Easy Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Last week I shared our Thanksgiving Leftover Party with lots of yummy food and decorating. Today I’d like to show you how easy it is to create the Thanksgiving Centerpiece for your table or even serving buffet.

Let’s start with the Pilgrim Hats…

Pilgrim Hat Centerpiece Supplies:

  • Small clay pots
  • Electrical tape
  • Washer – size will depend on the size of the pot, we used 1 1/2 inch washer on a 4 inch pot
  • Gold spray paint
  • Glitter


  1. Paint the washers with gold spray paint and immediately add some glitter. You can certainly leave the glitter off, but I like how it made the buckle look shiny.
  2. Wrap electrical tape around the clay pot. We tried using black paper, but found that the electrical tape was much easier because it stretches a bit.
  3. After the washer is dry, glue it onto the pot with hot glue

I filled one pot with floral foam and added some flowers. And the other pots were filled with a little dried moss and a pumpkin, and a gourd garland in the last pot.

After the Pilgrim Hats were done, I simply shopped my house for items to fill the tray. I had Doug cut wood into three pieces for the center. It was my intention to have him drill out a hole for a candle, but his drill wasn’t cooperating with us that day.

Then I added in the Pilgrim Hats and filled in with some Indian Corn and silk leaves. The gourd garland, that I used last year on the Hoosier cabinet, made it’s way to the table, placed in one of the Pilgrim Hats and simply wrapped around the wood loosely.
