decorating with what you have - thanksgiving table craft #1

for my first table decorating idea i decided to let the kids help.  we need place cards for the table.  i had some old paper stock laying around so we made place cards out of that.  you can do any size or shape your table will allow.  i cut squares out and folded them in half.

i then found pictures of turkeys online and cut and pasted them into a word document and printed them.
i cut them out and then brady helped me glue them onto the place cards.

i then wrote the names of all our guests on the place cards and then let the kids color all the turkeys and place cards.

below is our finished product.

(i love how purple became the primary color if not the only color on most of them)

over the next week i will be putting my table together with crafty projects using what i have laying around the house.  i have some old material scraps i will be using to make place settings and napkins... stay tuned!

what ideas are you using to decorate your table?
