So yeah. I am hosting Thanksgiving at my house. 20 people, from ALL sides of the family! I am REALLY looking forward to meeting my brother’s fiance’s family. My brother has been engaged since August, and we have not met her family yet! I KNOW!
Whenever I host thanksgiving, I like to add special touches to the gathering. It’s easy to do this without spending a whole bunch of money on new things. I don’t like to go out and spend money on ” Things”. ” Things” clutter up my house. I like to work on crafts that can be ” disposable”.
To make these cute little turkey leg drink charms. I used 1 sheet of white craft foam and 1 sheet of felt. Cute and cheap.
I cut the white craft foam out to make it look like the shape of a turkey leg. I chose to use craft foam instead of felt for the base because I wanted these to be sturdy. I then hot glued brown felt to each turkey leg.
This did not take me long at all. I think they turned out cute!
I then used ” puffy paint and wrote everyone’s name on their turkey leg charm.
So if you must know. These are the folks who will be joining us for Thanksgiving.
On each charm, I attached a jewelry ” hoop” from the craft store and ribbon. I attached ribbon, because my Thanksgiving guest might drink water or milk or beer. Other things besides wine. They can use the ribbon to tie their charm to their drink.
I think these are a nice conversation piece. Also, they are much cuter then making everyone wear name tags!!!
