Pinecone Turkey Place Cards.

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is a mere two weeks from today. Every other year I host my side of the family and guess what? This is my year. Luckily I don't do all the cooking (my mother still takes care of the turkey) but I am in charge of the decor. 



Yesterday I made these cute pinecone turkeys for our place cards. They're simple to create, cost next to nothing and will add just the right amount of charm to your holiday table.

Click "read more" below for the full tutorial.

You'll need to gather a few supplies:
-1 1/2" wood discs. You need one for each place card.
-Feathers
-Pine cones
-Hot glue gun + hot glue




Arrange and glue the feathers one by one to the wood disc. I used seven feathers for each place card and arranged them according to size. I placed the largest feather in the center and worked my way to the smallest feather on each side of the disc.


Next, glue the pinecone to the wood disc.


To attach the names, I simply put a dab of hot glue on the edge of the paper and secured it to the pinecone.

  9. Thank you for all of your kind comments! The pinecones were donated by my sweet elderly neighbors. They have a gorgeous yard and a lot of pine trees. I purchased the feathers at a craft store a couple of years ago. I think most craft stores would have them, I found mine at Michaels.
