Easy Thanksgiving Table Decor

Sharing is caring!

Halloween might not be here yet, but I love looking ahead and planning for the other holidays.  Sometimes Thanksgiving gets a little overlooked because of all the Christmas frenzy, so I like to tie my Thanksgiving table decor into my generic fall decor, then it feels like it gets used all fall season.

This fall, I made my Thanksgiving Table Decor very natural and neutral.  I am in love with the way it turned out though.  I started out with a few faux pumpkins from the craft store.



When I first got them, they were dark green.  I decided the green wasn’t really for me, so I wanted to paint them.  I used DecoArt Chalky finish paint and painted them a light blue and a very light green.  Then I dry brushed some cream into the pumpkin grooves to make it look a little more realistic.  I also painted the stems with a gold leaf paint.


For little place tags, I thought it would be cute to paint these pinecones in sparkly metallic colors and hand letter each name.  I think it gives it a little elegance to a more rustic table setting.  It’s super easy to paint pinecones.

Brush a little paint on each tip with a couple coats.  Let it dry.  Handy dandy video below:

Then tie on a name card with some twine.  I just hand wrote the names with metallic marker.  And done!  When it comes to something like place cards, I can’t be bothered with something complicated or even something that requires me hooking my computer up to a printer!  So this cute idea hit the spot and was EASY cheesy.

I got this cute idea for Thanksgiving table decor and the pinecone place cards from my friend Kierste from Simply Kierste.  Check out this adorable tablescape she did!
