DIY Thanksgiving Decoration

Pumpkins are just great element for entire fall decoration until you reach Thanksgiving. I made a DIY Thanksgiving Decoration by presenting a silhouette of a gold pumpkin with “blessed” as the sentiment. It is a painted Thanksgiving sign with a simple painting job. I have the pumpkin decoration in a white and gold color scheme with will be perfect for fall to winter transition decoration. Let’s find out more of things to prepare and how to make the DIY Thanksgiving decoration of a pumpkin sign.

Things To Prepare

I just love to play with any white media, and if it’s not white, I would paint it white. And this material I used, happens to be white, without needing white paint which is great for me. It’s a PVC board that I have in small cuts. I have some at my storage, so I used it to make some decorations instead of buying some new wooden plank. I also used the PVC board for some of my previous projects, like Black and White Halloween Sign and Coastal Coasters. Back to my pumpkin sign for Thanksgiving decoration, here are a few things I used to make the Thanksgiving blessed sign :

  • White PVC board
  • Black marker
  • Gold paint or gold marker

How To Make

This simple gold pumpkin decoration is an easy painted Thanksgiving sign. It’s just a mix of an abstract painting of a pumpkin and a “blessed’ wording. The steps are just painting steps. Anyway. here are the points on how I made the DIY Thanksgiving decoration:

  1. Cut a square shape of a white panel, I used white PVC board with 10×10 inches dimension.
  2. Paint a pumpkin in abstract look with gold paint or simply use a gold marker. Let it dry before you continue to next step.
  3. Write a word “blessed” in the middle of the pumpkin by using a black marker. Wait until it’s dry and you can use the gold pumpkin sign as a Thanksgiving decoration right away.

The steps are easy and the supplies used for my DIY Thanksgiving decoration are easy and simple. Grab your brush or marker to make your own abstract pumpkin and a Thanksgiving sentiment and you can show it off during the Thanksgiving dinner celebration.

How To Make Unique Thanksgiving Pumpkin Sign

Sometimes we’re tired of the same circle wreaths or square signs to be hung on our door or wall. For that,  I made something different, an unique pumpkin sign for coming Thanksgiving. It’s made from cardboard, so it doesn’t cost you much but if you already have wooden pumpkin shape, you can use it too. I shared with you how to make this unique yet simple Thanksgiving Pumpkin sign.


Things To Prepared

There are a few things to prepared, if you are a crafter, I’m sure you have all the ingredients I used for this unique Thanksgiving pumpkin sign.

  • Cardboard
  • Burlap rope
  • Watercolors ( white, blue, green)
  • Green flannel
  • UHU Glue
  • Black marker


How To Make

You can always replace the cardboard pumpkins with wooden pumpkin, but that’s not too frugal, isn’t it? Well, here I shared with you some easy steps to make my Thanksgiving sign looks unique.

  1. Take a cardboard and cut 4 pumpkin shapes in 2 sizes.
  2. Paint the cardboard pumpkin , one for each size with white paint for base.
  3. Paint the white pumpkin cardboard with blue and green and white watercolors. Leave dry. This process will need a little skill in painting.
  4. Cut green flannel for 5 leaves shape.
  5. Use burlap rope to connect the big pumpkin and the small pumpkin.
  6. Glue the painted big blue pumpkin together with the rope to its other big cardboard pumpkin to make a sandwich.
  7. Do the same to the small pumpkin and use the other end of the burlap rope. Let it dry.
  8. Glue the flannel leaves to the pumpkins and the burlap rope by using UHU glue to have a better result.
  9. Write the word “be” on the small blue painted pumpkin and the word “thankful” to the big cardboard pumpkin by using a black marker.
  10. Hang the unique pumpkin sign on your wall or door for Thanksgiving decor.


Do you have some cardboard laying around your storage room? Well, it’s time to upcycle them into a cheap but unique Thanksgiving decoration. This blue pumpkin sign is just great for wall or door decoration, especially if you want something new than a wreath for your Thanksgiving dinner decor. Well, have a good time making it!
