Top your Thanksgiving table with decor items you can make at home.
Turkey day is right around the corner, so why not impress your family and friends with a home that's decorated to the nines? We're all for inflatable turkeys and harvest wreaths, but if you go all out on store-bought decorations, you might not have enough left over for the real centerpiece: the meal. You'll also give your home a personal touch if you put effort into making your own decorations. These easy, do-it-yourself decor ideas will spice up your space for the holiday without putting a dent in your wallet.
A Vegetable Centerpiece
For an easy centerpiece to top your table, cover a cake stand in corn husks and top with decorative corn, gourds, and fall leaves.
A Corn Husk Wreath
This gorgeous wall hanging requires a wreath frame, hot glue gun, and metallic gold pain. You'll wrap the frame in corn husks and paint the tips gold for a beautiful display. See the instructions at Country Living.
