Thanksgiving Craft DIY Decoration Idea

This is my newest decoration for Thanksgiving this year and it only takes about 10 minutes to make. I have this shelf in my kitchen that was my Grandmas and it’s made for plates. The shelf is so special to me because my Grandpa built it and it’s a huge reminder of them. I love that it hangs next to my table just as it did at my Grandmas house. Ok enough of that because I am starting to tear up.

The hardest part of this project was choosing the sayings to go on the plates. There are just so many good ones for Thanksgiving. I found the plates at the Dollar Tree in this pretty orange mid-tone color thats perfect for fall. I am on the Dollar Tree hunt for one more because it would look better with 3, but so far no luck.

I chose this one “Crazy Blessed” from and “Give Thanks” from

I love the “Crazy Blessed” because I am truly blessed, but my life is crazy with 2 small children, 2 pomeranians, a cat, and a husband who loves to cause shenanigans (I think he makes the most craziness). This is perfect for our home, then of course “Give Thanks” since it’s Thanksgiving Time.

First I made sure the plates are clean and ready to create with. Then using my Cricut Explore, I cut out the SVG files using Oracal 651 Glossy Permanent Vinyl 12 Inch x 6 Feet – White. I used the center circle of the plate (about 5inches by 5 inches) to size my sayings.


Then I weeded the vinyl and used transfer tape to put it on the plates.



These plates are unique and fit our home, personalities, and decor perfectly, which is why I love creating decorations. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love, blessings, and pie!
