When planning to make my three spooktacular Halloween ornament wreaths, I bought enough goodies to ensure some extras since constructing these decorative wreaths is easier when you have oodles of its and bits to choose from. I’ve always been a member of the clean plate club — waste not, want not, right? — so I found a way to use all the non-ghoulish ‘leftovers’ from Halloween to make this charming Thanksgiving wreath.
I used every last leftover ornament, gourd and leaf to get this wreath covered, just barely having enough to get this wreath covered. Pam has annointed me a princess in the kingdom of the high-heat glue gun!
The only addition not part of my original Halloween wreath goodies is this little turkey, which was in a box with my non Christmas holiday decor. I’ve had this little turkey for probably 15 years. Mom and I picked him up at a craft store, and he has been a humorous addition to the Thanksgiving table decor — at Mom’s house and then mine — ever since then. I think he likes his new home!
Let’s see, now we have Christmas wreaths — [ from vintage ornaments… from new ornaments… EZ-wreaths… and even corsage wreaths], Halloween wreaths, Thanksgiving wreaths — what’s next?
