Thanksgiving Craft Stick Wreath

Our Craft Stick Wreath Craft Kit can be easily turned into a Fall and Thanksgiving themed activity! This simple wreath is made with regular and jumbo craft sticks that are colored with markers and water to give a blended look. Then simply glue the craft sticks to the included wreath shape. Everything you need to make the wreath is included in the kit.

If you want to get even more creative like we did, add a festive message using jute string, oak tag, and the markers which are included in the kit. We also thought it would be fun to have some of our wood leaves hanging in the center.

Pie Garland 

Who doesn’t love eating pie for Thanksgiving? Make a festive pie garland to hang up as a decoration for your Thanksgiving events. These Kraft Paper Pennants work great because they are made from heavy paper, the perfect pie shape, pre-punched holes, and the color makes it easier to decorate.

Fold a strip of white or tan paper accordian style to create the crust at the top. Glue the sides to the back of the kraft paper so you don’t block the holes. Then string jute through the kraft paper holes. You can choose which types of pies you’d like to create. Here’s how we made the 4 you see here: Continue reading

Make A Gingerbread Man With Fuse Beads


Fuse Beads are one of my favorite craft activities, especially around the holiday! It is also a great craft for children. I created a cute Gingerbread Man to use as decoration for my home. There are only a few materials and it is a quick and easy craft activity.

Download a printable version of this activity here so you can easily follow the steps and the design!


To create the gingerbread man, I used the bear shaped pegboard. Start by sorting out what colors you would like to use. Put each color bead in a paint cup or small container. This makes it easier to place the beads on the pegboard. I chose brown for the body, white for the face, arms, and legs, and yellow for the buttons.
