Crafty Thursday: Thanksgiving Edition

It’s almost Friday AND one week until Thanksgiving!

This week’s Crafty Thursday will be about some cute DIY Thanksgiving projects that are easy and not time consuming so you can put your finishing touches on your home!

First, if you’re in need of a cute yet functional centerpiece for your dinner table this Thanksgiving? Then this DIY is perfect for you! All you need is:

  1. Some candles, 
  2. Fake leaves (definitely make sure they’re fake), 
  3. Burlap
  4. Twine 
  5. A plate to set them on

Then you just tie the burlap and/or fake leaves to the candle using the twine and voila! You can full post on this DIY at

Second,, if you want a little mat to go under your centerpiece or on a window sill near the dinner table, this craft would be perfect. You can have it say whatever you want for the Thanksgiving holiday “give thanks” is definitely a good phrase to use. All you need is

  1. Burlap
  2. Paint
  3. A paint sponge 
  4. An iron

 The picture gives a good step-by-step on how to do this. You just place the stencils, paint them, iron the area and voila! You have a cute burlap mat! You can find this DIY at

Third, I found a really cute sun catcher DIY. This craft is something you can do with your kids/nephews/nieces or if you have children coming to your house you can do this for them. What you’ll need for this craft is:

  1. Red, orange and yellow tissue paper
  2. Self laminating pouches
  3. Permanent marker
  4. Double sided tape
  5. Scissors
  6. Dry-erase marker (optional)

So first, you rip up the tissue paper (which the kids will love) and spread them flat on to the inside of the self laminating pouch; then seal it shut. Then it’s time to draw the leaves. You can find many templates online but if you or the children need practice then use the dry-erase marker until you get it just right. Then when you get it, you can go over it with the permanent marker. After you get the leaf drawn out, it is time to cut them out! Lastly, use the double sided tape to attach your new leaves to the window. Now you have a stained glass-esque window that will beautifully catch the sun. You can find this craft at
