With November comes the promise of a family gathering on Thanksgiving and a dinner table filled with home-made centerpieces, napkin holders and more! Yes, it is that time of year again – Turkey Day crafting time! So, pull out all of your art supplies, scissors and glue and get ready to create one, two, three, or even all four of these November crafts!
This fall-themed centerpiece is incredibly easy and fun to make. All you need to do is hollow out a pumpkin, hide a vase inside and fill it with your favorite fall flowers. Your kids can help you hollow out the pumpkin and make the flower arrangement. If you have a longer table, you can create several pumpkin bouquets of different sizes!
- Pine Cone Turkeys
This easy craft only requires you to have a few pine cones, hopefully from your yard, hot glue, a piece of orange felt, googly eyes and some long, fall-colored feathers! All you need to do is cut your long feathers in half, shortening them so that they are an appropriate length when attached to the acorn. Put a small dot of hot glue onto the feathers and stick them towards the back of the acorn. Then, cut small triangles out of the felt for a beak and grab two googly eyes. Once everything is glued on, you have your pine cone turkey! For more instructions, click here.
- Turkey Napkin Rings
To create these easy turkey napkin rings, all you need is felt in brown, red and yellow, fabric glue, scissors and some googly eyes. This idea is from FaveCrafts.com. The first thing you are going to do is cut a strip of brown felt, which will be the napkin ring itself. Then, cut out the pieces for the face, feathers and wattle and glue them on.

This fall reminder to be thankful is extremely easy to make and will be aesthetically appealing hanging behind your thanksgiving dinner table. All you need for this easy project is to head to your nearest craft supply store and get foam letters, fall colored ribbon and a hole punch. Hole punch the letters you want to use to spell out THANKFUL, HAPPY THANKSGIVING, or whatever you and your family are thankful for. Then, string the ribbon through the letters and your banner is ready to hang!
