Thanksgiving Day Crafts

This month, we’re inviting all residents of our Verde at Howard Square apartment community of Baltimore, MD to get a little crafty. We’ve compiled a few of our favorite decorations that are perfect for Thanksgiving! Check them out below. Are we missing your favorite decor ideas? Share them in the comments below today’s post.

One of the greatest things about this time of year is all the holiday smells. As we were researching a few DIY projects that focus on these favorite scents, we found these Cranberry Apple scented candles as well as this Falling Leaves candle for sale. This made us think “Why not share a DIY candle idea?” We found some easy-to-follow instructions for DIY Pumpkin Scented Candles.

This Color Wrapped Wheat project by Inspired by Charm really surprised us. We think it looks great! Do you? “It’s a simple and easy project, but it’s a beautiful way to add interest and a splash of color to your Thanksgiving table. And don’t worry, even if you’re not hosting the holiday feast, you can still whip up a few of these to decorate your space.” You’ll need dried wheat stalks, embroidery floss (in any color you’d like), and a pair of scissors.

Of all the decor ideas that we looked through, this Autumn Leaf Mason Jar Candle Holder is our favorite! You’ll need the following items: Mason jars, Mod Podge, Autumn faux leaves, sponge brush, and tealight candles. Simply clean the outside of the jar with rubbing alcohol. Bend the leaves a little to gain a better stick. Then dip your brush in the Mod Podge and paint a thin layer on a section on the jar. Take a leaf and press the middle of it against the painted surface. You can use your fingers to smooth out the leaf to help it stick better. Add more Mod Podge and repeat until the jar is covered how you want it. After the Mod Podge is dry, place the tealight inside.
