Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks and share your home
with loved ones. As everyone gathers
together for a wonderful day of celebration, we would like to share a few craft
ideas that will make the day more fun and decorative.
These personalized place card are made from miniature clay flowerpots and are
so easy to do. We have one for adults
that should be made in advance and another for children. These are as simple as a few glue sticks,
feathers, candy, or markers. Have a
place set up in the morning so when the children arrive they have a place to
sit and get started. Make sure that
there is always adult supervision. This
will give the children something to do why the adults watch football and cook.
Gather 3”clay flowerpots. We have them in many sizes
including the 3”so click here to shop.

Decorate the pots by painting each black and allow to dry. Choose a color to paint the band around the
top of each pot. Let dry. Make white
dots on the rest of each by dipping the handle end of the paintbrush in white
and dotting the pots surface.
Add brims by tracing a circle from black foam about ˝ inch wider all around
then the pot opening using a glass lid. Cut out.
Make the buckles by measuring the width of the band, cut a rectangle from foam
that measures about 1/8” deeper than the band.
Cut out a smaller rectangle from the center. Glue the buckle to band and
Lastly, personalize each pot hat with the paint pen.
