Reuse your Halloween Decorations For Thanksgiving
If you are anything like me, you like to be prepared for all reasons. You like to arrive ten minutes early to all appointments, you have a list of all needed supplies and more, and you make sure you’re prepared for anything and everything that may happen. So, of course, the latest you were ready for Halloween is about three weeks before and now that it’s mid-October, you are getting ready for the next holiday: Thanksgiving. Now, you don’t want to go and waste all of your autumn/Halloween decorations just for another holiday of the same season. So, to save you time and money on the two of your favorite fall holidays, we came up with ways for you to easily transition your home décor from spooky to cozy.
Leaves on Leaves
Did you buy more faux leaves than you may ever need? Well, nothing is easier to repurpose for fall décor than those brightly colored faux leaves. Save yourself the headache of figuring out how you can transform your home from Halloween to Thanksgiving. Keep the leaves around and decorate your kitchen and bathrooms and living room with them to really get your money’s worth out of them. Scatter them around and make your home the new cozy spot this holiday season.

Pumpkins and Pinecones
Keep all of your pumpkins from your Halloween decorations.

The dark, earthy color of the pinecones will add a nice balance to the bright pumpkins that decorate your home.
