DIY Decorations for Thanksgiving

Simple pleasures like sweet, crisp apples, brightly-colored Indian corn, and changing leaves all signify that the crisp air of autumn will soon be replaced by the winter chill. Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving outdoors or simply looking to welcome your guests with some seasonal color, décor should be simple yet stunning. Best of all, these easy-to-make DIY outdoor decorating projects will help hosts top their tables, trim their windowsills and deck their doors without cutting too much into precious culinary prep time.
