Craft Roundup: Thanksgiving DIY Fun

Mmm – Turkey Day is coming! Gobble up this tasty holiday with cool projects, from dinner table place card holders to classic turkey-inspired shirts and more.

Seems like we fly from one holiday to the next at the end of the year! We're just a few short weeks away from Thanksgiving 2012, so it's time to start thinking turkey crafting. What kind of Thanksgiving projects does your family like to make in November? Here are some thoughts to get southeast Michigan families' creative juices flowing.

 

Handprint Turkey Shirt

Make these hands-on shirts (literally!) for your children this Thanksgiving as a great way to mark their size from holiday to holiday. Get the how-to from It's Gravy, Baby!

 

Indian Corn Napkin Ring

As you start to think about how you'll set your holiday table, make sure to get the little crafters in your house involved. These Indian corn napkin rings, by Sugar Bee Crafts, are a great way to get everyone helping – and making the most of your button jar.

 

Thanksgiving Turkey Placecard Holder

You don't need a lot of fancy supplies to have a craft project at the ready! The Happier Homemaker created this turkey place card holder with a piece of scrap wood and some Popsicle sticks. Easy as can be.

 

Pinecone Turkey Craft

Take a look at your backyard when it comes time for your next craft store supply run. This festive project on Amazing Moms takes a pinecone and some tissue paper to create a fun turkey that would look great as part of a centerpiece.
