PHOENIX -- If you're planning to host Thanksgiving this year, it can be a major effort and wind up costing a lot of money.

But hosting a holiday doesn't  have to break the bank. DIY expert and editor of Emma Magazine Sarah Hubbell gave us some great dollar store decor ideas for your Thanksgiving feast.

Apples are a great design choice to warm up the look of a home.

"Faux fruit can cost up to $200 at a big box retailer," Hubbell says. "But with a coat of paint, you're not going to know the difference."

You can find paint at the dollar store as well, as well as plenty of other table accessories.

Hubbell assembled the beautiful centerpiece by painting the apples gold or white, and using simple plates and place mats.
