25 Great Thanksgiving Ideas

The calendar has turned over to November which means it is time to focus on the next holiday: Thanksgiving.  Now, Thanksgiving often gets glossed over in favor of red, green, gold and silver for Christmas.  But, I am not letting it get hidden amongst the Joy and Noel crafts.  Nope!  Instead, I am here today to share 25 great Thanksgiving ideas for you to try for the often forgotten November holiday.

Thanksgiving Collage The great thing about Thanksgiving {besides the food} is that it is the perfect time share what you are grateful for and stretch those fall decorations a little farther with very little work.  I had such a great time looking through dozens of projects to select these 25.  I hope you find at least one or two you are interested in trying too!
