Thanksgiving Craft Ideas For The Whole Family [VIDEO]
Thanksgiving is just a few days away but there is still plenty of time to do some last minute crafts. There are some great ideas out there, from table settings, mantle pieces, center pieces and just fun stuff for the kids to do. I found a couple of great ideas that I thought were really cute to share.
The table is where most of the Thanksgiving holiday activities happen. This is a fabulous little napkin ring idea using simple items you probably already have around the house. You need black and white paper, glue, tape, white doilies, and family photos. You cut and paste the paper to look like pilgrim outfits and glue and tape the family faces on each pilgrim for their personal napkin ring.
A cute edible project for your table are these mini cornucopia’s for each place setting. They are made using tortillas, small veggies (mini-corns, cherry tomatoes, English peas, baby pickles & carrots), toothpicks and dip or dressing. You cut the tortilla in half and roll each half into a cone shape then secure it with a toothpick and fill it with your tiny veggies.
This video shows you how to make simple placemats for the table. You need a little felt cut to the size you wish, a few embellishment pieces, some ribbon and glue gun. These are simple, cute and can be made to your individual taste. Kids can do these (with limited supervision) while you are cooking.
These are just a few really simple ideas that I found online. Have fun decorating!
