For whatever reason I’m not much of a Thanksgiving person.  Maybe it’s the fact that it’s one of the few holidays where our entire family doesn’t get together.  We usually break out into our branches and have quieter, simpler, traveling Thanksgivings.  Or when I was younger we’d often go to the beach for vacation.  Nothing feels less like Thanksgiving than the beach.  Whatever the reason for my less than enthusiastic response to Thanksgiving this year is the first holiday season without my grandmother and I’m really interested in sort of getting back to basics.  A traditional meal, time with family, college rivalry football on Saturday, and just a touch of decorating.  Because I have to be true to myself here too ya’know.

Like I mentioned when I was sharing my t-shirt flower and burlap wrapped letter fall wreath with you I have to sneak decorations in on my family a little bit at a time.  A huge mistake I made last Christmas was when I forced everyone to spend an entire day decorating.  They were all cold and grumpy and hated me by dark.  I’ll definitely be taking a different approach this year.  But I’m getting way off topic.  Back to Thanksgiving.

I started with my Thanksgiving wreath again this time and decided I didn’t want to go full on it-looks-like-Thanksgiving-threw-up-everywhere chic so I came up with an abstract turkey.  You’re all like…what in the heck does an abstract turkey look like??  It looks awesome my friends.  This kind of awesome… 

Can you see the turkey now?  The abstract-ness of it?  I’m practically a decorating genius!  Ok, ok maaaaybe I’m patting myself on the back for this a little too much.  I think the absolute best part is that this whole thing cost me $1.25.  Yeah, a buck twenty-five.  Who wouldn’t love a wreath like that?

Notice how I didn’t move the letter.  Not even a little bit from where it was placed on my fall wreath.  If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right?!  My friend Nicole suggested I add a turkey face to the bottom but I kind of like the colorful, abstract quality of it.  What do you think?  Face?  Or no face?  Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

How adorable! I am going to have to give this a try with a Fall wreath I have laying around in storage. Pinning and sharing :-)

This is so cute! I have a wreath for every holiday, but have never gotten one yet for Thanksgiving. What a great idea! Thank you

I've never done a Thanksgiving wreath either! I usually just stick up some fall foliage until I make Christmas explode on my house! Thanks so much for stopping by :)

I didn't think I'd find what I wanted when I walked into the fabric store and there it was! Piled sky high in the sale bin! Wahoo! Thanks so much for stopping by :)
