Decorate to Celebrate Thanksgiving
With November finally here, we’re excited to begin decorating for Thanksgiving. Today we’re sharing a few of our favorite decorating ideas with residents of our 100 Memorial apartment community located in Cambridge, MA. Take a look through today’s post to see if there are any crafts that you’d like to try.
We love this Color Wrapped Wheat idea by Inspired by Charm. It looks like a great centerpiece! “It’s a simple and easy project, but it’s a beautiful way to add interest and a splash of color to your Thanksgiving table. And don’t worry, even if you’re not hosting the holiday feast, you can still whip up a few of these to decorate your space.” You’ll need dried wheat stalks, embroidery floss (in any color you’d like), and a pair of scissors. That’s it.
Have you ever put together a cornucopia? This decoration is perfect for Thanksgiving. We found a great tutorial on Thanksgiving.com. Check it out:
“Start with a simple wicker cornucopia basket, available at your local craft supply store. Aim to find one that is at least five inches tall at the mouth, so that you’ll have plenty of room to fill it with a variety of festive goodies.” For this project, you’ll need the following items: a large serving tray, colorful fall leaves (fake or real; they both work), straw, burlap fabric, and assorted fruits and vegetables — because these can spoil, you can always use fake fruits and vegetables.
This last decoration is one of the easiest we could find. Inspired by A Beautiful Mess, you can see this balloon decoration in the pictures of their 2015 “Friends Giving” celebration. Hanging up letter-shaped balloons are an easy way to decorate without making a huge mess. You can find these balloons on multiple websites, including partycity.com.
