Thanksgiving is always a joyous time of year. You get to see family for the first time in months, you get to eat delicious food, and you finally get a chance to relax after a long year. So why not decorate for Thanksgiving to celebrate a wonderful time of the year. One problem that many people have is that store-bought Thanksgiving decorations can be overpriced; especially since the holiday only comes once a year! Luckily for you, the experts in property management Charlotte residents trust, TR Lawing, are in the Thanksgiving spirit and have come up with the following tips to create cheap and easy DIY Halloween decorations for your home.
Make a Simple Centerpiece
It is simple to make an autumn centerpiece for your dining room table. Simply repurpose any candle holders that you have! Remove the candles and use them to place gourds and small pumpkins on. If you have metallic candle holders, spray paint them black or brown to achieve a color pallet that best represents the fall.
Show What You’re Thankful For
Thanksgiving has its specific name for a reason – it’s a time of year when you should focus on the things that make your life fun and fulfilled. Show off that gratitude with a Thankfulness Tray. Use a tray you have laying around, adorn it with leaves, pumpkins, gourds, or earth tone fabrics, and then provide cards for family and friends to put in the tray. Everyone can list the things they are thankful for, and having a visual representation of all the things you have to be grateful for can be a handy reminder to enjoy your life.
While Christmas is a time for green and red wreaths, Thanksgiving is a time for wreaths comprised of browns, oranges, and golds. Use a grapevine wreath and then add browned leaves, pine cones, lotus pods, sticks, acorns, corn, and more to achieve a golden brown autumnal wreath to show that your home is in the holiday spirit.
To add even more of a Thanksgiving vibe, you can buy some cheap, plain orange Japanese lanterns. With some simple crafting, you can create some green leaves and a brown stem to make the lanterns look like glowing pumpkins!
