I can’t cook so Thanksgiving is always a little more anxiety inducing than enjoyable. Instead of baking something scrumptious or trying a new zesty recipe, I prefer to do the decorating, and the center piece for the dinner table is my favorite! I love to try new, fun ideas with items not always associated with Thanksgiving. I also try to work with natural items to bring the outdoors in, and of course, it is always nice to use free materials. After watching the DIY Network last weekend (quite possibly my most favorite channel), I decided to look up some inspiration online. Here are a few easy DIY Thanksgiving centerpiece ideas to help you create your own masterpiece.
