Easy DIY Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Love it? Pls Share it!

This year spend less time preparing and more time with family and friends with these two super simple, creative, and budget-friendly DIY Thanksgiving centerpieces for your table.

A big part of Thanksgiving entertaining is setting a beautiful table to serve all your delicious food! Why spend hundreds of dollars and countless hours putting together a Thanksgiving table setting, when you can get a gorgeous look by shopping at your local dollar store, craft store and/or big box store, as well as using stuff you have at home?

I created two of my own Thanksgiving centerpieces in just a matter of minutes, and for well under $50 each.

DIY THANKSGIVING CENTERPIECE AUTUMN HARVEST THEME INSTRUCTIONS

Step One: Make Floral Centerpiece

Paint the milk can orange and allow it to dry. Then, using hot glue, attach the checkered ribbon around the neck of the can.

Once dry, fill the orange milk can with the faux flowers and pheasant feathers. Then place it in the middle of the table and surround it with large pinecones.

Step Two: Add Votives

On each side of the milk can, place a glass candle votive and surround it with 3 – 4 mini pinecones.

Step Three: Add Vases

Then, a few inches out from each votive, place the cylindrical vases filled with the faux pumpkins and gourds.

Step Four: Add Place Settings

Lastly, add your place settings, some name cards, and that’s it!

You have a lovely Thanksgiving table that brings in the warm colors of Autumn in just 15 minutes, and for less than $50!
