Cornucopia of Creativity: DIY Thanksgiving Table Decor

We’ve been hosting more & more family gatherings at our house and this year might be our first time hosting Thanksgiving! And, while the food is definitely the center of attention at the Thanksgiving table, I figured it might be nice to have some pretty decor too! So, I got to work on putting together some Thanksgiving Table Decor!

I got a few fun ideas for the decor after seeing these pendant glass pieces while shopping at Lowe’s (for our Halloween projects, actually):

For the display, I made a fabric table runner from remnants matching our curtain valences, filled a small wicker cornucopia with mini gourds (purchased at Lowe’s), laid out some Indian Corn (purchased at Lowe’s), made candle stands for GE Flameless Candles, and made vases out of the pendant glass pieces for some assorted fall (silk) flowers.


– (2) Fall-colored Pendant Glass

– (3) Flameless/LED candles of varying sizes

– (1) Package of Curtain Clip Rings (I used 6, approximately 3 inches in diameter)

– (2) 2-inch Cherry Caster Cups

– Hot glue gun

– various mini gourds/pumpkins, Indian Corn, fall foliage, etc.

DIY Thanksgiving Vases {made from pendant glass}


Remove labels from the two pendant glass pieces (I had to use Goo-gone to get them off). Hot glue one caster cup to the bottom of each of the glass pieces for added stability. That’s it!! Just note, these wouldn’t be suitable for fresh flowers with water! But, they’re perfect for the silk variety.  I love how pretty & unique they look! DIY Thanksgiving Centerpiece

DIY Candle Stands {made from curtain clip rings}


This is SO easy! Just pull out the wire hooks and hot glue the curtain clip rings together. Seriously, that’s it! I made a two-ring stand for the tallest candle, a three-ring stand for the shortest candle, and I just used one ring for the medium-sized candle. Then, just set the LED candles on top of the stands. And, that’s the beauty of it, you can make them as tall or short as you like. You could also tie some pretty fall/Thanksgiving-ish around the base of the candles. The thing I love about this project is that they could then be reused at Christmastime!

I love the completed look! What Thanksgiving decor do YOU have up?
