Yesterday, I began taking down my Halloween decorations & preparing my home for Thanksgiving. The process is not as hard as it sounds since both Halloween & Thanksgiving use pumpkins in their decorating themes! I enjoy adding seasonal touches to my home throughout the year. However, I do NOT enjoy spending a fortune on those decorations! To help keep my cost down(& in some cases non-existent) I make many of my own seasonal touches to use throughout my home. You can also easily add simple Thanksgiving pieces to your home this November when you create your own decorations. No idea where or how to begin? Country Living to the rescue with these easy to make Thanksgiving craft ideas. It really doesn’t take much to add beautiful seasonal touches to your home. Just a bit of time, imagination & Simple Joy!
Centerpieces make a lovely addition to your table, especially on special occasions like Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, centerpieces can be VERY expensive to purchase & often very hard to make yourself. Not a problem! Country Living has put together a collection of fall centerpieces that are beautiful AND effortless! I like to shop the $ stores for florals to save money on my centerpieces as well. When you can add inexpensive to the list, you can really be thankful!
Instead of decorating your home just for Halloween, use these Good Housekeeping ideas to create decorations that take you right through to thanksgiving.

Even in Southern California, we get to experience beautiful fall colors. The liquid amber trees lining the streets in Old Towne turn brilliant shades of orange & red to our neighborhood. While our fall colors aren’t as expansive as the rest of the country, they are still wonderful. How great is it that you can now bring those fall colors into your home with these craft projects from All You? People will be amazed you use leaves to create them & you will feel oh so clever for having made them. That sounds like a big win to me!
We tend to stick closer to home as the days grow shorter & the weather turns, first cooler and then cold. Those cooler evenings in the fall are a great time to work on craft projects.
