Coasters that Gobble
When I was growing up my family had decorations for every occasion and season. In the fall, Halloween decorations are quickly replaced with harvest decorations. To us, decorations are more than objects; they hold our memories and give us a chance to reminisce. Many of them are handmade by me or my sisters when we were young and give us a good laugh. In my home, I have tried to keep the traditions of my family going while giving it a twist of my own. As you gather around the table and give thanks, I wanted to give you an idea to personalize your table setting.
My son brings home tons of art projects from daycare. I never knew a child’s handprint could be made into so many things! One of the most popular creations of the season is the turkey handprint. One way to preserve this adorable masterpiece is to use it on your dinner table for all your guests to see. Just make it into a coaster! Luckily a child’s tiny handprint is the perfect size for this festive decoration.
There are so many options for how to color and decorate your handprint turkey. You can use washable ink to stamp the print or trace the hand with markers or crayons. Once you have your turkey how you want it, trace a circle or square around the image and trim with a scissors. Then you can take it into FedEx Office and have it laminated and trimmed. You can use the self-service machine and trim it on your own, or ask a team member for help. I used matte lamination for mine because it is not as slippery as the glossy and works better as a coaster. In the end, you have a functional coaster and a precious keepsake to spice up any table!
