thanksgiving utensil centerpiece

we are still on turkey mode over here, 
even though christmas has already started in blogland.

so i made some thanksgiving cookies and will make the pies closer to actual turkey day (since i do not like molded pies-how do those other bloggers do it anyway? do they freeze everything?) 

so today i will make a kid's table centerpiece.

tada!
i got these at home goods for $3.99.
not knowing why i needed them til it hit me again like my usual ideas do in the middle of the night.
it's that divine intervention that always comes when i am dead asleep.

i wonder how many ideas i could have if i slept 24/7?
probably millions with no awake time to do any of them.
well, guess you gotta give a little here and there...

oh, back to the craft!
so really it's just taping and cutting and drawing on the utensils.

so you will turn this:
into this:
now grab a jar without the top of the lid and,
jeepers they better not have any pie or the jar will break.

here's hoping for a happy family turkey day celebration for you!

  1. Very cute! I see that the "kid's table" of my past - a wobbly card table covered in a loud crazy print, and that's it! - does not apply at my house or yours! My granddaughters would love these and would use them like puppets to act out the first TG. Then the boys would grab them and bop each other over the head. Then grandma (me - who won't ever be the "bad guy") would send grandpa over to take them all away! But then we'd eat and live happily ever after!
    lol - it may be Christmas in blogland for everyone else but I haven't even photographed my turkey project yet! By the time I do the web will be hoppin' with bunnies!

  2. Great designs. My mom used to paint spoons when I was a kid, so these bring back so many memories of the craft shows she used to put on in our garage.

  4. So cute! And a great idea! I'm saving this one until my Great Grands are old enough to sit at their own table! As for brilliant thoughts at night.....I do that, too. I also get them while on the pot. Why do you suppose that is? Nothing else to think about at those times? Whatever it takes, you're ideas are spectacular!!!! Your BBFF, Dona
