Great results roundup: Thanksgiving

Hi friends, Although no one ended up sending in photos of their leaf crafts for last week's impromptu contest, I did receive photos of other Thanksgiving crafts from two regular readers and I though it might be nice to show you what they've been up to. Reader Huguette whipped up this handsome turkey napkin holder. She says she's "not too crafty," but one look at this makes me think otherwise. Don't you agree? handmade-turkey-napkin-holder Secondly, reader Debbie W. made these cute candy-filled centrepieces for her Thanksgiving table; she notes they'd be great for a Halloween party, too. (This one was about to be boxed up and sent to a very lucky person, hence the tape.) pumpkin-with-candyIn Debbie's words, here's how you could create something similar for your own Halloween party: "I found these cute little pumpkin ceramic dishes at a local retailer ($6) and picked up some flower foam ($1). Once I got the glue gun warmed up I had a blast. Just a dabble of hot glue on a wooden coffee stir stick secures the treat-size candies securely. The rockets were secured with clear elastics. The fun little webs and pumpkins are hair accessories attached to the stir sticks. I played with the arrangement and came up with this." Pretty fun, don't you think? The only problem I can see would be gluing/arranging more candy bars than I ate! Thank you so much for sharing your ideas, Huguette and Debbie! If anybody else out there has a recent craft you're really proud of, why not tell me about it?
