Thanksgiving Decorations

Decorating for Thanksgiving is a longstanding tradition with many families. Pulled from boxes year after year, Thanksgiving decorations conjure up memories of making and using them-it’s what the holidays are all about. Well, that and the turkey. Having a theme is a good place to start: Thanksgiving decorations can be all about the harvest and giving thanks, and ours are no exception. So grab scissors, glue and markers and start making memories.
