With America’s Thanksgiving holiday just a few days away, so many of us are making last minute preparations in the sewing room: napkins, place mats, table cloths and runners, maybe even a few embellished napkin rings. If you’re fortunate enough to have all your crafting already finished, why not whip up some less mainstream projects? Sew up a centerpiece or two by creating a fabric turkey or cornucopia stuffed with adorable fabric pumpkins.

Get the kids involved and make turkey hand print shirts or just knit up some fun by making a little one a turkey hat. And don’t forget a quick and easy hostess gift like this potpourri pie.

Have a favorite off-the-wall holiday craft? Be sure to share it here!

    OMG!!! Talk about CUTE! What a great idea, not only does it look sweet but you can use it year round or give them away after the festivities as a memento for that year of thanksgiving.
