Top 5 Cute & Easy Ways To Decorate For Thanksgiving

Hooray for Turkey Day...

Alas, Thanksgiving in the states is almost here and I am EXTREMELY excited about it. It's one of the few times a year you come together and celebrate with family, drink eggnog, drink bourbon, eat sweet potato pie, drink bourbon - yes, I know I've said that twice.

Although I am mentally prepared for Thanksgiving, my home is not and I am expecting a few guest that week. Being that it is last minute, I searched high and low for some really easy, cheap, yet cute decorations I can put in my home. And boom - just like that, I've found a million-bajillion adorable and easy ways to decorate for Thanksgiving, but for the sake of this post it's narrowed down to five.

So *drumroll* here are the top 5 cute and easy ways to decorate your home for Thanksgiving.

1) painted wine bottles

I really love the idea of spray painting glass bottles, and especially wine bottles. This is perfect for the bar area or a centerpiece on a small table. Plus, who doesn't have wine bottles on deck?

All you would need is:

Wine Bottles

Spray Paint

Twine/Raffia

Acrylic Paint for wording

Planning It All has the deets on these beautiful spray painted bottles. 

2) Checkered pumpkins

These checkered pumpkins from Wonder Forest are seriously the cutest pumpkins I have ever seen! I love that this DIY is flexible to make it your own.

This will be ideal for an end table for hallway centerpiece or stand. 

3) Autumn Leaf mason jar candle holder

Spark & Chemistry created the perfect addition to a mantel. These leaf jar candle holders are adorbs, and will cost under $5 if you do not have the materials lying around the house. 

This is definitely a kid friendly DIY and I would love to have my toddler as a hands on helper with a few of these.

4) Thankful Photo board

This is by far my favorite. A DIY Thankful Photo Board is a wonderful way to display all of your loved ones and show them that you are thankful for them. Shanty 2 Chic provided step-by-step details on creating this display, in addition to, free printable letters.

This could be a year round wall display and not just a seasonal decor item.

5) Leaf Bowl

The leaf bowl- so very cool! This DIY is so simple, cheap, and creative. A leaf bowl is a very neat statement piece for Thanksgiving. It would be no surprise if the majority of your guests ask you, "Where the heck did you find that?" Totally in a good way.

This would make for an appropriate candy dish, trinket bowl, or you can put pine cones inside for display.
