Thanksgiving Decor Crafts

Felt Fall Leaf Garland | Red Circle Crafts

For me, Thanksgiving is a time for food and family, chosen or the one you were born to. I've seen some intense table decor for this holiday, but I always think that it doesn't leave any room for food. I prefer Thanksgiving crafts that will make a home feel inviting, warm, and cozy, the perfect place for your family to gather, but don't get in the way. I don't want my decor to be the focus of the gathering.

Some simple things you can do to add light and festivity to your home for the beginning of the Holiday Season (yes, it deserves capitalization):

Juniper and Bittersweet Rake Wreath from Better Homes & Gardens I love this non-traditional wreath idea from Better Homes & Gardens. It adds color and definitely a fall feel.

DIY Calligraphy Leaf Name Cards from the Fledgling SongAs a kid, it was my job to set the table. I took great pride in arranging everything and adding my own touches. These DIY Calligraphy Leaf Name Cards from The Fledgling Song are definitely something I would have done and it would be a great project to keep kids busy and out of the kitchen on Thanksgiving.

Leaf Napkin RingsI love these plaster leaves so much that I made them into Christmas Ornaments last year. Find the tutorial to make them as napkin rings on Design Mom.

DIY Twig Candle HoldersIt's getting darker earlier and earlier. Adding light through decor seems to be a theme this time of year. I try to use natural materials as much as possible for crafts. You could take this even further and use upcycled peanut butter jars (or jam jars or chipped glasses) instead of glass candle holders to make these twig candle holders found on Homedit.

The first image is from my Felt Fall Leaf Garland that I made last fall.
