After all, it’s that time of the year again when pumpkin spice is in the air…

Crisp fall weather calls everybody outside…

Leaves are changing and everything is preparing for a slower pace…

Family and friends gather…

And of course, you want your home to reflect the warmth, the tastes and the colors of the season.

Look no further, I have gathered for you 13 beautiful DIY Thanksgiving decorations to adorn your home with!

1.  Candle And Pinecone Arrangement

Found on Country Living.

Pretty decor can be as simple as grabbing a bowl, filling it up with pinecones and placing a tall, orange pillar candle in the middle.

You can also add a few small pumpkins or fill the candle jar halfway up with fresh cranberries. In that case, use ivory candles.

2.  Thankful Tree

gallon  jar

nuts and sticks

burlap and your choice of ribbon

chalk and chalkboard tags

Tutorial for this beautiful Thankful Tree is found on Simply VintageGirl.

3. Pumpkin Jars

Who said carved pumpkins are only good for Jack-O-Lanterns?

Jenny Steffens proves that a pumpkin can also function as your Thanksgiving vase. And boy, is this centerpiece gorgeous!

5. Cranberries and Candles

Idea found on First For Women.

Since fresh cranberries as in abundance during the Thanksgiving holiday,  fill up a few square candle holders and place a smaller ivory pillar candle in each.

6. Pumpkin Lanterns

To make the candle holder itself, all you need is a 1.5″ spade drill bit and a log. Looks complicated but it’s really simple. See full tutorial on Jenna Burger’s Blog.

12. Mason Jar Vases

It’s no secret that I love using Mason Jars for all kinds of things.

This decor idea takes it up a notch by painting the jars with chalkboard paint and adding cute resin charms to simple wooden tags.

13. Popcorn Candle Jar

Idea found on Passionate Penny Pincher.

If you are a candle fanatic like me, you can never have too many Thanksgiving decorations that include candles.

For this one, you’ll only need a glass jar of choice, unpopped popcorn, a pretty pillar candle and raffia. (If you end up with a lot of leftover popcorn, you can always use the kernels for a sensory tub, found in this post).

I hope you enjoyed this round-up of beautiful DIY Thanksgiving decoration ideas.
