As Thanksgiving planning and shopping begins I always try to come up with something fun that will be memorable.
I love doing fun little things at the place settings when the whole family gets together. Do you?
Here's a fun project that I posted before...but some are worth highlighting again. Whether your hosting a book club meeting -- or just looking for a fun place-setting for your Thanksgiving dining table, this is an easy project that will get lots of smiles.
It was in a recipe circular from the grocery store chain FOOD LION a few years back. Gobbler Cookies
What you'll need::
Nutter Butter Cookies (this will be the body on your turkey)
Fudge Stripe Cookies (this makes his pretty tail!)
Small Pretzel Knots or Choc Covered Flipz (his feet!)
Candy Corn (for the beak)
Gummy Worms (for the gobbler!)
Almond Slivers (for his spiky hair)
Small Choc Chips (for the eyes)
and white icing to hold it all together
These turned out SOOO cute, but they did take a while to put together.
Here's another adorable and much quicker idea. Use some tulle to create a little hobo knot of M&Ms. The fall colors look prettiest! Then a few well placed pipecleaners and wobbly eyes -- you're done, and your guests have a little sweet treat to take home. GoBbLe * GObBlE
Look at the picture and then get creative!!
