Thanksgiving Crafts for Adults

Keep the adults busy this turkey day with festive Thanksgiving crafts for adults. Visit your local craft store and purchase supplies or assign one supply to each guest to bring to a craft-making party. Spend time with friends and family and have fun at the same time with these Thanksgiving craft projects for adults.

Get creative with these Thanksgiving craft ideas:

  • Turkey wreath: Create a turkey wreath for a beautiful front door decoration. Purchase a large variety of fake fabric flowers in the colors orange and brown. Cut the petals off of the flowers and use them as feathers for the turkey. Use a glue gun and glue the feathers on a standard brown wreath made of branches. Make the face of the turkey with a Styrofoam ball. Paint the ball brown, add googly eyes, and make the beak out of card stock. Make the turkey’s wattle with either red card stock paper or remnants of a red latex balloon.
  • Napkins: Make fantastic personalized Thanksgiving napkins. Purchase plain cloth napkins from your local home goods store. Request that guests bring iron-on letters that represent their initials. Purchase iron-on Thanksgiving symbols such as turkeys, acorns, pinecones, and leaves. Let guests have a blast with the craft and send them home with the favors.
  • Wine glasses: Paint beautiful wine glasses with your guests for Thanksgiving. Supply stencils such as leaves, acorns, and foliage. Purchase enamel paint and paintbrushes, or paint pens at your local craft store for the project. Once dry, apply additional coats of paint. Send guests home at the end of the party with their wine glass as a party favor.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving arts and crafts! With these simple ideas you can create wonderful, personalized decorations to enjoy as you eat, drink, and be merry.
