We share the idea of making these pot holders
in children's or fun focus prints
then having the little ones
use as a placemat for hot foods!
before you turn right side out
be sure to clip corners
to help with bulk in keeping corners sharp!
This is a fun idea
for your Thanksgiving Dinner table favors.
Each is filled with the items listed below.
Wrap in celophane bags and tie with ribbons and bows,
place card on each with the Thanksgiving message attached.
If you would like to stop by and pick up a card with the message attached
so you can make your favors, we have a sample ready for you to pick up
and make copies for your guests.
A Mix of Blessings
BUGLES: Each is shaped as a Conucopia or Horn of Plenty to remind us of our ancestors and our heritage and that our lives are filled with blessings.
PRETZELS: They represent our arms folded in prayer to give thanks.
CANDY CORN: A lesson on Frugality. During the first winter the pilgrims were each allotted only 5 kernels of corn per day because the food was so scarce. The next year was a bounty as ours can be.
DRIED FRUIT: Thanksgiving is the celebration of the harvest from the field and trees. Preserve harvest for times of need and share.
NUTS & SEEDS: Seeds represent future hope and promise, the potential of a bounteous harvest for the next season if they are planted and well tended.
THE MIX: We are each given a unique combination of blessings. Give thanks and enjoy them!!
Do you like big family gatherings or do you prefer a small dinner followed by hot chocolate by the fire?
