Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I have barely had enough time to take down the Halloween decorations, let alone decorate for the next holiday! So I decided to take it easy on myself and keep it simple this year. I hit up the dollar store and added a little holiday theme to my decor that was already in place. This way I can get into the holiday spirit without losing my sanity.
I purchased this strand of leaves from the Dollar Store and wrapped it around a hurricane candle holder that was already on my dining room table. I added a couple of flames less candles and have an instant centerpiece.
Usually I am not crazy about fake flowers in decorating but I stick to the philosophy that when decorating for the holiday’s, anything goes! I made an arrangement out of Dollar Store flowers and hot glued them together into a spiral at the base. I added a bow to finish off the look.
I really went all out with the fake flowers this year despite my usual taste. The Dollar store has so many to choose from for so cheap that I decided to try adding a pop of orange in my living room and placed one on each table. I just grabbed a handful and threw them in a vase, very easy to do.
I bought a bag of loose leaves and a mini jar candle. I already had some festive looking string laying around and I wish I knew what it was made out of but have no clue. I wrapped it around the candle and tied a pretty bow, placed it on top of some loose leaves and it is an easy way to bring attention to a dull area. Also candles are my favorite way to decorate because nothing puts me in the spirit of the holiday’s quite like the smell of a pumpkin pie, even if it is just a candle.
I bought a piano, not at the Dollar store…. I bought it last Summer with the intentions of getting my daughter lessons. We have not gotten around to that yet so instead the piano is a large item in my home that just takes us lots of space. So I decided to decorate it with a Fall themed table Runner I found at the local dollar store. At least the piano is serving a purposes now anyway.
I used a ribbon printer to make a Happy Thanksgiving ribbon and wrapped it around a candle. Simple but effective.
