Hosting a big Thanksgiving dinner this year? Looking to decorate your table in style? We’ve got you covered! From autumn leaves and pumpkins to cornucopias and rustic candle holders, these DIY Thanksgiving centrepieces are sure to impress.

1. DIY Leaf Bowl 

This easy to make DIY Leaf Bowl requires a minimal level of crafting ability for a maximum payoff when placed in the centre of your table. While you can fill it with anything you like, autumn coloured flowers, wheat or pomegranates look especially festive. All you’ll need to complete this project is some modge podge and fall inspired synthetic leaves.

2. Geometric “Thank You” With Gilded Fruit 

This versatile wooden block centre piece idea is perfect if you are looking to add some whimsy to your dining table. If you’re into more modern decor, this one may be the DIY for you because it’s easily customizable.

3. Autumn Log Candle Holder 

This 5-minute log centre piece brings the outdoors in for a rustic style that perfectly compliments Thanksgiving festivities. This is also ideal for someone who has a long table and doesn’t want to have to make more than one centrepiece.

4. Apple Candles

These apple candles can be scattered across the table to create a glowing homey feel to go along with your Thanksgiving dinner. This DIY costs next to nothing and is easy to accomplish –  all you have to do is get the apples and give them a little bath in apple cider vinegar to keep them fresh!

5. Lace Up A Pumpkin

For those who love vintage inspired decor, this DIY Lace Pumpkin could be just what you’re looking for. You can also match the lace to the colour of your existing decor for a really pulled-together look. This is also an easy DIY for those looking to spend less time making decor and more time cooking dinner!

6. Vegetable Vases

These DIY Vegetable Vases are unique and not what you would expect to see at a Thanksgiving dinner table – and that’s what makes them so special! Choose some seasonal veggies and core them out to put in candles and add some of your favourite flowers.

7. Recycled Book Pumpkins 

If you have a book that’s no longer of use to you, you can turn it into a fairy tale autumn decor centre piece. Consider doing this recycled pumpkin DIY with your kids and family before the big Thanksgiving event for some added family fun.

8. Make a Cornucopia

One option for the Thanksgiving traditionalist (as well as any bakers out there) is the make-it-yourself Cornucopia . While it may seem a little more complicated at first, this DIY centrepiece is very straight forward. We recommend turning it into a charcuterie cornucopia and adding your favourite meats, cheeses and preserves. 

We hope these ideas have inspired you to add a touch of personal flair to your Thanksgiving table. If you’re looking for other great DIY ideas, check out our previous posts on DIY decor for the kitchen and bedroom!
