DIY Thanksgiving Table Decor

We hosted our very first Thanksgiving this year and everything went off without a hitch! I was obsessed with our table decor, so I thought I would share what I used to make the eucalyptus table garland and our “grateful” napkin holders.

If I want to learn how to do something, obviously I turn to the internet to figure it out. I watched this video on making a DIY eucalyptus garland and then bought the necessary supplies to make my own!

This is what I bought:

seeded eucalyptus (these leaves are GORGEOUS)
silver dollar eucalyptus
eucalyptus without seeds (I forget the actual name)
paddle wire
twine

I followed the video by making little bunches of four or five pieces of mixed leaves and then tied them together with the paddle wire. Using the paddle wire, I attached the little bunches of eucalyptus to the twine. I did this until I reached the desired length and voila!

Next… the grateful napkin “rings.” I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest, so I tried to make my own and was very happy it didn’t turn into a Pinterest fail.

I bought the little wooden discs on Amazon, painted both sides white, and then used a Cricut to cut the word “grateful” into black vinyl. I put the twine that came with the package through the top and then was all done!

I love the eucalyptus garland for fall because I spruced it up with pumpkins, but you could easily jazz it up for Christmas with some white flowers or some silver accents. Enjoy!
