Thought I would compile a selection of felt food tutorials of a Thanksgiving-type nature. I was sure that I would find a ton, and I did. If you find the whole “first thanksgiving” thing as questionable as I do, just select items that fit with your beliefs.
You could make a cornucopia center-piece and than add the pieces to your kidlets’ felt food bin after dinner. This isn’t felt, but I think felt might not have the structure you would want, anyway. It is from Crafty Staci
Here are some good foods to put inside:
I’ve always loved this ear of corn pattern. I think it would be neat to use several felt colors in the weaving and make “Indian Corn.” (Is there a PC name for this type of corn other than dried multi-colored corn?)
There is a great, free tutorial here at Cook, Clean, Craft.
A summer squash, of course…
Here is a nice tutorial from Cut Out and Keep
Here is another tutorial from Shelley Inspired that is a free download that has another summer squash, carrots, cucumber, eggplant, potato and a few others. She calls it her Farmer’s Market Set.
Maggie at Smashed Peas and Carrots has put together roasted turkey with removable drumsticks.
Some green beans from Craftiness is not Optional.
Back to Smashed Peas and Carrots for pumpkin pie. She shows how to make a dollop of whipped cream on the top, which I think totally makes the whole thing.
This is already way longer than I intended, but you may also want to consider adding fruits to your cornucopia or adding mashed potatoes, dinner rolls or cranberry relish to the menu.
What are some of your Thanksgiving food traditions.
