The other day it was 80° here. That’s right, November 6th, 2015 was a record-breaking 80° passing the 1948 temperature of 78°. I made me wonder if this is how those closer to the Equator or in the Southern Hemisphere feel, getting ready for the holiday season in short-sleeves and flip-flops. Regardless of warm weather, that will probably be a lovely memory tomorrow, we are still sneaking up on Thanksgiving at a rather fast pace. And that means it is time to get your Thanksgiving Craft on!
But where oh where to start? Oh, sister! I’ve got you covered! I’ve put together a list of Thanksgiving crafts that are super cute and very festive! I’ve got some for the kiddos to make, and some for a little personal DIY time (aka, regain your sanity time.) Some may be more complicated than others, but all of them will bring a little seasonal pumpkin spice to your home.

Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids

You can always make those Turkey Hands, and my kids love doing that, but sometimes you want something a little outside of the box.

Thanksgiving Crafts for Your Table

A cornucopia is what classically adorns a Thanksgiving tablescape, but these days there is so much inspiration out that you don’t have to feel stuck with what’s always been done.
