Thanksgiving is approaching! And while I do love the holiday, family gatherings, huge meals, no pressure to buy presents, I must admit I’m horrible about decorating for it! Honestly I just want to put up my Christmas as soon as I take down Halloween….but alas, mister won’t allow such things. 😥
So a few years back I made a couple of small thanksgiving type items I’d thought I’d share with you. While I don’t have instructions written out, I do believe they are pretty easy to mock!
You will need felt pieces in whatever colors you choose.
Embroidery floss to match your felt.
And get creative here, ribbons for garland, magnets to glue on, etc.
All I did was go online and print out a couple of different leaf and turkey templates. Look for the simplest shaped ones.
Then for the leaves, trace and cut two in different colors. I then just cut out some “slits”, this will allow your bottom color to show through.
Use your embroidery floss to sew them together.
The turkey was a bit more time consuming but I insisted it needed to be done in all separate pieces.
Simple! I glued magnets to mine so I can put them up on the fridge! Or you can make a garland with the turkey in the center and lots of leaves on the sides!!
Here are some close up shots:
Simple! Hope you enjoy!
