Use your candleholders to display small pumpkins and gourds. A quick trip to the thrift store for a few mismatched candleholders, scary painted the color of your choice and there you have it; and elegant, yet easy centerpiece for your dining table or buffet. To add a little sparkle, consider glittering the bottom half of your pumpkins. (www.midwest living.com
This “Gratitude Leaf Garland” from Simply Modern Mom is a project you could get the whole family in on, throughout the month of November or on Thanksgiving Day.

Okay, I have to admit that the idea of using a can for a craft project has never really captured my heart, until I saw this adorable front door decoration from www.craftsfrommyhearts.blogspot.com
. She has used this basic idea for a variety of seasons and reasons using 2 clean cans, ribbons of your choice glued around the cans, button embellishments, 2, 42 inch lengths of ribbon hot glued to connect the cans and silk flowers tucked into styrofoam in your cans. Lovely!
Now I can’t stop with the cans… A clean can would make a perfect base to hot glue colored Indian corn to. Circled with twine or raffia, makes this the perfect place to tuck fall treasures:dried or silk leaves, flowers, berries and twigs.
Love this! An etched pumpkin surrounded by fall treasures.
Using glass votives wrapped in scrapbooking paper, you can “Give Thanks” using letter stickers. This would look great on a mantle.
