Happy Thanksgiving. Have a great weekend!

If you’re having a casual Thanksgiving dinner and you want to add a pop of color to your table, try cutting up old flannel shirts or leftover flannel fabric scraps for easy Thanksgiving napkins. There is something so cozy and warm about flannel at this time of year. And these napkins are great for the kid’s table too. You won’t be worried about messy little mouths and hands staining your good napkins.

To carry this theme a little further, add a hint of the outdoors. These drink coasters were made by cutting wooden rounds from trimmed tree branches.

Have you thought about using Thanksgiving placemats for kids? If you have a very traditional place setting for Thanksgiving dinner, the kids might feel left out. You can still include them by letting them help set the table. These gorgeous placemats will even show them where everything goes (and they can even color on them). A mini etiquette lesson and a future masterpiece–bonus.

For some kids, the muted colors and autumnal themes of Thanksgiving aren’t exciting at all. To liven up the kids table, these colorful placemats keep children happy and entertained (Robot and Jungle placemats also available). And don’t forget to include a stripey straw, handkerchief napkin, and fun utensils.

Thanksgiving Centerpiece Crafts: If you’re spending Thanksgiving with family this year, why not include a few extra relatives at the table? Find and scan some old pictures of family members you would like to remember, or some you or your kids never knew (or throw in some pictures of grandma and grandpa when they were younger). At dinner time, share any stories you or other relatives might know about your ancestors.

Supplies: old metal candlesticks (check the thrift store), spray paint, corks, paperclips, and scanned copies of old pictures

Directions: Spray paint the candlesticks. You might need to prime the candlesticks, depending on your spray paint. Give them a second coat if needed. Allow the paint to dry for a few days. The size of corks you’ll need will depend on your candlesticks. Craft stores sell bags with different sizes. Push a cork into the top of each candlestick and insert a paperclip into the cork. Make a small slit in the cork if needed to fit the paperclip. Slide your pictures into the top of the paperclip and arrange the candlesticks on your table.

There will be lots of children at our Thanksgiving table this year. My parents have 19 grandkids (and another on the way). With so many small kids around, you definitely need something for little ones to do while they’re waiting for last minute food preparations to finish up. You can use this faux pumpkin pie alongside any other Thanksgiving place card ideas you have. When the kids open up their “pie,” a variety of toys and fun activities will be waiting.

Supplies: spray adhesive, the printed faux pumpkin pies, disposable aluminum pans with cardboard/silver lids

Directions: Click on the images below to download the faux pumpkin pie top. To print the pumpkin pie top, email the file to any photo center (such as Costco) that prints in a 12 x 18″ photo size. Get the lustre finish. Cut the pie shape out and glue to the top of the cardboard/silver lid, on the white side, with spray adhesive. Fill your container with toys and prizes for the kiddos. Put the pie lid on top and crimp around the metal edges to keep the lid secure. Disposable aluminum pans can be found at most grocery stores.

Don’t have any small children at your Thanksgiving table? You can also use these as take home containers for  your guest to store their Thanksgiving leftovers. And stay tuned for directions on the candlestick centerpieces. Photos by Nicole Hill Gerulat. Pie photo by Sara Westbrook.
