10 Easy Thanksgiving Wreath Ideas
Trust me when I say that can you make these Thanksgiving Wreaths within an hour. Don’t have fresh flowers? Use fake instead. Don’t have leaves? Use paper leaves instead. Don’t have paper? Use burlap? Shh! We aren’t going to disclose everything here.
Go through all these once and I am quite sure you’ll want to make all of them at home.
1. Paper Cone Thanksgiving Wreath
Take some brown and cream-colored paper. Make small cones and paste them on the metal ring. Decorate it with wheat husk and golden pearls. When your guests arrive, ask them to write something they are thankful for and put those small notes in these cones. After dinner, you can take these notes out and read them.
2. Paper Leaves Thanksgiving Wreath
If you have a book that you have no intentions of keeping then you can use them in a better way (although you should never tear a book). Or you can print some pages of whatever book you like and cut those pages in the shape of Chinar leaves. Now take dull orange and brown colored sheets and paste the printed book leaves on them. When you paste it in a circular fashion and hang it on your door, it will truly vibe with the autumn season.
3. Hydrangea Wreath For Thanksgiving
If you don’t have Hydrangea flowers then you can get some faux ones from your local craft shop. Cut their stems and stick them on the basic natural wreath. The fuller look will truly look amazing, I mean, when have flowers looked wrong at a festival?
4. White Pumpkin Blessed Wreath
This Pumpkin Blessed Thanksgiving Wreath will make your guests feel truly blessed. If you don’t have a blessed piece then you can make it yourselves. Just write the words on a sheet, make bold lines, and cut them. Take small white pumpkins and paint them white. I am sure you have some left from the Halloween pumpkin patches.
5. Apple Grapevine Thanksgiving Wreath
Grapevine Wreaths are pretty popular in the Thanksgiving season. You can easily get your hands on it. Just put some apples or small fruits on it and if they fall you can stick them with hot glue. Hang it on your windows and be that chic person with the best home decor.
6. Abundance Pinecone Thanksgiving Wreath
At the beginning of this article, I told you how to make a basic Thanksgiving wreath. If you don’t get silk leaves or any particular beautifying item, then you can simply take one of them (either pinecones, acorns, or leaves) and fill your wreath with this only. Since Thanksgiving is an occasion that celebrates abundance, this fuller look will definitely go with that idea.
7. Give Thanks Grapevine Wreath
A simple grapevine wreath is more beautiful than the extravagant wreaths that the big stores offer. You can keep a “Thankful“, “Blessed“, or “Give Thanks” word plate in the middle and it will look simply chic. Also, grapevines are usually warm in colors, like red and yellows so don’t be extra colorful with the color of your words.
8. Pom Pom Thanksgiving Wreath
There are literally hundreds of DIY Pom Pom making videos on YouTube. Just watch one or two, practice a bit with your kids, and take around 30-40 Pom Poms. Take a long thread in a needle and put all the pompoms through the thread. When you have a long thread of Pom Poms wrap them around the metal ring and stick them with the hot glue. Tadaa!! your Thanksgiving Wreath full of Pom Poms is ready.
9. Corn Husk Wreath
Peel around 18-20 dried corns and stick the husks on the back of corns as shown in this picture. Make sure you color coordinate the corns a little bit. Place all the dried corns over an 18” craft ring and place this wreath outside your main door on Thanksgiving.
10. Autumn Burlap Wreath For Thanksgiving
Okay, you don’t have any pinecones or acorns, neither do you have any silk leaves. What would you do? Take some old burlap, firstly clean it (if it is dirty) Then cut around 10-15 rectangular pieces and pint 3 yellow, and 3 orange. Once the burlap pieces are all dried, take the metal ring and wrap them around it. You can use thread to secure the burlap on the ring. Use Halloween pumpkins to decorate. Or decorate with whatever you have.
