Easy Thanksgiving Centerpiece Ideas from Craftbaby

The sweet gals from Craftbaby are here today! 

Hello from Craftbaby
We’re so excited to help welcome little Sadie into the world by giving Allison a break from blogging… and by giving you busy gals some quick and easy Thanksgiving centerpiece projects! 
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and although you may have your recipes all ready to go, you may not have your decor! 
Here are some last minute centerpiece ideas using three flameless pillar candles.


As winter rolls in, I love the warmth of candles to welcome the season. Rich, woodsy flavors always feel so festive when the weather turns cool. Simple as they are, candles create a lovely, soft light that can transform any mood.

There’s only one problem: I have a toddler, and toddler + fire = not a great idea. 

A few years ago, I received some battery-operated pillar candles – the kind that you can set to go on & off every night at the same time. The flickery goodness of candles every night when it gets dark… and no actual fire or hot, dripping wax? It’s a win-win.

But they are simple, white pillar candles; not particularly decorative in their own right. If I add a few elements from my home, I can elevate them into fresh, new decor: perfect for a holiday centerpiece or seasonal mantel… and no need to worry about my materials being flammable – the sky’s the limit.
