Holiday Projects

I am amazed at the cool and AFFORDABLE projects I have discovered by reading blogs this year. And by sharing ideas with friends. I found this idea on A Pumpkin and a Princess, which I found while reading a link on Thirty Handmade Days that I stumbled upon while reading my favorite blog, The Pleated Poppy. Follow me? Anyway, check out these blogs for more great decorating ideas.
So, I borrowed the Give Thanks bunting idea from A Pumpkin and a Princess...
and we made the Thanksgiving Turkey years ago when we were heading home for Thanksgiving and I wanted a way for our family to record what we were thankful for. I got the idea from Parents magazine. Carson made the boy pilgrim at preschool, then instructed me on how to make a girl pilgrim. They are made from toilet paper rolls. The Mayflower namecard holders are also from this year's November Parents magazine. Carson actually helped make them. I even let him use the glue gun! He thought that was awesome.

And, here's a sneak peek at what's to come. Next post. :)
