Create a DIY Thanksgiving wreath for you and your guests to enjoy when they walk through the front door. You have the food and plans prepared, but what about your decor? This list has got you covered!
The Thanksgiving holiday is a fun-filled holiday full of food, friends, and fun. It is the only holiday where it is okay to show up with your stretchy pants on and ready to eat some delicious food!
There is a bit of planning that goes into this holiday. Running to the grocery store to get all of the ingredients, pulling out your best china, and planning your guests’ schedule.
You have everything ready to go, but you’re probably missing one thing – the decorations. This is a minor forget and an easy fix.
Wreaths for the Holiday Season
Fall is the time for crafting, decorating, and DIYing. The crafting industry sees a huge boom during the season because it kicks off all the major holidays. And Thanksgiving is one of my absolute favorites.
With these DIY wreaths, you could throw together one to go on your front door for your guests to see, one for the kitchen for aesthetics, and one in the bathroom for a fall touch, and more.
Of course, you don’t have to make multiple – a simple front door wreath is perfectly fine!
If you don’t want to settle for just basic fall decor this year, spice it up for the holidays celebrated throughout (yes, all of them)!
To get started with your holiday decor, here’s a handful of super cute DIY Thanksgiving Wreaths to inspire you to dive deep into holiday decor this year!

1. Give Thanks Grapevine Wreath
Grapevine wreaths are widely popular amongst holiday wreaths because they are so easy to decorate and pretty inexpensive too! You can find them at any local craft store ready to go.

FAQs about Thanksgiving Wreath Ideas
Many people ask this question, Fall and Thanksgiving have similar tones and styles, so how do we determine which decor is for Fall and which one is for Thanksgiving?
Fall is a season with an abundance of styles included in it. You can use multiple color palettes to create a fall wreath. Some decor ideas are leaves, pumpkins, and acorns.
For Thanksgiving, it is a bit more specific. Thanksgiving decor will have items such as turkeys, cornucopias, and colors such as brown, white, yellow, and tan.
If you are wanting an easy DIY wreath, you should start with a grapevine wreath form and add a few embellishments. There are many examples online of how you can make a simple and elegant wreath using one.
Adding decor items in neutral tones is a great way to create a simple wreath. The key is to have the colors compliment each other rather than stand out.
You can find an abundance of wreath embellishments in your local craft stores and even places like Walmart and Target’s Dollar Spot.
Hundreds of options are also available at online retailers like Amazon and Etsy.
