DIY Touches For Your Thanksgiving Table

Looking to add a personal touch to your Thanksgiving decor but your craft skills haven’t progressed much beyond the hand-turkey drawings you made in grade school? Here are a couple simple DIY ideas to get your creative juices flowing and help make your holiday a warm and memorable experience.

Twig Candle Votives:

Armed with a few simple glass votives, hot glue, twine, a collection of twigs, and colorful fall leaves, you can quickly create these beautiful candle displays and add a lovely rustic-elegance to your Thanksgiving table. Pop in a tea light and they’ll instantly give off a warm and festive atmosphere. And, best of all, with a simple substitution of evergreen sprigs in place of leaves, they can easily carry you over to the wintery holidays.

While you’re out gathering fall foliage for your votives, you might as well grab a leaf for each guest. Simply write the guest’s name on the leaf and you have a clever and simple place card!
