Decorating your yard for Thanksgiving is fun and easy, and is a perfect addition to the decorating you do inside your house. Fall colors such as brown, red, orange, and yellow, are best for decorating. Decorating your yard for Thanksgiving shows a sense of warmth and spirit around your house, and makes it seem inviting to guests who arrive for Thanksgiving dinner.

Cute and Easy Decorations

Garlands

Corn and Fall Leaves Garland

Corn and Fall Leaves Garland

There are all sorts of different types of garlands you can buy or create to decorate your yard for Thanksgiving. However, harvest garlands and fall leaf garlands are a beautiful addition to your yard. Fall leaf garlands are incredibly simple to make. All you need is twine and autumn leaves. Try to use an assortment of leaf colors, shapes, and sizes. Thread the leaves onto the twine and here you go a nice outdoor décor. A harvest garland is far more complex. You can twist the twine around the top of each vegetable or a pumpkin and gourd. Try to space them out with a little distance between them but evenly apart across the garland. Next, you might want to start adding the pinecones and may be an Indian corn by gluing them onto the twine. It is all up to you, if you would like any twine showing on your garland or not. If not, just make sure the entire twine is covered with the veggies you want to have on garland. For a final touch of your harvest garland, you may glue on the fall leaves between the vegetables.
