Sprinkle some personal touches on your Thanksgiving decorations this year! Make this annual celebration closer to your hearts by trying out DIY home decors that your family and friends would surely love and admire.
After a fun-filled Halloween blast, here comes another celebration that’s definitely worth waiting for — Thanksgiving Day! If there’s something I would never forget about Thanksgiving (aside from good food!), it’s the memorable laughter and spontaneous chit-chats of my family and friends while having dinner. That’s why my mother always makes sure that our table looks presentable and nice for the gathering. Well, cooking is her forte so there’s actually no struggle with food. (if you’re wondering)
But other than our dining table, I also remember furnishing our home with Fall decors when I was a teenager. Though I was not blessed with the most artistic hands, designing our house for the holidays like Thanksgiving became my happy pill. And now that I’m a young adult, my annual hobby still happens and luckily, I’ve got more sources to make it better.

While you might be too busy worrying about what to make, don’t forget to show your home a little love by decorating it with rustic pumpkins, beautiful hand-made centerpieces, and autumnal wreaths. Don’t worry ’cause for this list of Thanksgiving decorations, you don’t need to be a pro — a little creativity and resourcefulness go a long way, girls!
I’ve rounded up 10 great DIY projects crafters of all experience levels can have fun making. From branch candle holders to confetti stuffed turkey, these projects are a great way to have fun and be creative this weekend.
1. Paper Leaf Garlands
If you’re just getting into crafting (points to myself) you understand how a fun craft can easily turn into “I-can’t-believe-I’m-making-this” moment. You don’t have to worry about going Hulk with this project. This Thanksgiving decoration is easy to make. You can also add real fall leaves in between the paper cut outs to add accent and crisp to your garlands.
2. Festive Thanksgiving Printables
How adorable are these printables? (And inspiring too!) Maybe your utensils don’t need a sleeve, but why not go the extra mile this year and make every bit of the Thanksgiving experience fun for your friends and family? I guarantee your loved ones will always remember those cute utensil sleeves you made that one Thanksgiving. Learn how to make this Thanksgiving decoration today!
3. Leftover Pumpkin Decor
Still have leftover pumpkins from Halloween? Don’t throw them away! Paint them instead and re-purpose them as your Thanksgiving decoration. We love the bright and festive colors of these pumpkins and the best part about this project is that you can really customize your pumpkins however you’d like. Adorn them with some leaves and vines, put some candle on top and ta-dah! Who says a pumpkin’s purpose ends on Halloween, right?
4. DIY Thanksgiving Display
This DIY project might be a bit more difficult, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. I love the yellow and gold leaves I see during fall so why not upcycle it instead of just piling ’em up? Every bit of this display screams Fall so definitely take some time this weekend to celebrate this time of year and make this display! This is also an eye-candy for your kiddos and they might ask to take home these cuties too!

This centerpiece is super simple to make and will look elegant and captivating on the table. Impress your friends and family with this fall-inspired pumpkin centerpiece.
6. Turkey-Inspired Drinking Glasses
This is definitely my favorite DIY Thanksgiving project. Not only is this baby cute in real life, it also makes for a creative Instagram photo. Such a nice art while enjoying a sip! Just be ready to prepare some bottomless drinks too!
7.DIY Autumn Leaf Bowls
The classic melted bead bowl gets a Fall makeover! This bowl is great any time of the year, but since it is Fall, it only makes sense to make this now. Now this one of the DIY Thanksgiving decorations I can make as in –now.
8.DIY Confetti Stuffed Turkey
Make this confetti-stuffed turkey if you miss bright, vibrant colors during Fall, never fear! This confetti-stuffed turkey is super cute and really fun! Who says you can’t sport neon pink and yellow come the holiday months?
