Last year we started what we hope becomes a tradition on my Hubby’s side. We all got together (his brother & GF, His Mom & Dad and us) at our apartment and had a Thanksgiving Dinner as a family. This year, with our new house, I’ve been bursting with the desire to decorate our space in festive Holiday gilding. I say gilding because I’ve been obsessed with gold this season.

So, I did some searching for Elegant, Easy and DIY Thanksgiving decor. I’m so tickled with what I’ve found! Check them all out below!


In addition to the research I’ve done, I did create something all my own. Inspired by gold colored frames at the Dollar Tree and some pretty ribbon, I framed several fallen leaves to use on the bare walls in our dining space. In total they are very cheap and with the 8 that I made I’ve got plenty of big impact!

What You Need:

  • Dollar store gold frame
  • Backing paper (on hand)
  • Dollar store gold ribbon
  • Pretty leaf

How To Make It:

  1. Its simple! Cut your backing paper to fit inside the frame (I chose a cream color). Place the dried leaf on the glass, then the paper, and close up the frame! Finish with a hanging ribbon and your cheap and easy project can create an elegant effect.
