7 DIY Thrifty Thanksgiving Decorations

Decorating for the holidays can be stressful, especially when you’re on a budget. But it doesn’t have to be. The holidays should be fun and bring joy to your home, so we came up with a list of decorations you can make from items around your home and from the Dollar Tree. You can do this!
#1 - Pallet Turkey
Wood pallets aren’t difficult to get a hold of, and you might even have one or two just sitting in your garage. Now it’s time to put them to use. Recycle your old pallets and turn them into a turkey for Thanksgiving. Try this example from Crafty Morning. Once it’s built, you can paint it, or leave it just the way it is. It will make a great decoration for the front porch or lawn.
#2 - Pilgrim Hat Centerpiece
Try this dollar store centerpiece for size. If remembering the history of Thanksgiving is important in your home, you might want to decorate items from the pilgrims. Find the full tutorial for this centerpiece at Hip 2 Save, and create the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table.
#3 - Fall Candles
Class it up with some rustic fall candles. All you need is some fake leaves, burlap, twine, candles and a plate. You can find all of these at a dollar store or thrift store, and you might even have some of these in your own home. Find the full tutorial at That’s What Che Said.
#4 - Fall Hurricane
This beautiful, candle-lit hurricane can be made for less than $5 and makes a great shelf or table accessory. All you need is two glasses vases, a candle, moss, and garland. This piece brings a little bit of nature into your home. Find the full tutorial at How to Nest for Less.
#5 - Seasonal Wreath
Really reign in the season with this beautiful wreath. Get the base, a leaf garland, leaf bunches, and fake gourds from your local dollar store. Get creative and make it your own. Find this tutorial at House of Hepworths.
#6 - Tabletop Candle
This project from Namely Marly can easily be customized by switching out the acorns for another fall filler like colored marbles or pearls. You can get a small vase, tea lights, and a filler at a dollar store, and these take almost no time to make!
#7 - Thankful Jar
All you need is a jar or vase, piece of ribbon and some vinyl letters to make this idea a reality. Place this thankful jar in your living room or at the table for your family to share what they are thankful for throughout November, and then read them all on Thanksgiving.
