Thanksgiving Centerpieces and Wreath: Go Natural!!

Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away! With so much to plan for the Thanksgiving dinner, let me help with the decoration :) Go natural and find inspiration in the selection here to help create you very own personalized centerpiece and wreath. Crafting is a great stress buster and will enjoy the simple pleasure of creating and display.

There are different levels of difficulty but with even a few hours you can make a gorgeous table setting or a simple center piece. Hope you find some inspiration here!

Carve a pumpkin to look like a basket, insert a bowl, place a flower foam. Add flowers and candles, some berries and leaves, done! Its a simple but beautiful craft idea.


Next trip to the farmer's market look for colorful corns. A vintage wire basket, scented pine cones and a bunch of corn is all you would need. Finish with a broad gingham ribbon for a cottage chic appeal!


Fill an egg basket with wheat sheaf. Lay some corn and you have an all natural centerpiece for Thanksgiving table setting. Color coordinate for a more sophisticate look.


This looks like a vase/pot or small bird bath, but use your imagination! Fill some gravel/pebbles, add a few branches of red berry, fall leaves and small thank you notes for the family.


Love this Martha Stewart craft. Corn husk wrapped around dollar store votive and ribbons. Natural texture of husk and soft rose petals together is so unique. Frugal and fun!


Fill tall votive with wild rice or any gains. Add some dry branches, hang string tied small pumpkins. Place them in a mix of pine cones, red berries, pumpkins and moss pebbles. Prettiness!


A simpler version, pillar candles in traditional fall colors, decorative branches/vines, pumpkins and berries. Autumn leaves on the napkins looks absolutely in sync too.


Wheat sheaf look so pretty by themselves. For a minimalistic uber chic look put hem in tapered vase and add color coordinated pillar candles. Sometimes less is more!


A simple table runner decorated with lovely fall elements. A basic candle stand flanked by leaves and fruits. Remember some bold additions can elevate the entire look.


If you have absolutely no time to create or are in a hurry, even a small posy of wild flowers can cheer up the decor. Natural rustic is also a coveted style. Sweet surprise :)


Amazing wreath made of succulents! A mesh cone, fill it with fine gravel and planting medium. Add small succulents and plants. This should thrive the season and plant them in soil when they grow big.


A vintage inspired chicken coop wire and old frame wreath. Staple a piece of wire mesh to an wooden frame. There are so many possibilities, memo card holder, display holiday cards, or earrings holder. Love!
