3 Easy Thanksgiving DIY Decorations

 1)Thankful Turkey

You’ll start this project with a pinecone (large one). Then, cut feather shapes from   scrapbook paper (TIP: crease them in half lengthwise and fringe the edges with   scissors). Next make 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. This thankful turkey can be a decoration all month long or made for your Thanksgiving feast.

2)Pumpkin Flower Arrangement

Pumpkin flower arrangements are simple to make and really stand out. First, hollow out a pumpkin, then place an appropriate sized vase inside  (or you can use a block of wet floral foam). Lastly, fill  the vase or floral foam with your favorite fall blooms.

3)Giving Thanks Placemat

For quick and easy homemade place settings, start with brown craft paper and create space for each guest to write a list of things they’re thankful for. The lists will make for great dinner conversations and the kids really enjoy getting to color them! Tip: Save them and take a look back each year.
