Turn an ordinary box into a mock vintage wooden box with this Thanksgiving Bounty Box tutorial. This piece of DIY Thanksgiving decor serves as a charming treat box as well. Decorate it with some Thanksgiving symbols and add a little ladybug, which in ancient times was regarded as a good omen. Fill the box with pecan or almond nuts, and get ready to share the season’s bounty with your friends and colleagues. Show gratitude on this special holiday by sharing your bounty with those around you.
