November has certainly been going by fast; it’s hard to believe that we’re already nearing the end of the month. Pretty soon, we will be celebrating one of the best American holidays— Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays of the year, especially because it means piles of delicious food and time to spend with friends and family. If you’re looking for a way to spruce up your Thanksgiving, read on ahead to see some DIY tutorials that will make your Thanksgiving dinner stand out.
1. Apple Candles
While we hate the idea of wasting any kind of food, this idea of apple candles is too cute to pass up. All you have to do is core the inside of the fruit and insert the candle, and you’ll have yourself a Thanksgiving decoration that fits in perfectly at the dinner table.
2. Nailed it
There is nothing more adorable than this Thanksgiving-inspired nail art complete with turkeys and colorful leaves! We especially love the bright colors in this tutorial, but switching it out to a classy black and gold color palette works for a fancy Thanksgiving dinner as well.
3. Pumpkin Art
For those of you who have yet to throw out your festive pumpkins from Halloween, this easy DIY is perfect for your holiday dinner! Just follow the directions below, and you’ll have yourself a porch decoration that will last you till the rest of fall.
4. Holiday Wreath
We love a door decoration as much as the next person, but this “Give Thanks” holiday wreath really takes the cake! After Thanksgiving, we plan on taking down the sign in the middle so we can use it for Christmas as well.
5. Crust Cookies
No Thanksgiving DIY list is complete with a recipe, so we’ve included our favorite “crust cookies”. These cookies are super easy to make, which makes it the perfect activity to do with your kids, and altering the recipe to fit your personal tastes isn’t too hard either…
