Thanksgiving Party Centerpiece

Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks and celebrate with friends and family.

One of my favorite traditions is decorating my Thanksgiving table with my homemade cornucopia. First, I created this basket out of chicken wire, burlap, and rope. Next, I filled the basket with pumpkins, gourds, feathers, and flowers.

It’s a beautiful decoration that always gets me in the Thanksgiving spirit.
