Turkey Decal Dessert Plates

A plain white plate is turned into a festive Thanksgiving plate by adding an image of a turkey in the center.

Materials: dessert plates, water slide decal paper, and an ink jet or laser jet printer

Instructions: Find an image online, we chose a turkey for Thanksgiving. Print that image out on decal paper—make sure to use paper specified to the type of printer you have. Once image is dry, cut it out with minimal borders. Place the graphic face down on a plate, soak in water, and then peel off backing. Position and wait until dried. Cure in oven on lowest temperature for one to two hours.

Festive Cloche Centerpiece

Leaves, feathers, pine cones, and a gourd are covered by glass cloches to make this Thanksgiving table's centerpiece.

Materials: glass cloche, decorative items and trinkets (can be gathered from around the house), feathers, leaves, pumpkins, moss, florist foam, large tray

Instructions: Have fun with this! Assemble your pieces until you are happy with them. Build up pieces by layering on top of moss and florist foam. Arrange your cloches on a large tray and surround them with leaves and more moss. You can also put cloches on top of cake plates or boxes to create levels at your table.
