Decorations and holidays go together like cupcakes and hipsters. But if you’re like a lot of us, you’re probably a little strapped, and so doing Thanksgiving a lo grande might be out of your budget. Whether or not you’ve got a few friends coming over, or all 27 of your tíos, prepping can be stressful. Have no fear, here are a few cheap DIY centerpiece ideas we found to make your Thanksgiving Day dinner table pop.

If you’re like me, there’s always a few empty tequila bottles just waiting for a second chance. Pure class.
No fish? No problem. Grab some dirt and flowers.
Here's another option you can use your repurposed beverage bottle for once the candle is done. Just need to clean residual soy wax with soap and water before using it as a planter. ? ♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲♲ #repurposed #tequilabottle #planter #drinkwicks #recyclingbottles #donjulio #tequila

I remember the first time I helped my tío decorate one of his empties. Glitter, glue, and some left over Cinco de Mayo flowers, and we had an instant centerpiece masterpiece.
You can never go wrong with the color scheme of Café Bustelo.

Definitely one of the classiest coffee cans on the shelf. You don’t need much to say a lot.
You can also use El Pato salsa cans for small accents.

If you’re not a fan of the can, just throw every flower ever into it. Draw attention away from the offending vase.

If you see anyone do this, report them.
Why would anyone do this to a molcajete? These look like sad little hedgehogs.
I. Can’t. Even.
