It’s no secret that I love fall. I refuse to put up any Christmas decorations until the days after Thanksgiving. I like to decorate my house inside and out with fall leaves, pumpkins, and scarecrows. My home decor already uses a lot of orange, red and yellow, so fall decor fits in naturally. I guess some of that mentality has carried over to my crafts because my mind is definitely still on leaves, not holly. Not yet anyway! This is especially true for my dining room table. So, I’ve curated this fun list of 20 Crafts for Your Thanksgiving Table that you and your family can make together.
20 Crafts for Your Thanksgiving Table
Cloth Napkins & Tablecloths
I absolutely love fabric napkins and tablecloths and if there is any holiday when you want to bring out your nicer linens, it’s Thanksgiving. A lot of times, however, solid, muted colors need a little more of a creative flair. You have to see all these stamped fabric napkins plus a new, special tradition for your tablecloth for inspiration.

Hi, I’m Marie. I’ve been obsessed with crafting for most of my life. I love to experiment with new crafting techniques as well as making the classics. Over the years and after three kids involved in various activities, I discovered my other passion, event planning. I love making my own decorations and styling rooms for parties. I’m at my happiest when I can combine crafts and party styling. It’s so much fun!
