I am sharing some easy Thanksgiving Centerpieces and Table Decor ideas you can make in minutes. The inspiration for the first centerpiece was some vintage tool caddy or totes. I had a “new” looking centerpiece box, and I wanted to make it look old and rustic like my Father’s tool caddies (see the below photo).

This rustic centerpiece box can be filled with any florals. I recommend filling it by distributing the size, color, and shapes.

Distribute acorns and pinecones evenly in your Thanksgiving centerpiece. I added wood disks under the candles to add some height.
