We know how busy this time of year can be. Here’s 11 DIY ideas to get your home ready for Thanksgiving.
If you’re anything like Jenn and I, this is your favorite time of year. Fall is in full swing, the calendar is filling up with fun seasonal activities and holiday festivities. The only problem is we always seem to be too busy to enjoy it all. Every year we catch ourselves saying “next year we need to be better organized and do things ahead of time”.
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away? And don’t be mad at us because Thursday we are going to roll out our first Christmas idea. I know, I know – it is early. But you need the ideas early and ahead of time so that you can make them for yourselves. So for today let’s enjoy these 11 DIY ideas to get your home ready for Thanksgiving. Thursday will come soon enough 🙂 On the posts below, just click the highlighted blue links or the photos for the full tutorials.
Front Door Greeting
Make your Thanksgiving guests feel especially welcomed with a beautiful front door wreath. Jenn created this gorgeous Embroidery Hoop Wreath for a more unique look.
This Easy Fall Wreath is just that. It took just a few minutes to make and it continues to be one of our most popular posts.
Never under estimate the power of a candle
We love candles. The warm glow and flickering light set an immediate ambient tone for your home. Fragrance is a very personal choice for every individual. For us, especially at this time of year, we love spice.
We created these Spice Candles in Copper Mugs after seeing similar ones in a shop that were very expensive. They are unbelievably fragrant and beautiful.
The idea for this project was born in the grocery store produce section. I was like a crazy lady begging for cornhusks LOL. You’ll just need to read the original post.DIY Fall Votives with Cornhusks and Feathers.

These thrifted silver trays are perfect for this project. A chalkboard tray can be used in so many ways – as a greeting to your guests, a seasonal message or for your Thanksgiving menu. Silver Tray Chalkboard
