Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday. I don’t feel we spend enough time in today’s world giving thanks for what we have. So having a day dedicated to it is a great idea! (Even if said day if following by shopping binges…haha). Speaking of giving thanks, I’m thankful that fall is a great season to decorate for free. Fall provides almost all you to decorate for Thanksgiving for free. Below are some great ideas on how to decorate for free. And I decided some free thanksgiving printable wall art would be perfect for the season!

Fall Trees & Leaves:
Fall trees branches and leaves provide a ton of options!
Cut off branches with leaves attached and lay out to dry. Then slip them into a bare wreath to make a pretty fall wreath. Of if you’re particularly crafty, just make the wreath out of branches. (I need the wreath base to wrap them around, but I’ve seen people make wreaths without them).
Branches with leaves attached. If you can find some fairly straight ones, you can line them up end to end and use them at a table runner for your table. Then sprinkle pinecones, acorns, candles, etc. among the fall leaves.
Leaves. Pick a large pretty one and dry fairly flat. Then tie around a plain candle with twine for a country fall look.
Twigs. Glue them around a plain candle (or glass candle) for a fall look. If the branches are just slightly higher than the jar, the flames with peek through and give it a fabulous look.
Acorns and Pinecones:
Pile in a glass dish for a centerpiece.
Place in a glass dish around a candle to dress up a candle for the fall season.
String pinecones on twine for a fall banner.
Cluster 3-5 larger pinecones together for a centerpiece or display.
Visit a pumpkin patch...
Visit pumpkin patches towards the end of the season! You can often get- especially smaller ones to use for decor- for free.
If you know a farmer (I’m from Iowa originally…so I know a lot!), they may also let you grab a few corn cobs with the corn still on them for decor for free.
Yes, this requires a small investment so doesn’t qualify as free. But cut out of the top of small gourds or apples and pop a tealight in there. Cluster a group of 5-6 together for an illuminating fall display.
You can also use electric tea lights among a cluster of leaves (don’t use a flame around leaves) to illuminate them and bring out their color.
