DIY GOLD THANKSGIVING TABLESCAPE

With Thanksgiving only a few weeks away, I teamed up with Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts today to share a fun and super easy tablescape. The thing I love about this table decor is that it looks so luxe and intricate, but it didn’t cost very much and was super easy to put together. You’ll impress all your guests and still have time to cook the turkey!

The key to creating a gorgeous table scape like this is to pick one color (or two at the most). Filling the table with lots of gold pieces makes it feel rich and full, but it doesn’t get overwhelming or cluttery.

Materials:
note: all of these materials are optional — choose what you like to create your own unique table!
  • 2 yards of plain burlap (more or less depending on the size of your table)
  • Artificial or real pumpkins in a variety of sizes (I found mine in the Halloween clearance bins at Jo-Ann’s)
  • Gold spray paint
  • Pinecones (real or fake)
  • Mod Podge (or other white glue)
  • Gold Glitter
  • Candles and candle holders 
  • Gold foliage (purchased at Jo-Ann’s in the floral section) and milk bottles or small vases
  • Gold chargers

For the burlap table runner: 

  • Cut the burlap in half, lengthwise, so you have two long strips. Take the two short ends of the fabric and sew them together with a straight stitch if needed to make one super long strip of burlap. Otherwise, just cut and lay it flat down the center of the table. note: I had to iron my burlap, so do that if it isn’t lying flat). 
For the pumpkins:
  • Use the gold spray paint to completely coat the pumpkins. It will work on both real and fake pumpkins. Let the completely dry before using. 
For the pinecones: 
1.  pour glitter and glue on to separate paper plates. 
2. carefully dip one side of the pinecone in the glue, rolling slightly to cover the entire side. 
3. pour the glitter over the glue, then turn the pinecone upside down and repeat. 
They’re perfect for place holders on top of each napkin! 

For the Foliage:

  • Use wire cutters to cut your gold leaves and branches down to fit in your vase. Arrange as you’d like. 
Now take all these gorgeous gold items and create a gorgeous and festive table scape for your holiday dinner, then set the table and enjoy your feast!
