last-minute Thanksgiving centerpiece! I save and hang all of our old chains downstairs in the basement on a coat rack. It's quite a sight.
The thankful chain is a great idea, but I wasn't feeling the love for it this year.
I started looking for ideas along the same lines and found this turkey. Instead of writing on strips you write the things you're thankful for on the turkey "feathers".
So, I brainstormed a little.
I have a grapevine pumpkin on my kitchen table that I won in a gift swap at a friend's Fall Party last year and I knew I could make it work as the body of a turkey thanks to our beloved Mr. Turkey. If you click that link, prepare yourself. I got a little teary-eyed because my kids were sooooo little in that picture.
I pulled out my Silhouette and used the curve shape tool to design and cut some feathers--large and small. Please don't ask me how exactly I did it because I can't remember. If you want me to email you my Silhouette feather file, I'll happily share.
Voila!--our Thankful Turkey centerpiece. I LOVE it!
