Set aside the pilgrims, the turkey and the pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving is a universal concept: giving thanks!
When it comes to thinking of crafts for this holiday, I get very sentimental. I like for people to remember the main focus. My projects are not polished or Martha-worthy, but they certainly come straight from the heart. My heart!
I hope you like these and find a way to adapt them to your own liking!
Use your scrapbooking skills to create a one-of-a-kind placemat. The fun part is that this project presents a list of family trivia questions! See who knows the most about everyone in the family! We all know it will be Nana, but it’s fun to try, right? I printed and laminated a placemat for my brother, sister and mom (and one for me too!). Use color copies of pictures, a glue stick and whatever accents you want. You can have them professionally laminated at a copy store, or you can use clear vinyl and sew them, or use clear contact paper. (The top placemat is one I made for my friend, Amy)
These are cute mini-canvases and easels (I found these at Michaels) that you can decorate with happy themes for your meal and gathering! You can decoupage them with family pictures and use them for place settings. They will make cute takeaways for your guests!
Every Thanksgiving tablescape could use some new spice this year – and I’m not talking about Auntie’s pumpkin pie. I’m referring to conversation starters and activities. This Rubik’s Cube will get the crowd going, especially because it will have family pictures on it!
Peace, love, and glitter!
