This thankful turkey can be a decoration all month long or constructed just before your Thanksgiving dinner. To create this project, begin with a large pinecone. Cut feather shapes from scrapbook paper, crease them in half lengthwise and fringe the edges with scissors. Construct the turkey's head by cutting out an oval and a circle and adding googly eyes, a beak and a wattle. Have family or guests write what they're thankful for on the feathers and tuck feathers into pinecone.
If you don’t have a mantel, you can do this with a coffee table, bar, counter, or whatever you have. Just pick up small pumpkins and gourds to create this beautiful Thanksgiving display. Add burlap, a few small corn husks, whatever you can find to make it look really harvest worthy. A few strategically placed turkeys (not the real ones, mind you) will really help you to make it holiday worthy.
These punny aprons are the perfect DIY for anyone who's planning to spend days in the kitchen prepping for Turkey Day. It's a quick, easy craft requiring only a few materials—printable transfer paper, an iron, and an apron or two. "Watch Me Whip, Watch Me Bake Bake," "Bakers Gonna Bake," "I’m All About That Baste, and "Chop It Like It’s Hot" are a few of the printable designs offered by blogger Eden Passante.
For a wreath that lasts from fall through Christmas, try this brown and gold arrangement.Wire dried artichokes, lotus pods and pinecones to the bottom of a grapevine wreath. Tuck brown- and gold-tinted magnolia leaves (from a crafts store) between twigs. If needed, secure leaves with hot glue. A glittery bird ornament perched on a pinecone (and secured with wire) adds shimmer.
Make this gorgeous diorama and you’ll be the envy of the neighborhood. Seriously, is this not the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? And, it’s not nearly as difficult to make as you would think. You will need to wait until just a week or so before Thanksgiving to create it if you’re using a real pumpkin though. You don’t want it to rot with your diorama inside.

The dinner table is the focal point of the Thanksgiving feast, partly because of the anticipation created by all those wafting aromas of delicious food. It may be several hours before the turkey is pulled from the oven, gravy is brought to a boil, potatoes are cooked, mashed, and mixed, and the feast is ready to be served. Everyone knows that this once-yearly Thanksgiving feast is well worth waiting for, and the table will be the place where the best stuff happens.
