The turkey is cooking, the stuffing is stirring, the pumpkin pies are baking, and you don’t have time to decorate the Thanksgiving table. Hey, that’s okay. Those store-bought decorations aren’t exactly your style anyway. Instead of dressing the holiday table with the same old, same old, help the kids get crafty and DIY your way to a completely creative display. Whether you’re going traditional or glamming things up for the day, we’ve got the crafts that will add artsy awesomeness to your Thanksgiving décor.
