Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and with it, many things to be thankful for. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday to display an Easy DIY Thanksgiving Garland to help impart words of thanks to our celebration. Sometimes, communicating what we are thankful for deserves more than just a few words after dinner.

During Thanksgiving time there are so many different reasons to be thankful! What better way to express those reasons than creating fun and personal decor for your Thanksgiving feast. A fun and unique idea for these garlands are making different versions of the various things we are thankful for. A few of my favorite are family, friends, and kids. A few other fun letter garland ideas are pizza, puppies, and extra guacamole! You choose, but either way, they will be cute and fun.

To bump of your festive flair add another layer of decorative garlands such as this Colorful Hanging Vine Garland or this Festive Folded Leaf Garland.

How to make a DIY Thanksgiving Garland

It takes just a few easy steps to create this Easy DIY Thanksgiving Garland. First, you will simply need to cut out letters using fun and bright scrapbook paper. I like to sketch out my letters before I cut them out, this makes the cutting process so much easier. Next, you will grab cute washi tape and attach the letters to the thread. You will add one side of the tape to the top of your letter. Then, wrap that piece of tape around the thread and attach to the other side of the letter. Once you have your letters all taped on you can hang your garland on the wall with an extra length of tape for a bold and festive display.
