Free Printable - Thanksgving Centerpiece


I have so many things to be grateful for.  I thank God every day for my amazing family and the fact that I can be a stay-at-home-mom making special memories with Brody and Skylar.  So with Thanksgiving just around the corner, I wanted to create a "thankful" centerpiece to display in the house.  Here is the simple tutorial so you can create one for your house!

Supplies Needed:
Free Printable "Give Thanks" Tags (Download HERE)
Paper Trimmer or Scissors
2-Inch Circle Scallop or Circle Craft Punch (I use this one)
6-Inch Lollipop Sticks
4-Inch Lollipop Sticks
Rectangular Vase or Planter (I use the same one from this project)
Floral Styrofoam
Candy Corn

First you will need to print the free printable that you can download HERE.


Next, print the file onto heavy white cardstock paper.  Cut into columns and use a 2-inch circle scallop or 2-inch circle craft punch to punch out each letter or image.





Once all the tags are punched out.  Glue the turkey tags and "G", "I", "V", and "E" tag onto 6-inch lollipop sticks.  Glue the "T", "H", "A", "N", "K", and "S" tags onto 4-inch lollipop sticks.


Set the tags on sticks aside.  Place the floral Styrofoam inside the planter.


Start placing the sticks into the Styrofoam and spacing properly as needed (you might need to play around for proper spacing).



When you are satisfied with the spacing of the letters, cover the Styrofoam with candy corn.


And now you have a cute Thanksgiving decoration!  Stay tuned for more free Thanksgiving printables and my tablescape for the kids' Thanksgiving table!
