Thanksgiving is upon us! While we prepare for lots of feasting, and some sacred family time, we’re also so excited for yet another reason to get crafty! Thanksgiving day is the perfect excuse to bring out the glue guns, ribbons and, in our case, tree stumps! What better season than autumn to bring a little bit of nature inside your home, literally. At B&G we’re all about repurposing and reusing. It just so happens that our tree stumps also make for pretty awesome DIY décor for your home.
In the spirit of the holidays, we’ve decided to put the stumps from all of our stump removal jobs to good use. Here are a few great ideas to add a little bit of nature into your holiday decorations, and to bring a little bit of our home into yours.
You no longer need to wait for Christmas to bring out your fancy wreath! The team behind realhousemoms.com has come up with some amazing fall inspired DIY wreaths. Our favorite (just so happens) includes some wood stumps. Oh, and a little burlap too.
At our Thanksgiving dinner, our guest are usually too focused on the food to even notice our plates, let alone our placemats. This year why not give them something to notice! This idea for log placemats from justimagine-ddoc.com is brilliant and beautiful!
If your family is anything like ours on Thanksgiving, we make sure that our tables are covered with plenty of delicious dishes. This doesn’t always leave us with much room for table decorations, which is why centerpieces are a must! They are simple statement pieces that take up little room and go a long way. We are loving Worthingcourtblog.com’s bark centerpieces. Just add a few berries, some flowers and maybe even an apple, or two, and wah lah! A beautiful nature inspired centerpiece.
