I wanted my Thanksgiving Mantle to be very simple and classy with the focus on the purpose fo the day: Give Thanks and Be Grateful. I have so many things to be thankful for. Too many to list. I. am. blessed.
I repurposed a lot of things from my Halloween Mantle, things I already had in my craft supplies, or just from around the house. This mantle cost me $0!

A lot of things are from my Halloween Mantle…
- The center pumpkin is the “Hocus Pocus” one simply turned around.
- The vases I bought forever ago at Pier One and they are filled with things that were also on my Halloween Mantle. The leaves in the left vase are the Halloween Mantle garland simply folded in half to fill the vase.
- The giant acorn is from Hobby Lobby and was originally bought for the Halloween Mantle but I didn’t end up using it.
- The white pumpkins on the candlesticks are also from the Halloweeen Mantle. They have Jack-o-Lantern faces on them so I just turned the faces toward the wall.
I plan to do a full tablescape but the table centerpiece is something we got for our wedding almost 6 years ago and I just filled it with popcorn kernels we had one hand and took the candle from the Halloween Mantle.
The buffet table is still a work in progress but I got another part of the Willow Tree Nativity for my birthday last week and I just couldn’t wait til after Thanksgiving to put it out!
