It might be hard to believe, but with November upon us it’s time to start thinking about the upcoming Thanksgiving and Winter holiday gatherings that are sure to bring friends and family calling at your door.

Thanksgiving Decor Ideas

A Cozy Glow

Wrap glass votive holders in textural flair for an easy candle accent. Tie raffia around three or four overlapping moistened corn husks trimmed to fit. The finishing touch of a spotted guinea fowl feather (available at crafts stores) adds a flourish.

Thanksgiving Decor Ideas

Nut Votives

Place these beautiful votives on your Thanksgiving dining table, mantel or coffee table. Just gather unshelled nuts and layer in a glass vase around a small candle. Save a few nuts to scatter near your display.

Thanksgiving Decor Ideas

The Layered Look

Make a pretty centerpiece or mantel decoration by layering seasonal materials in clear glass cylinder vases. We started with corn kernels, then added burgundy cockscomb celosia, orange bittersweet, pale green dried hops and brown oak leaves. Top off with a rust-color pillar candle. Change candles if the flame gets close to the dried material, or use a battery-powered candle for safety.

The Hues of Autumn

Footed glass containers show off ribbons, beans and nuts in fall hues. A copper tray adds shiny sophistication and makes the arrangement portable as well.

Thanksgiving Decor Ideas

Cuffed Vases

Add Thanksgiving flavor to a tabletop or mantel with cylinder vases filled with nuts and flowers. Roll coordinating scrapbook paper into decorative cuffs that slip inside the vase. Vary the look by substituting wheat, branches or snips of any pretty leafy plant for the flowers.

Thanksgiving Decor Ideas

Corks and Candles Vases

This super-easy centerpiece showcases the rustic, natural texture of wine corks inside a footed clear-glass candleholder. For more fall color, add leaves or berries among the corks. Make sure any flammable materials are protected from the candle, or use a battery-powered candle for safety.

Thanksgiving Decor Ideas

Stacked Gourds

Bring autumn to your table or mantel by showing off gourds in cylindrical vases. Use containers of different sizes, and stack varying numbers of gourds. Add a pretty curving touch with a length of fresh pumpkin vine or another fresh or artificial vine.

Do It Yourself Geometric Terrarium
Filed under: DIY Ideas, Home Decor
Posted by: Richard @ 4:25 pm

This is a simple yet elegant do it yourself project that everyone can do! Succulents in our geometric terrarium is a wonderful modern accent for your home. These are really a great indoor planting option for those to want to add a touch of nature. You can add this to your coffee table or give it as a very unique gift.

These nursery tiny worlds can be vibrant and bold, whimsical, or simply natural and unpretentious. Regardless of how and what you use in your terrarium, one thing is for sure…these beautiful mini-gardens are the perfect way to bring the outdoors into your unique space.

Step 1 - Collect Supplies

-Gravel Rocks
-Potting Soil
-Variety Succulents: 2″, 4″
-Moss, pebbles and stones for decoration
-Geometric Terrarium

Put in layer of 1″-2″ of gravel to create a drainage system for your terrarium. This will ensure that your plants live longer.

Put a layer of 2-4″ of succulent potting soil, to create a base for planting.

Take your selected succulents out of their containers, loosening the surrounding soil from the pot.

Remove any dead/brown leaves before planting.

Burrow a small divot in base layer to place in your succulent, compacting with dirt to secure it into place.

You may split apart succulents with multiple stems that are not connected by one root.

When planting is complete, even out the top layer of soil so it is all the same and all plants are secure.

Add in your top dressings such as mood moss, pebbles, stones, sand or crushed glass.

Mix different textures and colors to give it your own unique look.

Note: Place your terrarium in a spot that will get bright indirect light or sunlight.

Water using a spray bottle with filtered water once every week/week and a half.
