I had to repost this recipe because I came across it the other day. This is hands down one of my favorite things that Lindsey makes! It is so delicious, totally a comfort food! If you haven't tried it, you're missing out! She originally posted it in 2017.
It's time for another pumpkin recipe, and this one is one of my favorites!!! It seems to be a fall tradition to make chili around Halloween, I don't know if it's the same for you, but I highly recommend it. Our church does a trunk or treat every year, and no matter what ward (like a congregation) that we are in, there is always a chili cook off, and I always like to bring my pumpkin chili, because it is ridiculously delicious.
It is also ridiculously easy. You grill the turkey meat beforehand and saute the onions. Then you dump everything in the crock pot and let it cook for a few hours and you get a delicious chili that you will feel like you can't eat enough of! Someday soon I will also share with you my favorite cornbread recipe, but for now, enjoy the chili.

Have you ever been browsing Pinterest and been overwhelmed with trying to recreate on there? Or by the cost of trying to get the look you want?
Honestly that's how I was feeling with this post. So I decided to set some limits for myself. Sometimes working within limitations can help get the creative juices flowing. I decided I wanted to spend no more than $10, and that it would be something I could put together in no more than 15 minutes. Because, let's be honest, with everything going on Thanksgiving Day, who wants to spend tons of time getting the table ready? And in the end I think my centerpiece ended up being beautiful!
(If you're worried about timing for Thanksgiving be sure to check out our 'Thanksgiving Prep 101' post which gives you a timeline from a month in advance on how to prepare for Thanksgiving with a printable checklist to hang on your fridge!)
Easy & Affordable Thanksgiving Centerpiece
I made this little video showing you how I put my centerpiece together. It's really that simple! Feel free to pause it if it goes too fast for you. Below I'll list the supplies I used.
Tips for Making a Thanksgiving Centerpiece
If you're wondering how I got all these for less than $10 the answer is after Halloween Clearance!
Once Halloween is over stores basically start moving on to Christmas and heavily discount their fall merchandise. The 3 picks were $2 each! And my pack of leaves, pinecones, and little pumpkins were $0.25 each. So check out your bargain bins. If you can't find any around you here's some similar I found on Etsy.
I already had some of the supplies in my home. I had some extra greenery from an old wreath I used to fill in gaps. We grew pumpkins in my garden this year so my centerpiece pumpkin and one of the mini orange pumpkins are from my garden. I know most people don't grow pumpkins so a pie pumpkin or two from the grocery store would also look cute in the center.
You could also go on a pinecone hunt outside to help decorate your table. Just be sure to clean them off before using them.
Here's some more tips for making your easy and affordable Thanksgiving centerpiece:
I hope that these tips and tutorial can help you to create your own beautiful Thanksgiving centerpiece. Don't let Pinterest overwhelm you, if you do use our tips to make your own centerpiece, tag us in your picture so we can share!
