How to Make a Thanksgiving Centerpiece

November 15, 2016


Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so I decided it would be a good time to make a nice center piece for the dinner table. In order to make this project, you’ll just need 1- 1×4 that is 8′ long and a can of spray paint or stain (handles for the ends of the box are optional). I started out by cutting my board into 4 pieces: 2 at 34″ long and 2 at 5″ long. I drilled holes in both of my 5″ pieces to accept the handles and the thoroughly sanded all of the pieces. After that, I assembled the box with some brad nails and wood glue. After the glue was dried, I re-sanded the entire box and painted it with some brown spray paint. From here, I installed the handles and it was all done! This project is very simple to make, but really looks great once all the decorations are added to the inside. This would be a great project for a beginner because of the simplicity of it and the final project has an awesome look to it once it’s all decked out with candles, leaves, acorns, and more!
