Thanksgiving Centerpiece/Glittering Gourds
Here is an easy craft for you that you still have lots of time to create, this Thanksgiving Centerpiece/Glittering Gourds. I had been given by my friend Nan a glittering kit by Martha Stewart a couple of years back. I would unpack it at this time of year but with working, hosting Thanksgiving and getting ramped up for our big Halloween party sadly my glittering kit would get put back into my boxes and stored away for another year. When I pulled it out this year I said I am going to use this and glitter some gourds. It is an easy quick craft that your children can help you with. Amber did half of these.
You don’t need the fancy kit to do glittering, you can purchase the glue and glitter at any craft store. It is a thick pasty glue that comes with a brush that you simply brush on thinly and sprinkle the glitter on and shake to remove the excess. Do the gourd in sections letting it dry between applications so it is easily handled. All the rest I had around the house. The candles, leaves, pears and tray are all just pulled together. Get creative and come up with one of your own for your Thanksgiving table.
