Thanksgiving Crafting

Just popping in to share a few Thanksgiving crafts we've been working on the past few days, along with links....

Super easy - we used a glue gun to attach everything and stuck a magnet on the back to decorate the fridge.

These took more doing; we worked on them a bit at a time in between doing other things. I look forward to putting these little guys out on my mantel each year.

My boys didn't want to make these, so it was just the girls and I yesterday morning. We followed the tutorial exactly and I love how they came out. We used regular markers (not washable) and the rubber gloves recommended in the tutorial definitely came in handy (though my fingers still got a bit dyed).

I love how they look with the sun shining through the window!

This morning we made these cute little gumdrop turkeys from the November issue of Family Fun. Basically you just take big gumdrops, small gumdrops, and mini chocolate chips and make turkeys out of them. A bit of frosting comes in handy if the gumdrops won't stick. We cut pieces of gumdrops to make wattles, feet, wings, etc. Cute and inexpensive.

I'm off now to make the cranberry bread from Cranberry Thanksgiving with Rose. She was quite insistent that we have it for Thanksgiving, so we decided it would make a lovely breakfast.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
