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.
Well before you perfect your Thanksgiving turkey and pumpkin pie, take time to figure out how you're going to dress your dinner table. Even if you don't go all-out with place cards and table settings, a seasonal centerpiece is an easy (and affordable!) way to elevate your family gathering. No matter what style you're going for — rustic, glam, or full-on fall — DIY these simple yet elegant Thanksgiving centerpieces to wow your party guests with a well-dressed table. While a vase of flowers is a go-to for any party host, these easy-to-follow centerpiece ideas make your holiday setting even more personal and most of all, Instagram-worthy.
Create a beautiful table display that shows off the bounty of the season. Cylindrical vases filled with birdseed provide a sturdy base for branches from which small pumpkins dangle on bits of twine. Between the vases, hollowed-out gourds hold candles as well as berries. Finish the look by arranging berries, pinecones, gourds, branches and moss around the vases.
Fashion flowers from corn husks for seasonal napkin rings. To create the flower, cut a freehand spiral from a soaked corn husk so it has at least four rings. Starting from the outside, roll up the spiral. This will form a rose shape. Let dry; the rose should hold its shape loosely. Secure with gel glue. Glue a circle to the base. For the ring, cut out a rectangle and fold to form a loop. Hot-glue ends. Glue flower to the top, and you're ready!
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!
A custom banner posted in the yard can welcome guests to the event – truly useful, if they've never been to your house before. A fall centerpiece made of gleaming glass or pine cones and gourds anchors the display for the adult table. For the kids' table, honeycomb turkeys and color-your-own centerpieces add an element of fun. And for the living room and foyer, Thanksgiving cutout decorations, balloons, and wall signs remind anyone who may have missed the date (incredibly enough) that the feasting holiday is upon us.
