Super Easy "Give Thanks" Home Decor Projects
Feel like it's too difficult to make? Or it will take too long? We put these few easy decor ideas together to help make Thanksgiving decor special. Using items from around the house that we reuse season after season.
Traditionally we go around the Thankgiving table asking each person to say what they are thankful for. This year we are going to change things up a little and use this Give Thanks jar. During appetizers everyone will take a moment to write what they are thankful for. During dinner, we will pass around the jar & the Thankful Messages can be read out loud. Good to mix old & new traditions!
This large frame was last used at a wedding. So for that it was painted gold & we love how warm the gold looks with these faux leaves (from dollar store). Simply wrote with a sharpie marker & each leaf together spells "Be Thankful".
Had this frame. Printed the saying, a free printable online, from our home computer. Taped it to the back of the frame- looks amazing!
Here is the full mantel. For the large white frame. Easily hung a plain box wreath & added a fall bow. Across the mental are small white pumpkins that spell out THANKS using a simple sharpie marker.
A large tray holds pumplins, candles, jars filled with potpourri & tiny pumpkins. The frame has been reused for the past 3 seasons. A simple frame with the board painted with chalkboard paint. Perfect for seasonally messages.
