Well before you perfect your Thanksgiving turkey and pumpkin pie, take time to figure out how you're going to dress your dinner table.

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.
These little pear turkeys are too cute, and this is a great project for the kids. You’ll need pears obviously, plus some craft paper and a few basic crafting supplies. You can use these to dress up the entryway table or create a centerpiece. You could also put name tags on them to personalize your place settings for Thanksgiving dinner. Oh, the possibilities!
