Tee Pee Treats

Fun Thanksgiving craft for the kiddos and even better…the minute they are done creating they can dig in and munch away!

What you need:

  • Sugar Cones
  • Pretzels
  • Chocolate frosting or Nutela
  • Candy Sprinkles

Cut a little snip off the top of cone so the pretzels can fit down inside.  Put some chocolate frosting or Nutella on the tip top and on the bottom rim and dip in sprinkles!!!  I didn’t have any on hand but leaf sprinkles would be super cute and festive as well!

Turkey Flowerpot Craft

Here is a fun and super easy craft for the kiddos!  Turkey’s made out of upside down flowerpots!

What you will need:

  • Small Flowerpot
  • Googly Eyes
  • Brown, Orange or Yellow craft foam or construction paper
  • Feathers
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Turkey Flowerpots

Turn the flowerpot upside down and glue on googly eyes and the feathers.  I took craft foam and cut out a beak and free handed the feet and glued them all on.  I took a round paper punch and punched out a circle of brown construction paper to glue on the top of the flowerpots so you didn’t see the hole.  We wrote “Happy Thanksgiving” on them with a silver pen.  That’s it…super cute to use as a decoration for Thanksgiving or even use as place settings for Thanksgiving dinner…instead of “Happy Thanksgiving” on the top you could write each individuals name!

Autumn Lanterns

These Autumn lanterns are pretty and easy to make. And perfect for the Thanksgiving table!

Here is what you need:

  • Mason Jar
  • Mod Podge
  • Leaves (Real or Fake)
  • Sponge Brush
  • Candle
  • Decorative Ribbon

If you use real leaves, make sure they are dried well and not damp from being outside on the ground. You can lay them out on a piece of newspaper to dry thoroughly, it may take up to 24 hours to get them completely dry.

You may also want newspaper to protect your table.

I used fake leaves so the first thing I did was pull the green plastic stem off the backs of the leaves so they would lay flat on the jar. It also helped to get them wet first with some warm water (this helped shape the fake ones better).


You can either coat your jar with a layer of mod podge or coat each leaf with mod podge (or both).


Layer leaves around on the glass, overlapping slightly in a pretty pattern.


Let your jars dry overnight. If you happen to have any stubborn edges that pop up, just apply another coat of mod podge over them…try using a rubber band to hold down the stubborn edge.

I let my jar dry about 24 hours.

Tie a pretty bow around the top of the jar, place a candle inside and light it up for a pretty autumn lantern.


 Make up a few of these and place them down the center of the table for Thanksgiving! So pretty!
