Thanksgiving, the occasion that gets everyone’s heart racing, no matter what age group you belong to.
It is a national holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. A grateful heart must express gratitude, and hence Thanksgiving began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. A day of appreciation and gratefulness for your loved one’s requires equally expressible ambience. What’s better than creating the crafts yourself and decorating your peaceful abode. Before you stress yourself out by reading the word DIY, let us tell you that we got you. Here’s a list of 20 fun and easy Thanksgiving DIY crafts in case you wish to do things on your own this year but don’t know how to.
Fall Themed Wreath
Did someone mention flowers? Switch up your boring flower arrangement and replace it with a green busy wreath on your entrance. Include magnolia leaves, vines and fall-themed flowers. Arrange it in a circular form and hang it on your door and boom! you’re done.
If you still have pumpkins sitting in your backyard, weeks after the spooky season. Instead of throwing them away, attach lace trims using hot glue, from top to bottom. Either let it sit in the pumpkin’s natural groove or create snowflakes or flowers, whatever suits your aesthetic!
Cinnamon Stick Name Card Holder
Nothing screams fall louder than cinnamon. Cinnamon coffee, cinnamon candy, cinnamon hot chocolate, everything cinnamon. Tie a red ribbon at the ends of a cinnamon stick and place it on the dinner plates. Each stick holds the name tag of the respective person seated against the plate.
As much as we all would like our tables to be filled with food, a centerpiece is a must on a Thanksgiving table. Instead of buying an expensive over the top centerpiece, scoop out the insides of a pumpkin and fill it with foam and flowers.
Go ahead and print the name of your guests on the napkins and write a reason as to why you’re grateful to them.
Thankful Mason Jars
Paint the inside of your mason jar with the color of your choice and fill it up with dried plants or trimmed wheat plants. Use it as a decor item or a mantelpiece.
Tie up neutral earth tone ribbons all-around a circular metal wire and stick on dried leaves and flowers too for that extra fall vibe. Hang it at the place where you can show it off to all of your guests.
DIY Party Favours
Send your guests home with something to remember the evening by and savour it later. You can opt for a mason jar filled with your favourite hot chocolate recipe and it’s ingredients or something spicy like cinnamon hot cocoa.
Who doesn’t love a beautiful handwritten card? Especially when it’s loaded with reasons why you’re thankful for someone’s existence. Go ahead, get creative and use all of your artistic capabilities.
Print out your favourite Thanksgiving giving quote or expression, frame it and hang it near your dinner table. It’s simple and easy but sure catches the eye.
Paper Napkin Rings
Well, if you cannot perform arts with your napkins by turning them into birds and whatnot, you can still make them look cuter. Print out your favourite phrases or write them in your handwriting and roll the paper around your napkin and ta-da you’re done.
Fall Themed Bookmark
Attach paper leaves or dried leaves on a craft stick and sprinkle some glitter for that extra shine. Now your guests will think of Thanksgiving whenever they put that bookmark in between their favorite book.
Embed beads forming words like ‘grateful’, ‘thankful’, ‘thanksgiving’ or whatever your heart desires, in a neutral tone strong to give off the fall vibe and present it to your guests after dinner. An ornament to remember the dinner by, so poetic!
Who doesn’t love desserts? Bake cookies and top them off with different toppings like white chocolate, dark chocolate, peppermint and half and half. Pack them in a mason jar with a cute note and you’re done.
A Succulent Plant
We all have that baby fever kicking in every time we see a cute baby. While you cannot bless your guests with babies you can always make them a plant parent. Stick paper leaves on the pot and write a thank you note over it. All of your guests will leave with a smile and a succulent plant.
That’s the thing about candy, you’re never too old to eat it. Fill orange colored balloons with candies and draw either a smiley or a spooky face on it to give that fall vibe. If you started watching your health after Halloween and still haven’t consumed those candies then this might be the best way to get them out of your sight and it is sure to put a smile across your guest’s faces.
Pumpkin Themed Mason Jars
Take mason jars of different shapes and sizes and paint them in different shades of orange. Fill them up with cinnamon flavored granola and hand it over to your guests before they leave.
Fall Themed Coasters
DIY a coaster in the shape of a pumpkin pie or an autumn leaf and write the name of your guest on top of it.
All you need is empty wine bottles, twine, hot glue and paper or cloth decorations. Stick the twine in a circular pattern all over the bottle using hot glue and stick the decorations for the final touch.
Hot Chocolate Balls
If you’ve been keeping up with the trends, then you must have seen this chocolate ball when dipped in hot milk, it melts releasing tiny marshmallows and cocoa powder. Well, guess what as excited as it gets you it’s even easier to make. Freeze melted chocolate in a half-circular mould and fill it with marshmallows and cocoa and stick the other half-circle using melted chocolate and you’re done. Wait till your guests are asking you for the secret on how you made it.
