How 'Bout Them Apples?
To make the mantelpiece display pictured above, top wooden candle holders with autumn's prettiest apples. Use artificial apples if you’d prefer a long-lasting display.

Add a ribbon garland of leaves to a spray-painted picture frame, and lean against the wall. Flank the frame with white pillar candles, tiny faux pears, and a string of bittersweet berries for instant fall appeal.
Dried gourds make low-cost vases that you can set atop your mantel. Group them and fill with elegant fall flowers for an easy arrangement.
Easy-to-add grommets make a statement on a table edge. Simply push the grommets into the trimmed corners of your tablecloth; hang mini pumpkins from the openings.
Create a grouping of vases for cattails or berry branches. Gather several bottles in an arrangement. Fill them with small nuts, then tuck in the cattails or branches.
Colorful fall leaves make a statement in your candle displays. Use decoupage medium to affix the leaves to basic pillar candles. (Safety note: Never leave a candle unattended.)
Use pretty leaf patterns to inspire a fall throw quilt. Fusible webbing (available at crafts stores) makes it easy to iron cut-out felt leaves onto a felt blanket.
Natural elements make gorgeous wreaths during Thanksgiving. Combine bittersweet vines and the stems of Chinese lanterns for an anywhere-in-your house wreath display. Bend and twist the pieces, securing with hot glue.
A wooden crate or rustic basket looks great stuffed with colorful mums, Indian corn, pumpkins, and wheat.
Get set for a very happy Thanksgiving!
