Thanksgiving Craft Night

It’s become part of our tradition during Thanksgiving week to do some kind of family craft. One year we did crayon/canvas art, another we did chalk drawings on dark cardstock and this year we painted and mod podged glass ornaments.

Here’s what we came up with:

Tony made the Grinch. He even gave him a heart that grew three times!

The next two are Zoe’s. On the bottom ornament she wrote some of the lyrics to “Baby It’s Cold Outside”. I’m pretty sure it was from the Rod Stewart/Dolly Parton version. Haha!

This one is Jaron’s. He made a fish on a hook and wrote “Don’t Tap the Glass” on the outside. I love his sense of humor and it was a pretty clever idea!

Aunt TT kept it simple with some snowflakes. I love the simplicity of it.

Landon was the only one to honor the holiday we’re here for, Thanksgiving. I love that he didn’t forget about this special holiday…and that is a super cute turkey, don’t you think?

So far, Meme has made the most ornaments. She’s done three and she’s used three different techniques to do them. They’re all beautiful and unique.

Here’s what Kyle came up with. I love how his glass looks crackled.

And finally, here are the two I came up with.

We thought this was a bit much for the two little’s so they didn’t get to do any, and dad wasn’t into the idea so he didn’t participate either. It’s a pretty simple project though and it’s nice that we’ll be able to use them year after year.
