Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers. I am taking the week off from blogging to enjoy my family and celebrate the holiday. I will be back to a regular blogging schedule starting the week of November 29th.
In the meantime, enjoy these cute little Thanksgiving figures I made for my grandchildren. I plan to put them on our Thanksgiving table along with some paper turkeys I crafted years earlier. My Thanksgiving table is filled with babies and pre-schoolers so no fancy table centerpieces for us. I use our nice china, but the decorations are something the grandkids can touch and play with.
I wish I could link to a tutorial of how I made these adorable Thanksgiving figures, but the link appears to be broken. I found the idea on Pinterest, but when I clicked on the link, it would just stall and never connect; so, I made them by just looking at the picture. They turned out pretty good for not having a template and/or instructions. I think the only thing I messed up on was the Pilgrim Ladies hat. Mine looks more like a chef's hat than a pilgrim's hat. 😁
If you haven't figured it out by looking at them, they are made using cardboard toilet paper rolls. I then cut all the "colored" pieces out using card stock and then I hand drew the faces, necklaces, and buttons on. They were a lot of fun to make!
