8 Quick and Easy Projects for A Handmade Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is often the best time to get the family together -- how about having a Pre-Thanksgiving crafting hour!? It's also a great way to keep kids occupied, as you and the rest of the family make preparations for the main event.

Kids can decide what kind of fruit and vegetables go into the Cornucopia. Show them how to wrap yarn to make the Pompom turkey. Or my all-time favorite: play hide and seek with your very own Tom Turkey while waiting for guests to arrive or food to be served!

Display finished works in the hallway, living room, or dining room table for a handmade centerpiece that makes a great conversation starter at dinnertime. I've selected a few quick and easy inspirational projects to get you started on your handmade Thanksgiving:

    Here's the turkey pattern I made! Still need to add last leg for mine! Fun, free pattern and I love that his tail is made of small granny squares! http://www.petalstopicots.com/2013/11/thanksgiving-turkey-crochet-pattern/
