3. Create a Natural Arrangement

To decorate your space at no cost, take a trip around your yard and gather a few natural elements for your home. Twigs, pine cones, acorns, and small tree logs are easy (and FREE!) ways to decorate your home this Thanksgiving. Arrange twigs around a jar or vase and light a candle inside for a cozy display. Pine cones and acorns are easy vase fillers for the season. Drilling holes into a log make it easy to nestle in a small candle for a rustic and natural feel for your gathering.

A glass food jar can be reused to decorate your space for your upcoming Thanksgiving dinner. Consider using wine glasses, upside down, to hold a votive candle and place a pine cone inside. A large vase can be reused to add acorns and twigs for a nice arrangement in the kitchen or living room as well.
