This year is an extra special Thanksgiving for us. It will be the first time some of my family and my husbands’ have celebrated this holiday together. Can we say pressure? Of course, we are having this big shindig at our house and that means we have to get things in order. And FAST. Thanksgiving will be here before we know! I hope your kitchen is holiday ready because mine sure isn’t.

Every good Thanksgiving deserves a good centerpiece. I decided to make a simple, yet totally lovely centerpiece out of mason jars. Here’s how to make it:

DIY THANKFUL Thanksgiving Centerpiece Tutorial


  •  6″ X 10yd RichCraft Rustic Burlap Roll
  • pint mason jars
  • scissors
  • wire cutters
  • paint
  • paint brushes
  • Sharpie
  • fall leaves and sprigs
  • letter stencils
  • hot glue gun
  • craft straw


Go ahead and remove the inter-seal of the mason jar before painting. I forgot to which made the lids not turn out as nice as they could of.


Paint the mason jars in fall colors and recruit some help like I did. It’ll make things go much faster and it’s a fun fall activity to do with the kids as well. Let dry completely.


While the mason jars are drying, go ahead and cut your burlap into 11-inch strips. This will leave the perfect amount left to hot glue.

To make my mason jars I used a RichCraft Rustic Burlap Roll that measured 6″x10yd and has fringe. I feel like the fringe gives it that little some special which I love. The gaps between the burlap are very minimal giving a more finished look than some other burlaps. It worked great for my Thanksgiving craft!

Fold burlap in half and stencil on your letters with a Sharpie. Folding the fabric over allows the the little gaps in the burlap to not be an issue. Plus it gives you extra fringe!


Wrap folded burlap with stencil around mason jar and hot glue to secure. Make sure some of the bottom of the painted mason jar shows. Tie craft straw around each mason jar and tie into a bow.


Fill mason jars with fall springs and leaves. Cut any that are too long with wire cutters. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your new conversation starter!
