Elegant Thanksgiving Projects - Joy of Mom


We love doing crafts – both on our own and with our kiddos! And we really love homemade projects that are beautiful and exquisite, especially around the holidays. Take some time to indulge or explore your creative side and sprinkle special (and made with love!) DIY around your home for the Thanksgiving season.

Here are some really elegant crafts for your Thanksgiving table!

One. This beautiful leaf bowl from Fab DIY is made using hard drying glue, a balloon, a wedge brush and a lot of beautiful fall leaves. We love the combination of all the fall colors, and bringing nature into the house for a gorgeous decoration!

Two. Another project using leaves is this turkey leaf lantern from Rhythms of Play. These are adorable and would look great on a fall mantle or tablescape!

Three. Wow, this DIY falling leaves garland from House of Jade is stunning! It’s pretty enough to use as a focal decoration, but easy enough that a child could make it!

Four. This DIY Washi Tape Pinecone Turkey from Craftaholics Anonymous would make an adorable place setting at a Thanksgiving table. Using pinecones as the body, and popsicle sticks for the feathers, this craft is such a fun project for your kiddos to do!

Five. With autumn comes a lot of acorns all over your yard! We have a cute solution for your acorn overload. By allowing your children to paint the acorns, you can allow for a lot of creative freedom! Adding these acorns to a basket will make for the perfect fall decoration.

Six. Another painting activities for your little ones! Find leaves in the yard, have your children paint one side of the leaf, and press it onto a notecard. This makes such a beautiful design, and such a thoughtful notecard to send out during the holiday season!

We hope you simply love making these gorgeous crafts either with your family or on your own!
