Yes, today we are going beyond the turkey to focus on the decorations. Centerpieces, napkin holders, table runners…you know homey little touches that can bring an Autumn feel to the house.

The difference in what we are going to look at here is that all of our Thanksgiving decorations are going to be upcycled. Now, for those who do not know what that means I’ll explain it. Upcycling and Upcycle are terms that was coined by German chemist Michael Braungart and American architect William McDonough in their book, Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things.

In order to “Upcycle” something you would take something that you already have and re-purpose it for another use. To really get into upcycling information read the “What’s Upcycling all About?” post.
