Countdown to Thanksgiving - Turkey Napkin Rings

One of my favorite Thanksgiving crafts that I think I have ever made and shared are my Turkey Napkin Rings.  They are a lot of fun to make and really brighten up the table.  I used cardboard paper towel tubes to make the rings, just in case you are wondering. 

I painted the tube dark brown, and then once it was dry cut it into 6 pieces for an inch and a half each.  I used cardstock in fall colors for the rest of the turkey. 

I used circle punch to make the head. I free hand cut a diamond for a beak, and a comma like shape for the wattle. For the feathers I cute bigger longer diamond shapes with rounded sides for the feathers. I used five feathers for each ring. 

I used hot glue to put the turkey together.  You can leave the feathers plain, or draw around the outside with black marker like this one. 


The width of the paper towel is the perfect size for a rolled up napkin.  

In today's Countdown to the Thanksgiving, I have a BONUS CRAFT 

We had a Thanksgiving tradition in our house. When the kids were younger we make Thankful Turkeys.  I would cut out a turkey shape and feathers.  They entire family would write on the feathers what they were thankful for that year, and then I would display them around the house.  I still have many of those turkeys in our memory boxes.  

If you would love to do this tradition but do not want to have to cut out the turkeys, I have a premade kit in my Etsy Shop.  

In addition to the Thankful Turkey Craft Kit , you may  also be interested in the  printable Thanksgiving Games that I have in my shop that the entire family can play.

Money Earning and Savings Tips of the Day 

My favorite way to earn extra money for the holiday season is by selling my printables on Etsy.  If  you have been trying a side hustle like selling your own printables,  I love the course I took by Gold City Ventures.  You get so much out of this course including free templates, a wonderful Facebook group (which I am still a part of) and so much more.  Their course is open through midnight tonight. If you would to like more without committing to the course, they have two FREE resources.  The first is a Free Ebook about seasonable printables, and the other is a Free Workshop. If you have questions about this course, or making printables, drop me a message.  

Today's Saving Money Tip is in another area that I love... Making Crafts.  

I received an email from  They have several FREE holiday workshops and courses going on in the next few weeks both online and in person.   They are currently in the middle of the 12 Days of Making Holiday Cards (Nov 1-12), but will also have the 12 Days of  Kid Club Winter Workshops (kid's crafts for age 6+)  Online they have two classes coming up.  How to make a luxe Christmas tree, (11/8 at 3 pm CT) and a wood burning class (11/15)  If you are interested in any of their free and paid classes check their website.    One of my favorite gifts I received from my daughter was a beautiful painting she made me in a Michael painting class.
