Short on time? Feel like its too difficult or you aren’t very crafty?? We put together a few super quick & easy DIY (do it yourself) decor ideas for Thanksgiving, FrugElegant Style of course! We love using lots of items from around the house, which we reuse season after season. Hope you can take these ideas & create some special Give Thanks decor for your home.
- Large frames with attached chicken wire, shown displayed on the mantle, have been used many times before for parties & room decor. Using painted clothespins clips, we attached faux leaves that we simply wrote a letter out with a sharpie marker. Spelled out “Be Thankful”. The other frame holds a wreath tied on with a fall ribbon. The small white frame holds a free printable we found online, simple and super easy to print on home computer & taped to the back of our frame.
- Using the sharpie marker, we wrote t h a n k s across small white pumpkins, on the mantle. Doesn’t it get any easier than that lol!
- “Give Thanx” written in chalk & framed, perched on a tray full of candles and pumpkins. Love the warm rich Fall colors. The frame has been used for the past 3 seasons & the only difference is the chalk written message & what is attached to the frame. We painted chalkboard paint onto the board but another easy option is to buy large chalkboard stick-ons.
- We have a tradition of sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner, saying grace, then each person saying what they are thankful for. This year, as our family & friends are having appetizers we will have our jar of thanks. Each person will write something they are thankful for. Then when we sit at the table for dinner, we can pass around the jar & we can each read one out loud. To create the jar, we used a chalkboard sticker & just hand wrote the words using a chalk marker. Tie some ribbon, jute string or raffia around the top with or without a Fall leaf ornament. The wooden craft sticks are spray painted gold and words are hand written with a sharpie marker.
It’s always a good time for some new traditions mixed with the old.
From our homes to yours, we wish you a very happy, healthy & wonderful Thanksgiving!
