DIY Dollar Tree Thanksgiving Decor and Thrifted Finds
When it comes to creating a beautiful tablescape, it’s all about the details. Let’s start with the foundation. Those thrifted vintage-style goblets and gold silverware will add a touch of elegance and charm to your table. Pair them with wood grain chargers and cream cloth napkins to bring in an earthy and rustic element. I chose to simply bunch and tie the napkins with an orange ginham print ribbon.
Now, let’s talk about the stars of the show – the Dollar Tree ceramic pumpkins and faux leather pumpkins. There are a ton of Dollar Tree Thanksgiving table decor options that offer the perfect accents to a stunning yet budget-friendly tablescape.
These little gems will serve as the perfect focal point for your centerpiece. Arrange them artfully along the table, intermingled with faux maple leaf garlands for that quintessential autumnal touch.
Last but not least, don’t forget to scatter some pinecones. You can literally collect these from your own yard or a park to add a natural and cozy feel to the display.
For that warm and inviting ambiance, small votive candles with seasonal scents will do the trick. Make your own Dollar Tree DIY Candle votives using repurposed Oui yogurt jars for an ultra affordable option. Place them strategically around the centerpiece, allowing their soft glow to create a warm and sophisticated atmosphere. You’ll be amazed at how these simple additions can transform the entire look and feel of your Thanksgiving table.

With these easy-to-find and budget-friendly items, you can effortlessly put together simple yet stunning centerpieces for your Thanksgiving table that will leave your guests in awe.
Linked below are the Dollar Tree items I used in my DIY Thanksgiving Centerpiece. Dollar Tree items are seasonal in-store purchases that may or may not be available at your specific location. If your location does not have these exact items, feel free to substitute with other budget-friendly alternatives. Local craft stores are a great option, or even Target’s Dollar section!
Also included below is the tutorial for the DIY candle votives I made using Dollar Tree Candles and repurposed Oui Yogurt containers. These are super easy to make and highly versatile to incorporate into all of your DIY Fall decor!
