We had a very nice
Thanksgiving, even though it was just the three of us.
I thought I'd show you some of the crafty things
we accomplished in between the cooking, cleaning, etc.
I made a wreath template out of sturdy cardboard, a
plate and a pot.
Then we used a glue gun to attach the pine cones.
I didn't have any great ribbon lying around
(and refused to do any last minute shopping for the 11th time) so
we recycled one from a gift from last year. Not the best
but it will do.
Our pine cone wreath:
Bad, bad lighting.
Next we had to do something
for my bird friends.
A little peanut butter and cornmeal tossed together and
a few, I threw in some frozen blueberries.
I placed the mixtures in a muffin tin,
let them semi freeze,
poked a hole in the middle using a straw
then ran some raffia through the hole for hanging.
Here's what they look like:
Unfortunately, these only work for those of us in the
We're too warm to hang them out right now
but they await the colder temps in the freezer.
Do you have a favorite craft of bird treat idea?
I'd love to hear and see them!
