This DIY fall wreath is perfect for Thanksgiving. Welcome your guests to your home with a festive first impression! Not only does it look lovely on your door, it also makes a gorgeous centerpiece for a table…just lay the wreath flat and position candles and food around it.
Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays of the year. It kicks off that “most wonderful time” of the year, right? I love when Fall hits, and every month is full of festivities, decorating, cooking, and celebrating. Thanksgiving is such a great holiday – there’s no pressure to buy presents, just getting together with family and friends to celebrate all that we are thankful for.
DIY Thanksgiving Fall Wreath
*Wreath frame (12 – 14″ depending on how big you want
the wreath to be; we used a cardboard frame)
*approximately 30 small indian corns
*hot glue and gun
1. Wrap burlap ribbon around wreath frame to hide cardboard. Hot glue ends to frame.
2. Position corn around wreath first – don’t glue yet.
3. Slowly hot glue the corn to wreath, trying to keep the opening circle in the center as perfectly round as possible.
4. Hang your wreath! Once it’s up, you can judge if any of the corn needs to be repositioned to make the center circle more perfectly round. It’s very simple to pop off the corn, reposition, and re-glue.
What are some of your Thanksgiving traditions? Decorating the table is a big one of ours. Honestly, this wreath may be the shining star of the table this year. You could even make 2 smaller ones to sit on either side of this big wreath on the table. Add a little height with candles and food, but as you know, you don’t want anything that blocks eye sight or conversation. So these flat wreaths would be ideal!
