Dress up the kids table at Thanksgiving (or even the grown ups table) with this cute and fun Turkey Utensil Pocket craft. They really add some fun color to your holiday table. This is a great Thanksgiving craft to spread out and do with the kids. You can help your kids with the simple sewing and let them do the rest in an assembly line fashion. Label the DIY Thanksgiving cutlery holders with names and they can instead of place cards. Learning to set the table with pride is a great experience for kids.

How To Make a Turkey Utensils Pocket:

Sew ⅛” from the edge of bag all the way around, trim off excess threads.
Cut ¼” slices off cork for heads.
Assemble turkeys-securing to bag with hot or craft glue if the kids are doing it. Spread feathers out across pocket, top with cork slices, googly eyes, and finally a beak and waddle cut from craft foam. Each one can be a unique work of art.
