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.


A custom banner posted in the yard can welcome guests to the event – truly useful, if they've never been to your house before. A fall centerpiece made of gleaming glass or pine cones and gourds anchors the display for the adult table. For the kids' table, honeycomb turkeys and color-your-own centerpieces add an element of fun. And for the living room and foyer, Thanksgiving cutout decorations, balloons, and wall signs remind anyone who may have missed the date (incredibly enough) that the feasting holiday is upon us.
Let the kids help you to create these adorable little pinecone turkeys. These are great for adding to any existing décor or for creating a centerpiece for the dinner table. Their little wobbly eyes are too cute, and they are really simple to create. Kids are absolutely going to love this project, and you’ll love the cheap and easy décor you get with these little gobblers.
