7 Easy Thanksgiving DIY Projects

Everyone may already be thinking about Christmas, but we’ve got Thanksgiving on the brain. We love getting together with our families, remembering what we’re thankful for, and eating a lot of really delicious food. It’s also a great time to flex those DIY muscles, especially if you’re not the type to spend half the day in the kitchen. We’ve pulled together our 7 favorite Thanksgiving DIY projects to help you make your holiday decorating both easy and personalized.

Apple Votives

These are adorable and easy to make. The best part is, you can easily cut away any wax that gets on the fruit and use them for a post-holiday pie!

The Thankful Tree

Invite your family and guests to contribute to the Thankful Tree as they arrive. Have a few already filled in before they arrive so guests can be inspired and find out what you’re thankful for this year.
