Thanksgiving 2 sided Centerpieces and more treats mom called me this morning and said that she went to several places to try to find some festive Thanksgiving decorations for the tables and couldn't find anything. Of course not...November is when we buy Valentines on clearance!!! Anywhoo...I said I could make some simple paper crafts for centerpieces for the tables.

These were all cut from Create a Critter 2 at 5". I covered a soup can with print paper in fall colors and shoved a piece of floral foam in it. Topped it with some natural moss and tied it with scraps of net in fall colors.

I flipped the cuts so that the centerpiece looks nice from either side. Now for the favors (that I am adding to the turkey poop bags) I cut the cornucopia from Create a Critter 2 and put Bugles, Candy Corn, Candy Pumpkins and Skittles (that I carefully removed the red and green). The sentiment is from My Creative Time Thank You Hugs stamp set that I got free with purchase of her recent November release.

Happy Thanksgiving my friends. Last of the Fall colors for this year.
