Sorry to ditch you like that last week.
About a week and a half ago, I decided to throw a friend’s thanksgiving dinner on Sunday. With the help of my awesome friend, Andrea, we had an amazing meal last night with 13 of our friends. It was great, but required a lot of planning, especially since I’ve never cooked a meal of that magnitude before. I’ll fill you in on more of the details (and recipes!) tomorrow.
For today, I thought I’d show off a cute little project I made as one of my friend’s thanksgiving preparations. (Idea
stolen borrowed from here).
Basically, I grabbed red, orange, and yellow construction paper and cut tail feathers, a beak, and that red hangy piece that stretches down the turkey’s neck (it’s name escapes me right now). And I cut little turkey feet from a thin piece of cardboard (think cereal box material). Then, I glued everything together with my hot glue gun.
The whole thing took about 5 minutes.
And the two little girls at the party loved them.
That is, until one fell on the floor and Jezebel devoured it. Oops.
Today I’m joining Kim’s super-awesome Dare to Be Thankful party, mostly because I think Kim is awesome (umm… her & her hubby just tore down their garage & built a new one in like 3 weeks. so impressive!). Head on over to check out other super-rad Thanksgiving ideas. I’m also linking up to the DIY Show Off’s Fall Festival & The Shabby Nest’s Frugal Friday – two other inspiring sources for ideas!
