DIY Thanksgiving table decor from your backyard? Yes!
How’d I do it you ask? I shopped my back yard last week, and found lots of sticks, twigs, foliage, leaves, and pinecones, and decided to spray paint and repurpose them into a few different Thanksgiving table decor settings.
It turned out beautifully and on budget — I plan to use this method each year. You just can’t beat free!
Here’s my haul.
To start, I spray painted the leaves and foliage, and left the pinecones natural. The tree slice is painted a vibrant hue on one side, and natural on the other side — I opted for the natural side in this setting to keep it simple. Finally, I laid everything out on some burlap fabric.
To set it up, I placed the pumpkins toward the center of the table, then added the rest of the elements from there. Simple and easy.
This one has a similar feel, but I replaced the two large plastic gold pumpkins on the wood slice with a cloche full of six pinecones. I wanted to mix them up, so there are two natural, two metallic gold, and two copper gold spray painted pinecones.
