Guest Crafting with Danielle Thompson!

Remember the super fun and super cute arrow tutorial our friend Danielle shared with us?  Well, she’s back again with a Thanksgiving perfect quickie craft to keep little hands busy while you are putting the finishing touches on the Turkey.
You just need some pine cones, cotton balls, glue and a color printer to download these great feathers digital kit from Kitschy Digital.
I know, gorgeous, right?  And then:
  • Just opened the digital feather files in Photoshop, reduced them in size when needed, print them and then cut them out.  You don’t have Photoshop–no worries–the kit includes a PDF that you can just print out.
  • Attach feathers to a pine cone with glue.
  • Attach little cotton ball for head and be awed by the adorableness your little cutie created all by him or herself.
  • If you are ahead of schedule you can even create little beaks with some wood grain contact paper.
You could also create a place card with your guests’ names and slip it into the pine cone in front of the feathers.. or just write your guest’s name on one of the feathers! Color me sold!

Danielle says, “Kids would have fun creating these, but I also think they’d be great for your vintage/kitschy inspired dinner table.  Break out your Pyrex and vintage dinnerware, and these kitschy pine cone turkeys will fit right in!”

I agree!

Thanks, Danielle for sharing this charming addition to any kiddie table! You are welcome at our Thanksgiving dinner table anytime!
