This lovely centerpiece couldn’t be easier: wrap twine around mason jars, fill with water, and place fresh flowers on top. Camellias are ideal: the petals are sturdy, and won’t fall off when cut and assembled.

Nothing screams “kids project” like construction paper, googly eyes, and sour gummy candy. Children can entertain themselves by writing what they’re thankful for on each feather, or they can write nice little notes and give them to everyone at the table.

If you’re looking to tackle a more adventurous project, this might just be one of the best mason jar crafts out there. A homemade wooden box is stained with a walnut-colored stain, then adorned with cute knobs on each end. Once you've crafted the box, fill it with a variety of gourds, clear mason jars, and candles. The best part? You can use it for any holiday—simply swap out what's inside.
