DIY Thanksgiving Centerpiece Ideas That Celebrate Fall

Thanksgiving may be right around the corner, but it’s not too late to put together some table décor! Though the turkey is the traditional star of the food-filled holiday, a centerpiece can go a long way to complete your dinner display. And fear not- they’re super simple to make! Here are a few DIY centerpieces for inspiration.

Grocery Store Chic

Amy, author of Kenmore’s inspiration blog, added some color to her Thanksgiving table with mini pumpkins and gourds from a local grocery store. Because the design isn’t holiday-specific, feel free to display this DIY through the rest of fall.

Jennifer of Celebrating Everyday Life added some unexpected elements to her grocery store spread- artichokes and pears. Mini pumpkins and autumn-hued roses complete this colorful centerpiece.

Kelly of Santa Barbara Chic skipped pumpkins altogether when creating this gorgeous arrangement. Though floral regulars such as dahlias appear among the bright-colored bunch, the persimmons steal the show.

Jessica of Jessica Burns knows inspiration can come from anywhere. In this case, it was the produce section of the grocery store! Whole cloves and pears complete this typographical DIY.

A Candlelit Affair

When making this wooden box centerpiece, Courtney of Golden Boys and Me took a simple approach. A few wood planks and some dark stain were all it took for this stylish and versatile box. Add some candles and fall floral elements and you’ll have your own autumn-inspired centerpiece.

Equally stunning and rustic, this centerpiece from Mary of Fat Bird Designs did a little twist on the traditional candle display. Instead, she relied on hidden LED lights to give a glow to her DIY.

Featured on The Sweetest Occasion, this centerpiece combines reclaimed wood and candles for an instantly classic centerpiece. Feel free to use this DIY year after year- just swap out the candles for season-appropriate colors.

Simple Design

Featured on Graphic Made, this fall-inspired centerpiece pays homage to the season’s natural elements. A plus- the pieces are all artificial, which means you can use this display year after year.

Clean and simple is the name of the game for this centerpiece DIY by Julie of Coordinately Yours. If you want to avoid the traditional color scheme of Thanksgiving centerpieces, this DIY is for you.

Looks for Less

Inspired by an expensive department store item, this DIY by Robyn of The Pink Peony of Le Jardin shows you don’t have to pay top-dollar for beautiful Thanksgiving décor. In fact, this mini ship cost only $5 to make- a holiday steal in any book!
