With Thanksgiving less than one week away, it’s just about time to wrap up (or start!) planning for the big day. Although the scrumptious turkey, sides and pies often get the most attention throughout the evening, we want the decor to steal the show this year. From adorable ideas for place cards to votive candles made from apples, we’ve got your turkey day covered. Get started on these DIY crafts now, and you’ll still have plenty of time to wow your guests with all your food.
