Routines and schedules are comforting to me.  It's a relieving
thing to know that Mondays are for Repurposing.

Nature provides beautiful resources for
Thanksgiving decor and tablescapes:
Cut branches, a glue gun, and a strip of burlap were
combined to make a seasonal, rustic centerpiece. 

Apples, leaves, and votives - charming!

The simplest arrangements can be the most interesting.

Stacked baskets were ingeniously used
to make this stunning centerpiece.

Walnut halves make adorable individual salt and pepper holders.
Use gourds, pumpkins, and squash to serve hor d'oeuvres and small appetizers. 

You don't need fancy accessories to
delight your dinner guests:

Glass jars, white paint, and stencils were
used to make these beautiful Fall vases.

To make these adorable twine candle pumpkins, blow up small
balloons and wrap them with twine dipped in glue.  When the
glue is dry, pop the balloons and cut a small circle in the bottom
of each.  Pull the deflated balloons through the opening that will
hold the battery-powered candle.  Glue a twig in the top and -
voile - you have a lighted twine pumpkin.

Twine and plastic Easter eggs make cute acorn surprises:
Start a new tradition at your house this Thanksgiving - an acorn egg hunt!

Have your family and guests write what they're
thankful for on a Thanksgiving Tree.

Yes, repurposing is a great way to decorate for the holidays!


  1. Love those pumpkin candle holders and the pumpkin vase. Thanksgiving decor made from natural materials are the best.
    Happy Thanksgiving.
