I love a simple table with some rustic touches. Those small ideas that give my Thanksgiving table some farmhouse flair.
How to Create a DIY Thanksgiving Tablescape
I started this table with burlap! Yep! Just a roll of wide burlap purchased from Amazon and cut to length. The edges are already finished so you just need to sew the ends to prevent any fraying. The easiest tablecloth ever and it looks amazing.
I then layered on a plaid table runner. This is actually two place mats placed end to end. The centerpiece covers up the seam. I found the look I wanted in the place mat section instead of the table runner section so I went with it.
The Perfect Thanksgiving Tablescape Centerpiece
What kind of DIY Thanksgiving decorations would be complete without a centerpiece? I, of course, just had to use a mason jar. It looks gorgeous filled with tall fall foliage to give the entire thing some height.
I placed the jar down inside a fall wreath. This is a super simple way to make a Thanksgiving centerpiece in just minutes.
I love wheat in the fall! It is my favorite thing to decorate with. So, I just had to lay a couple of wheat bundles on the table to complete the look. It should be noted that we do buffet style at Thanksgiving so I can fill the table up with as many DIY Thanksgiving decorations as my heart desires.
DIY Thanksgiving Placesettings
