I’m so excited to share my Thanksgiving centerpiece with you today! Last year I made a paper flower and fresh greenery centerpiece that works for any holiday. So this year I wanted to bring in more of a harvest theme for Thanksgiving.
You can find all of the craft projects I used for this Thanksgiving centerpiece listed below. Then just watch the video tutorial to learn how to create your own holiday arrangement!
We Heartichoke this Centerpiece
To bring in the harvest theme for this Thanksgiving centerpiece, I decided to add our crepe paper artichokes, figs, acorns, and wheat. You will see in the video how I used floral wire to stick some of these crafts into the arrangement. You can make the same craft projects for your centerpiece or browse our crepe paper fruit for more ideas.
If you haven’t created a floral arrangement before, one important thing to consider is the focal point. For this Thanksgiving centerpiece, I decided the focal flower should be our crepe paper dahlias (from our October Member Make). These flowers are so exquisite and such a gorgeous deep burgundy color that they really stand out. I would say that the crepe paper artichokes are also a focal point but a more subtle one.
Next, I have our crepe paper ranunculus as the secondary flower. And as accents or fillers, I have the paper wheat, bunny tails, acorns, figs, olive branches, spider mums, and eucalyptus branches. You will see in the video below how I work these all into the arrangement to create a certain shape and flow for my Thanksgiving centerpiece.
