Craft Roundup: Thanksgiving Printables DIY Projects
Give your family holiday decorations and activities an original twist with make-your-own place mats, coloring sheets, banners and more with these templates
Do you like to use printables in your crafting? I'm always very appreciative when a crafter takes the time to not only create something fun that I might like to include in my own work, but offers it up for us to try at home. This week's roundup features a collection of projects that include some sort of printable component, like thanks-focused banners and two different takes on coloring activity sheets.
My Sister's Suitcase has a free, printable Thanksgiving activity place mat that is sure to keep younger crafters entertained at the holiday dinner table. Check out her post for a roundup of other holiday printables you can try at home, too.
If you'd like your place mats to be used again and again on the big day, try Ardor Blog's erasable coloring sheets! She offers three holiday themes to choose from for Thanksgiving.
The Paper Source blog has created a printable "Give Thanks" banner that can be added to a wreath, Thanksgiving artwork created by your children or as part of a centerpiece. Check out their post for an idea on how to add it to a harvest-themed burlap wreath.
Have your family share reasons why they're thankful this holiday season by creating a thankful turkey mason jar. Strips of paper on top of the jar act as ready-to-write notes. Cosmo Cricket includes a turkey head printable for you to add to the jar for a modern, sleek look.
