Christmas Bulb Wreath
I have never made a Christmas Bulb Wreath before. It was really simple and I love how it came out.
You will need:
-Plastic Christmas bulbs ( got a canister of 50)
Unravel the top of the hanger to separate it. Then shape the hanger into a circle (wreath shape). Then begin placing the the ornaments on the wire hanger by pulling the wire through the loop at the top of the ornaments. Once you have filled up the hanger with ornaments secure the top by twisting the wire. I create a loop with the wire for easy hanging. Then tie a bow with the ribbon at the top of the wreath. This will also help cover up any wire that is exposed.
Paper Bag Turkeys
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? If you are a teacher or looking for a fun Thanksgiving craft activity to keep the kids occupied, you will love this!
All you need is a paper bag, googly eyes and construction paper. Have the kids write what they are thankful for. These Turkeys also make for really cute puppets.
Popcorn Paper Bag Turkey Leg
This is a fun Thanksgiving craft that is also a snack! Kids can help make this and it is great for them to snack on until Thanksgiving dinner is ready. You can also personalize by writing their name on it.
- a paper bag
-white card stock paper
Fill the paper bag with popcorn about half way. With some scissors just trim some length off the paper bag from the top to just shorten the bag a bit.
With the white card stock paper draw a bone. Cut it out and glue at the top of the paper bag on the inside. The scrunch the paper together and glue to secure.
I love mini pumpkins! They are so cute, easy to work with and affordable. I always try to look for creative ways to decorate with mini pumpkins. With Thanksgiving approaching here are some easy ways to use mini pumpkins to dress up the Thanksgiving table.
Candle: Purchase a long candle stick. Remove the mini pumpkin stem and then simply insert the candle. The pumpkins make for a very festive candle holder.
Centerpiece: I purchased a glass cylinder at Walmart and simply placed the mini pumpkins inside. You can dress it up some more by adding acorns, leaves, pine cones etc..
Mini Pumpkin Turkey: This is a fun craft activity for kids and it is SUPER easy to make. All you need is a mini pumpkin, foam paper, fake leaves and googly eyes.
