One of two completed... Thanksgiving Crafts

I finished up the little pilgrim hats that I said I was going to do for this year. These were inspired by this post at Jellybean Junkyard.

Here's the inspiration shot:

And here's how mine turned out:

These were cheap, easy, and not time consuming! 
Here are the supplies for my version (I bought everything from Michaels):
  • One small clay pot for each person
  • One 8.5x11 sheet of yellow felt (I used the stiff type and less than half the sheet for all 7)
  • One 8.5x11 sheet of gray felt cut into strips across the short side
  • Black cardstock or paper
  • White pen (mine was a paint pen that I already had)
  • Paintbrush
  • Hotglue gun and glue
  • Scissors 

As you can (kind of) see with Kate's place card, I made them so that the names could be removed for different guests in the future. I went ahead and wrote out some other family members' names on cardstock so that I can keep them all together in a Ziploc.

You can follow Jellybean Junkyard's tutorial for most of it, or you can wing it like I did. It's that simple. One thing I do recommend is keeping a little part of the price tag sticker to put on top of the hole at the bottom of the pot. Then paint over it when you paint the rest of the pot. Good luck and have fun!

Now onto the more elaborate one that I may or may not get to this year since the paper mache part takes a few days.... the cornucopia.
