Oftentimes, we skip right into holiday and Christmas decorating after Halloween. But what about Thanksgiving? You want your home to be inviting and beautiful for Thanksgiving Day and dinner. This list of Thanksgiving wall decoration ideas is all under $15, so it's very budget-friendly.
If you like, choose wall decorations with a fall theme, rather than specifically Thanksgiving. Then you can leave them up quite some time before Thanksgiving Day.

Are you ready for the holidays? With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I've been looking at some of my favorite ideas for how to decorate my home. If you are anything like me, it's all about finding ways to make your home beautiful without spending a ton of money! Here are my favorite types of Thanksgiving wall decorations that won't break the bank.
Thanksgiving Wall Decorations
Hanging garlands is an easy way to cover a lot of wall space or decorate a doorway. You can choose from natural elements like branches and leaves or something whimsical like these pom poms.
Thanksgiving buntings and banners
Buntings and banners can be fabric, paper or both! Burlap bunting flags are especially pretty around the Thanksgiving season. You can even find frugal Friendsgiving banners to use.
My free printable Thanksgiving bunting takes just a few minutes and a few sheets of cardstock! Have little ones? Make a Thanksgiving gratitude garland with them ahead of the holiday. This makes a fun keepsake, too.
And I just love this Thanksgiving pie banner! It's easy with felt and a glue gun and will be a family favorite each year when you bring it out.
Thanksgiving wall art and decals
I love to bring out old family photos from previous Thanksgivings. I have a large canvas print of my three kids playing in leaves that is a sentimental decoration.
You can either buy or make your own wall art. There are tons of free printables around–just print on your own printer and hang with a frame. A metal sign is also a lovely touch.
Another inexpensive way to decorate walls is with vinyl decals that are removable. You can change them out for each holiday if you'd like!
A fabric tapestry is a smart way to cover a lot of empty wall space for not a lot of money. We've used 3M command strips to hang tapestries in our home. They're easy to apply and remove, without damaging the paint or your wall.
A large fabric banner is another way to cover a lot of space. This Happy Thanksgiving one is 6 feet long!
Add color to your existing shelves
If you have wall shelves, add some fall and Thanksgiving colors to decorate for the holiday season. Use real pumpkins (the tiny kind), pinecones, and other natural elements. Shelves are also a great place to include a trend–like these gnomes–into your holiday decor. I pick up very inexpensive shelf decor at my local Dollar Tree.
Wreaths aren't just for front doors, though that's a lovely place to hang one. Consider hanging a beautiful fall wreath on an interior wall. If you enjoy doing crafts, I have a big list of DIY Thanksgiving Decor Ideas under $10 that includes several wreaths you can make yourself.
Whether it's handmade or purchased, protect your wreath by storing in a protective wreath bag the rest of the year. I have mine hanging in my laundry room so I can switch them out each season.
Thanksgiving photo backdrop
With everyone gathering, it's a great time to take photos! Consider a large photo backdrop on one wall so everyone can take their shots. Again, 3M command strips are the best way to attach it. You can also get fun photo booth props for everyone to play with.
For your entryway or foyer
Make sure family and friends feel welcome the minute they step in your door! Add an indoor welcome mat for guests to wipe their shoes. You can also hang a flag to greet them.
Add color to your home this Thanksgiving with these frugal Thanksgiving wall decoration ideas! You don't have to spend a lot of money, and you can reuse your wall decor each year for even more value.
