Now that fall is here, our DIY and crafting game is in full swing! This season just involves so many wonderful opportunities to get creative, between the harvest celebrations that happen and the spooky element of Halloween. Sometimes we even spend parts of our fall doing winter themed things early in the lead up to snowfalls and Christmas! For now, however, we’re on the hunt for amazing Thanksgiving projects that we can make for ourselves or help our kids make.
If you’re feeling just as intrigued as we are, if not more, in the idea of learning how to make new DIY Thanksgiving projects and crafts this year, check out these 15 adorable ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search!
1. Cute Thanksgiving paper turkey hat
Are your kids the kind of little costume enthusiasts who enjoy playing dress up all year round, even for holidays that aren’t actually necessarily costume based? Then we think we might have found just the tutorial for you right off the bat! Check out how Momdot did some very fun paper crafting in order to make these adorable little turkeys that attach to the front of a paper band in order to make a silly hat.
2. Little paper bag turkey craft
In our house, some of the most popular crafts are usually the ones that involve turning some kind of regular household item into something else adorable, giving it some kind of character and personification that our kids can customize. That’s why we thought these miniature paper bag turkeys were such a cute idea! Eighteen 25 shows you how make them happen using googly eyes, mini clothespins, rhinestones, and cut pieces of ribbon for tail feathers.
3. Thanksgiving corn snack packs
If there were ever a kind of craft that goes over even better with our kids than a project they can make, transforming a regular thing into something else, and then play with after, it’s a project that involves eating as well! That’s why we thought these funny little paper harvest corns that Kix shows you how to fill with delicious munchies like a snack pack were worth bookmarking right away.
4. Paper glitter turkey
Have we actually really caught your attention with the idea of making simple paper turkeys because your kids are quite young and you already know that’s a kind of craft they enjoy and can handle, but you can’t help wondering whether you can’t keep the process a little more exciting? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Crafts By Amanda fully glittered their birds so they have a little extra fun shine!
