Last minute ideas for your Thanksgiving table
If you're hosting Thanksgiving at your house this year, chances are you're pretty stressed right now. There's a lot to get done—from cooking the turkey to ensuring that your house looks spotless. If you've overlooked decorations, there's no need to worry. We've got you covered with a few last minute DIY decor ideas perfect if you want to enlist the help of your little ones.
- DIY tablecloth: If you forgot to purchase a tablecloth big enough for your extensive dinning room table, don't fret! "A length set out as a tablecloth or runner immediately calls forth a rustic, cozy look, and you can usually find it for under $5 a yard," states Megan Arquette, blogger for P&G Everyday. "Creating the same look with inexpensive Butcher paper is another fantastic tablecloth alternative."
- Paint: Pick up some spray paint from the local craft store and take your old Halloween pumpkins from drab to fab. As long as the pumpkins haven't rotted already, this is a great way to make use of them. Spray paint the gourds with gold, bronze or silver paint for an especially trendy look.
- Take a nature walk: Taking a walk outside can help you cool off, especially if you're feeling anxious while making preparations for tomorrow. While your at it, browse your backyard for potential decorations, such as acorns, fall foliage and branches, which can all be used to create stylish fall decor.
