Hi friends! It’s November 1st, and that means the countdown to the holidays has begun! With Thanksgiving just 27 days away, I’m going to start sharing some Thanksgiving ideas. First, I’m going to show you how to make a Thanksgiving Decor Basket. Then, I’ll be sharing even more Thanksgiving inspiration from some of my blogger friends!
This is a super easy project! You’ll be done in just under 10 minutes. It would look great on a coffee table, kitchen counter or entry table. It’s a bit too large for a centerpiece, but I’ll be showing you how to make one of those too!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Large basket (mine is a round tobacco basket from AC Moore)
- Indian corn (I used 7 ears in various sizes)
- Small white pumpkins (I used 5)
- Small chalkboard & chalk or a Thanksgiving themed sign (I found mine at Michaels)
- Turkey (mine is a candle, but a ceramic figurine will also work)
- Charger (optional)
- Excelsior moss
If your basket has a lot of large holes like mine, put a charger in the bottom to help contain the moss.
Fill the basket with excelsior moss. Reserve some to fill in the bare spots later.
Arrange the Indian corn on the right side of the basket. It should cover about half of the basket.
Write a Thanksgiving saying onto the chalkboard sign and place it towards the back of the basket.
Place the turkey on the left side of the basket.
Fill in with pumpkins.
Tuck the reserved moss into any bare spots.
And that’s it! Put your Thanksgiving Decor Basket on a table and enjoy!
