PINE CONE TURKEY TUTORIAL!!!
|THANKSGIVING TABLE DECOR|
6 rainbow colors of chenille stems
a pine cone,
one brown pom pom,
an orange fat/skinny chenille stem (shaped like a snowman nose)
Wrap the chenille stems around the bottom circumference of the pine cone and twist once so you have the 2 end parts sticking out like a V. Then twist those 2 together at the ends to make one teardrop shaped loop, or like a bunny's ear. Do this again with a different color. Make all the loops on one side of the pine cone so they look like a turkey's feathers. I make sure the pine cone can sit level on a table too.
I start with red and do orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, the order of the rainbow. Then take a glue gun and add a brown pom pom for the head on the other side of all these cute feathers. Add 2 googly eyes purchased from Hobby Lobby or Walmart. Lastly, add a snipped off piece of the orange fat chenille stem. They end up looking like a carrot but are perfect for a turkey " beak".

|PINE CONE TURKEY CRAFT and PLACECARD TUTORIAL|
I purchased these kiddie melamine plates at Target for the upcoming Christmas holiday dinner. And they had placemats and bowls to match at Target. I love that store. I could easily make a simple snowman tablecloth if I want to matchy-match. That might be easier than placemats since my kiddie table is kinda tiny. I'll have to see what kind of fabric they have at Hobby Lobby tomorrow.
Pottery Barn Kids had some DARLING plates and cups and decorations for holiday tables but I wasn't keen on paying $14.00 for 1 little plate. But it is great for ideas and it sure is fun to browse the beautiful store and enjoy their great decorations. Just trekking down to Trolley Square in Salt Lake is always a fun adventure anyways.
