Hi there! It’s Megan from Homemade Ginger again. I’m back to share a super quick Thanksgiving craft that anyone can make and will look adorable on your table this year!
I love how Thanksgiving traditions can take on all shapes and sizes for each family. We are lucky enough to have a large family that all live in the same city. When we get together for Thanksgiving, there are about 30 people, and that is just immediate family! So, you can imagine that finding a place for everyone to sit and enjoy their meal can be quite a challenge. There are babies, kids, teens, grandparents and everyone in between. I love the idea of having place cards with everyone’s names on them so that there is no confusion as to where everyone belongs at the table.
This quick little craft can be used just as a decoration or you can make it into a name card for a place setting. Kids will love helping with these tiny turkeys. Each one will probably turn out a little different, giving them their own little personality. And the best part is that you can save these and use them year after year!
I was inspired by these turkeys but I wanted to make an option for it to become a name card holder!
Wine Cork Turkeys
The full tutorial is at the bottom of this post, but here is what you will need:
- Wine Corks
- Tiny Googly Eyes
- Hot Glue Gun
- Serrated Knife
These wine cork turkeys turned name card holders are so cute!
Wine Cork Turkeys
- For turkey name card holders, make a slit in the top of the cork with a serrated knife.
- Cut a tiny triangle out of yellow felt to make the beak. Glue it on the front of the cork with hot glue. Add the eyes as well.
- Cut 2 inch feather shapes out of different colours of felt and glue them to the back in a fanned out pattern.
- Add a small name card and place at each table setting for an extra special touch!
The perfect way to jazz up your Thanksgiving table this year!
