Every so often, I have the kids make the Thanksgiving Place Cards. We usually make them with white cardstock and construction paper. This year is different.
First we gather 14 small clay pots. The instructions say to use 3″ pots, but I never read instructions; therefore, I brought home 1.5″ pots.
The girls painted each pot black.
Then they picked a fall color and painted the band of the hat.
After the paints were dry, I wrote the names of all the guests on the brim, using a permanent marker. Once that was done the girls glued on a yellow buckle, and a black foam circle for the brim.
I think they turned out rather cute. We will be keeping these for our next years Thanksgiving decorations.
You can find the instructions for these at Better Homes and Garden.
