Hi, everyone! I’m Claire, and I’m taking over my mom’s blog today. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays…probably because my birthday is around it. I was even born on Thanksgiving!! This year, it’s the day before. I’ll be 10 years old.
One of my favorite crafts is these turkey place cards for Thanksgiving, so I’m going to tell you how to make them.
First, you need…
- red felt
- candy corn
- pompoms (I used black, but any color will work)
- wiggle eyes
- hot glue gun
- AND some cold water, in case you burn yourself with the hot glue gun like I did
Take a pinecone and some feathers, and squeeze the glue onto the pinecone and stick a feather in it. Add about 5 more feathers with the glue.
Next, glue some wiggle eyes onto the pompom.
Add a piece of candy corn to it for the nose.
Cut a gobbler out of the red felt, and glue it on the pompom.
Finally, glue the pompom onto the pinecone.
Be careful…this is when I burned myself! Ouch!!!
Type the names of your family members, and print them on card stock. Cut them into strips and put them in the pinecones.
That’s it…all done!
Great job, Claire!!! Inspiration for my girls to make for our table 🙂
