Decorating the table with dollar store items is so easy! It is just a matter of putting things together for fun and festive harvest decor. This Thanksgiving Table scape is made almost entirely of dollar store items.
I meant to write this earlier this month but got a little busy so I am getting this up since Thanksgiving will be here soon. I am sharing my dollar store Thanksgiving table with you.
First I bought a couple of these cool vinyl table clothes for a dollar each. I cut one of them to make a runner in the center of the table.
I left it folded while cutting and placed it on the second tablecloth (each table-cloth was $.99)
Then I made
this simple candle decorations with votives and mini candles from the dollar store. I filled them with popcorn kernals and placed a votive candle in each. Then I put them on a plate with plastic leaves (that were $.99).
Then I made some holders for these cute little scarecrows ($.99 each)
For the napkin rings, using some clip art, I printed a Happy Thanksgiving message on some cardstock.
I cut them out and secured them around napkins (I had these), added a leaf, and secured with tape.
So each setting looks like this:
And finally, I wrapped ribbon around a few more dollar store candles.
So my table is decorated with almost all dollar store items!
