1. Make an ice cream cone cornucopia.
A cone-icopia, if you will. They’re incredibly easy and (bonus!) totally edible.
2. Create simple table settings your guests can personalize.
You can take a break from stuffing your faces by going around the table and saying what everyone is thankful for.
4. So do books.
And you don’t even need to destroy any to do this easy DIY. You can also buy them here.
5. Celebrating Thanksgivukkah?
Fill your cornucopia with gelt, scatter dreidels around the table, and if you can somehow get your hands on a squirrel menorah, definitely do that thing.
6. Pilgrim-yarmulkes are super easy to make yourself.
Just paint a buckle gold and hot-glue it to a microsuede yarmulke.
7. Write out the menu on chalkboard-painted chargers.
8. Make Thanksgiving fortune cookies.
Write one thing you’re thankful for inside each one.
9. Fall foliage makes for simple place cards.
Enlist someone with great handwriting to help.
11. Or little gilded pumpkins.
Martha Stewart’s gilding liquid legitimately makes anyone look like a world-champion DIYer.
12. Go ahead and gild all the fruit.
Maybe leave some for eating purposes.
13. Pinecone fire-starters make cute and useful place cards.
14. Make apple candles.
15. Use gourds to serve small appetizers.
16. Walnut halves make great individual spice holders.
19. Paint a burlap runner.
This would make an awesome craft for kids, too.

Another rad craft to keep kids busy while the grown-ups are cooking/drinking/yelling at sports.
26. Make sure guests know where you live with a house-marker pumpkin.
