Oldie but Goodie Turkey Day Crafts
Holy cow, I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is this week! I have a lot on my plate at the moment, in t he non-food department, but I wanted to pop in and share a couple of my previous tutorials that are still as fresh as ever.
Crocheters, dig through your scraps and whip up some of these festive autumn leaves using my pattern/tutorial at Craftstylish. Each leaf takes oh….five minutes to make? Use various yarn weights to change the sizes and you’re good to go. I like the idea of scattering them on the table, or connecting them with a long chain to make a garland. Be sure to block the leaves to get the points in shape.
No matter your skill level, you can make your own place cards, which can be just as simple as stickers on a sheet of paper (as seen in the leaf photo). Here, I sandwiched different patterned and solid papers with felt flowers and sewed them all together for crafty effect. Check out my tutorial here. If you use cute cardstock, there’s really not a whole lot else you need to do to make your table fun!
And just in case you need something to show off your homemade rolls–the best part of the feast in my opinion!–sew up one of these coiled fabric baskets. Making them is mesmerizing, and might be a welcome break from your holiday stress. They also make great hostess gifts. Here’s my tutorial, again from an old Craftstylish post.
Hope your holidays are full of fun and sharing!
