Crafty DIY Thanksgiving Décor Ideas for Everyone

Even the smallest members of your family can get into the act with these DIY Thanksgiving decorations. Make outlines of their hands on paper, cut them out, and attach them to a brown paper plate (you can paint white ones brown, should you need to), then add a paper turkey “head.” Feathers can come from crepe paper or even candy corn — make turkey bodies from Oreo cookies, with candy corn for tail feathers and a malted milk ball for the bird’s head. Make place cards for the family from yellow card stock with felt or colored paper shapes of pilgrim hats, clothing, hair, and even faces. Leaf prints are great options, too; trace leaves on paper, cut out, and string together for a mantelpiece, or use real dried leaves as a base for a pumpkin carved with leaf designs.

Use a pumpkin for a turkey body and skewers with alternate fruit and cheese for the “feathers,” and you’ve got an edible centerpiece. One adorable turkey is a lemon body, pine cone head, and red autumn leaf for tail feathers; buy craft “eyes” and assemble a beak out of paper or even a piece of carrot or fruit. Have the kids do paint palm prints on burlap; then attach those prints to gift bags, place mats, or a “Thanksgiving tree.” Decorate yourself, too: use tiny “pumpkins” for earrings or string brown, green, orange, and red beads on a necklace with a ceramic pumpkin-shaped center. Take a look at these, and you’ll soon be inspired: this décor uses material most of us have in the house anyway. Get everyone involved and have fun!
