Share |

Here are some simple, earth-friendly, and money saving ways to decorate your home for the holiday. Bring the beauty of the harvest season indoors with gourds, colored corn, or nuts place in a basket to display the decorations.

1. Take a nature walk and gather signs of the season from your own local environment to create a simple but beautiful nature’s harvest centerpiece. Gather found items such as Pine cones, colored leaves, seed pods, sea shells, colorful leaves, or dried flowers. Place your nature’s treasures in vases or clear bowls accented with a pretty raffia ribbon for a pleasing and naturally green centerpiece

2. Use soy candles for holiday lighting, make sure you keep flames away from little ones and use basic fire safety precautions.

3. For an extra touch fill a glass bowl with water and flower petals or seasonal grains, such as colorful corns and place a pillar candle in the center.

4. Create a thankful tree as a centerpiece; collect a small fallen tree branch from outdoors and place in a ceramic vase. Collect leaves of all shapes and sizes, using recycled paper trace the outline of the leaves, and cut to shape. leaving a space in the center for words- color the paper leaves with crayons or makers. Punch a small hole in the leaf and string with ribbon, string, or colored yard. Next think of those special things you are grateful for such as: family, nature, food, health, laughter, or special people in your life etc. Using a colorful marker, write one word on each”leaf” and hang from the tree. In addition you can use”leaves” as place cards and ask guests to add their own words to a leaf. Place your guests’ leaves on the thankful tree too!

5. Another easy “handy” and meaningful Thanksgiving decorating idea: trace your hand on colored paper and write notes of thanks to each guest, hang the colored hands with ribbon or yarn on chairs.
