Let’s dive straight in!
- Dollar store pumpkins and candle holders via Modern Sanctuary
You wouldn’t know it, but the candle holders and pumpkins used in this set up are all from the dollar store. Spray painting them in coordinating, metallic colors achieve the high-end look. Repurposing antiques or preloved finds, such as the lantern featured here, is a great way to add accessories for an heirloom feel.
- Chinoiserie wrapped pumpkin centerpiece via Stone Gable Blog
All you need for these beautiful Thanksgiving pumpkins is some cocktail napkins and Mod Podge.
- DIY copper-wrapped candles via Design Improvised
Rose gold is still one of our favorite colors for fall decorating. This pretty idea uses flameless LED candles so you don’t need to worry about melted wax spoiling the effect.
- Faux pumpkin DIY Thanksgiving centerpiece via Unoriginal Mom
This tutorial gives a timeless makeover to the pumpkin-vase with a neutral white pumpkin, some florist foam, and faux stems.
- Geometric block centerpieces via A Practical Wedding
If you hate straining to see your guests around tall flower arrangements, these blocks are the ideal low and long centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table. The elegant gold looks expensive too.
- Easy burlap table runner via The Seaman Mom
A simple runner will make the entire table look more put together, and a low-cost burlap one like this is full of classic, farmhouse style.
- DIY Thanksgiving centerpiece via Craftaholics Anonymous
This versatile rustic stand cost just $5 to make and could be used at any time of year just by changing what you put in it.
- Fall hurricane centerpiece via How to Nest for Less
This project makes a cheap DIY hurricane jar by placing a smaller glass vase inside a bigger one – we think it’s a genius idea.
- Planter box centerpiece via The Idea Room
We love these wooden boxes for keeping decorations out of the way of other things on the table. This budget DIY project shows you how to make the box itself, but you could use any distressed crate or planter that you have.
- Cinnamon candle holders via Home Stories A to Z
These cinnamon candles take less than 20 minutes to put together and will smell amazing too. You could reuse these for a Christmas mantle afterward. Using flameless candles is the best way to ensure no waxy mess and preserve your decorations to use again.
