22 Table Decor Hacks for a Festive Friendsgiving

It’s T-Day crunch time, y’all. And with all the rushing around looking for pie recipes and the best dishes for your Friendsgiving, there is barely enough time left over to think about decor. Believe it or not, five-minute decor for Thanksgiving is *not* a dream. These decorations are the answer to your hostess prayers. With simple how-to steps and only a handful of materials needed for most of these, you can whip ’em up between that sweet potato casserole and your famous eggnog.

1. Confetti Turkey: This turkey is more than just decoration; it’s also a treat for the kids to enjoy while they are waiting to fill their plate. They will love the confetti — though they probably are not going to offer to be on clean-up crew. (via Studio DIY)

4. Paint Pen Pattern No-Carve Pumpkins: These patterns look chic on small white pumpkins, but the designs would look great on classic orange pumpkins too. The best part?
