Cheap Thanksgiving Decorations

There’s turkey to stuff, potatoes to mash, pepper gravy to make, and cream to whip, but you still want to add at least one more seasonal decoration to the scene.

Yikes! What’s a girl to do?

 Don’t worry! These easy Thanksgiving banner ideas are the perfect way to add a thoughtful homemade touch to your decor, even at the last minute.

Plus, this project is super affordable because each tutorial comes with a FREE printable template.

The most important part of the day is bringing people together and giving thanks. Of course, nothing gets people to be more grateful than spelling it out for them in bold letters. But seriously, Thanksgiving banners are a simple way to set the mood for a truly special occasion.

I suggest getting ahead of your decor and seasonal preparations as much as possible.

I personally love all things fall, and as soon as harvest season rolls around, I bring out our favorite harvest books for kids and stock up on canned pumpkin puree for fall coffee drinks, cookies, and pies.

These thankful banners help set the mood, too.

How to Make a Thanksgiving Banner

Making a banner is as easy as cutting and pasting. 

If you have scissors, glue, and twine, that almost covers it all.

If you have a color printer or Cricut machine, the world of thanksgiving banners really opens up for you. Otherwise, find some felt pieces and you are in the game.  

Create a festive feel in less than an hour. You can bust a banner out while the turkey is in the oven! 

These decorations are so simple, even so, please allow enough time to spell the word THANKFUL correctly. 

Once you’re done, hang a thanksgiving banner on the fireplace or above the doorway in your home. Your friends or family will know it’s time to give thanks and celebrate.

These are sure to be a new seasonal favorite you’ll love as much as the iconic pumpkin chai latte.

Creative and Unique Thanksgiving Banners

Make the day even more memorable with an easy homemade thanksgiving banner. Hanging one on your wall is a sweet and simple touch you can totally handle even on such a busy holiday. Your thoughtfulness will touch your guests as they gaze upon your fresh thankful banner and watch you pull sweet potatoes from your crockpot. They’ll wonder how you “do it all” so well.
