If your kids are anything like mine, they love love love foamies. Foam soccer balls, foam airplanes, foam hearts and stars and trees and even turkeys. Yes, turkeys.
Would you want that colorful little turkey gracing the table at Thanksgiving though?
While the kids were crafting their own versions, I started playing around with the forms and came up with a simple, easy to assemble, classy turkey place card holder.
Those little mini cards are the key ingredient for classing up these foamies. Made of a thick card stock, they are the perfect size to place behind the turkey feathers to serve as a backdrop and writing surface. To attach the two, you need to make a slit in the little card so the turkey body can notch into the form. There is already a notch cut in the turkey feathers, so simply line up the feather foam piece with the white card and cut out a notch.
Each end of the burlap strip received a little antique scrabble tile (find similar tiles HERE) for the guests’ initials. In my case, it was a B and B for Benjamin Button. 🙂
Did this bored mom come up with a classy solution for throwaway kid’s crafts?
