Nothing says Thanksgiving like a DIY Mason jar project, especially when you include it as part of your Thanksgiving table décor.
To those who know me, Thanksgiving is probably my fave holiday to decorate for…because I love fall and the colours. The fall for me represents the start of everything:
- Career wise, almost every job I’ve taken started in the fall.
- I started school and graduated from my undergrad in the fall.
- I got engaged and then married in the fall.
- My 3 kids were born in the fall.
So you see, me and the fall have a special relationship. It’s only natural that decorating my Thanksgiving table is my prefered holiday project.
Thanksgiving Table Glam-ification
But enough about me and let’s get talking about how you can glam-ify your Thanksgiving table with Mason jars.
If you’re looking for a unique and creative way to show your love for fall, mason jar crafts are awesome. There’s no shortage of ideas on Pinterest for Thanksgiving ideas, you can be sure of that!
Simple mason jars can be transformed into fall decorations for your home. Plus, they make the perfect homemade gift and are great as part of your Thanksgiving table décor.
Blain’s Farm & Fleet compiled some easy and fun fall mason jar crafts that you can make yourself.
Pumpkin spice is a staple of fall. You can make your own candles with the recipe from She Uncovered.
It’ll take two days for the pumpkin spice to infuse the oil. The end result though is an organic, homemade candle that smells like the essence of fall. It’ll make you want to run to Starbucks for their Pumpkin Spice Latte (mmmm…).
Make a couple and add them to your Thanksgiving table centrepiece to diffuse the beautiful aroma.
Spark & Chemistry’s mason jar candle holders don’t need much to cook up. Minimal supplies and a few easy steps to make it.
Using an adhesive, such as Mod Podge, glue fake or real fall leaves to the inside of the mason jar. Tie corn husks or twine around the top of the jar for a rustic touch. Place tealights inside for a fall-inspired glow.
Dispersing a few of these around the table, made in different sizes can really glam up your table.

The pumpkin made from canning lids from Fun Home Things is so easy to make. A fun project for kids to take part in:
