I love decorating fake pumpkins. I wanted to try something new and fun for Thanksgiving that can be used every year. Here is how you can make a Chalkboard Pumpkin!
You will need:
-a large fake pumpkin
-White and gold acrylic paint (or whatever colors you want)
-Chalkboard spray paint(got mine for under $5 at Walmart)
First I painted my pumpkin white and painted the stem and some fake leaves gold. Allow to dry. Then section off a square on the front of the pumpkin with the masking tape and cover the rest of the pumpkin with some paper so that you don't get any of the chalkboard paint on other areas.
Then spray the area you sectioned off with the chalkboard spray paint and allow to dry. It actually dries very quickly. Remove the tape and paper. I then glued on some glitter around the edges as well as on the stem. I also glued the gold leaves I painted on the top with a hot glue gun.
Then write whatever message you want with some chalk. A fun and easy craft for your Thanksgiving decor!
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.
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.

Simply cut out the stem and make a big enough hole to fit a tealight candle.
Wow your guests this Thanksgiving with this pumpkin centerpiece!
All you need is:

Remove the stem of the pumpkin and cut a big enough hole that can fit the mason jar. Scoop out the "guts" inside the pumpkin and then place the mason jar inside. Fill the mason jar with some decorative moss and also fill any gaps you see with the moss as well. Then get creative and stick some festive leaves and flowers in the mason jar.
Cranberries are so pretty and festive. This easy cranberry candle is perfect for Thanksgiving and even Christmas!
You will need:
-small glass bowl
I bought a small glass bowl from the dollar tree and simply filled it up with cranberries that I bought from Shoprite. Next I poured in the water. Be careful not to pour too much. Lastly I put in the tealight candle in the center. See, I told you it was easy!
