30+ Stylish Diy Thanksgiving Decorations Ideas

Holiday season is the opportunity for people to decorate their houses and, if they have one, their lawn or yard. The same goes for Thanksgiving decorations that reflect the harvest season as well as the beautiful red, gold and brown colors of fall. While some of these ornaments were developed by the old European pagan folks and used for the end of harvest season celebrations; some ornaments have wholly been created during the twentieth century.

It is typical to see, on the gardens or yards of many houses, foddershocks or bundles of cornstalks placed with other Autumn symbols such as pumpkins, cushaw, scarecrows and other decorations related to the fall season.

For instance, the “wicker man” is one of these decorations, born from the old European pagan traditions. This decoration was filled with the first goods from the crop and given as a present to the gods before being burned in their honor.

Another of those decorations stemming from these old traditions is the wreath. A wreath was woven out of grapevines or thin oak limbs and was generally decorated with wooden wooden beads, sunflowers, feathers, miniature pumpkins and many other products from the fall season.

With the advent of aggressive commercialism during the 20th century, entrepreneurs cashed in on the idea of ornamental lights, once simply used for Christmas d├ęcor, for the Thanksgiving holiday right along with decorative napkins, tableware, candles, napkin rings, and hundreds of other Thanksgiving-themed things. You can purchase cute small “Tom Turkey” figurines to put on your tables and images of happy settlers and Indians that are enjoying a “traditional” Thanksgiving dinner. Pre-made foddershocks, fall wreaths, acorns, apples, oak leaves, ears of weath, small gourds are available in any retail store and even at the local road side flea market or farmer’s market.

Although, if you have the time and the inclination, you will be able to save money and have more fun making your own Thanksgiving decorations.

Handmade Thankgiving Craft #1: The Foddershock

Building a foddershock is really easy. You just have to get a good number dried corn stalks, normally left in cornfields after the harvests, and tie them in the midsection of the bundle to create a sort of ‘tepee’ shaped bunching.

Stand your foddershock up in the selected area of lawn or yard and add squash, pumpkins, gourds, around it. You can also add a scarecrow to your new fall decor.

Handmade Scarecrow

Creating a scarecrow is so simple: just make a cross with two sticks that you will join firmly together. Dress the sticks with a long sleeved shirt and a pair of jeans. Add some items such as socks or a hat… To build the head of your scarecrow, use an old pillowcase or a cloth bag. Fill it with papers, old rags or fiberfill. Draw a face on the fabric and then bind the “head” on the vertical stick with a strong bond. Tip: put an old hat on top of it. As a good alternative, you may use a pumpkin for the head.

These are just a few of the decorations you can create at home with your kids. Do not hesitate to use your creativity to make your own traditional Thanksgiving decorations!
