Walnut Turkey Placecards

by Kathleen Ballos

It’s not too often that I use food items in crafts, but walnut shells were just perfect for these turkeys! Make these simple place cards for your Thanksgiving table – they’re super quick to make. You could even use them as cake toppers instead! (P.S. Did you know a group of turkeys is called a rafter?)

Butternut Squash Letters Name Cards DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Butternut squash is a very versatile winter squash. It can be roasted, mashed, pureed for soups, used in muffins or bread – AND can also be used to make these pretty Thanksgiving or holiday name “cards.” They can also adorn the top of pie with the words “Save Room” or “Thankful” or really anything else your heart desires.

A Traditional Thanksgiving

by Casey Baudoin

Hosting Thanksgiving this year?  I am making my grandma’s cherry pie, and bringing a bit of nature inside.  Using leaves from your yard for place settings, and garland, is such a great idea! I like keeping the decor simple, so I can focus on the turkey!

A Playful Thanksgiving

by Casey Baudoin

Make Thanksgiving dinner fun for the kids this year with bright, colorful decorations.  Keep them entertained with their own turkey (or chicken) to “carve”, and paper feathers they can decorate and hang before the meal begins!
