Thanksgiving is just around the corner! What are you doing to celebrate? This year I am going to two Thanksgivings. I will start the day with my side of the family, at my grandmother's house, and end the day with my husband's family. How will I eat two Thanksgiving dinners you ask? Well, it's all about strategy! I have favorite things at both places, so I take small samples of everything, but indulge in my favorite items. Plus, there is nothing like your own family's food, and I am going to them first.
While I am busy obsessing over my Thanksgiving eating strategies, here is a craft to get you in the mood for the big day. All you need are leaves, glue, brown paper or a brown paper bag, and white paper.
Step 1: Dry out and press your leaves by placing them in a book between wax paper for 36 hours. This step is totally not necessary, but it makes them a little easier to glue. It also makes them a lot less pliable.
Step 2: Cut out your turkey body and place it on your white paper.
Step 3: Arrange your leaves around the turkey and glue them down. Don't forget to add a face!
I love how it showcases the amazing colors of Fall that I am obsessed with! I actually missed the turn to my grandma's house the other day because I was too busy staring at foliage. Isn't it amazing how bright the colors are after pressing also? I love it!
