Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, and delicious food. This is a simple DIY Thanksgiving Silverware Holder craft to add a special touch to your Thanksgiving table (depending on your style) or for the kids table. We travel for Thanksgiving to my mother in laws, but I’m definitely going to make a set for at home because the kids will love them. Plus my mom already requested some for her Thanksgiving table.

A turkey is a symbol of Thanksgiving, but you could add anything to your silverware sleeve.

  • pumpkins
  • pilgrims
  • sayings “grateful”, “thankful”, “blessed”, or “Gobble til you Wobble”
  • corn
  • football

Plus add any printed paper to your turkey. I love polka dots, so I used polka dots. I think for my moms silverware sleeves, I am going to use a small flower print because she loves flowers. Just make sure the printed paper has a small print.

Let’s Create a DIY Thanksgiving Silverware Holder


Brown Sack- I found these at Hobby Lobby
Card Stock
Cricut Cutting Machine
Double Sided Scrapbook Mounting Squares
Zig Zag Scrapbook Glue

Step 1:
Measure the brown sack about 3 inches from the top to cut.

Step 2:
Cut down the sides of the brown sack to the pencil mark. After cutting down the side, go back and trim it for a smooth edge. Then cut across the center off the bag at 3 inches. If you are going to have the kids decorate them for a fun Thanksgiving craft, I would have them precut and just have the kids decorate them.

Step 3:
On my Cricut Explore, I created the turkey. If you don’t have a Cricut use stickers or print and cut turkeys to add to the silverware sleeve. Then I attached the turkey using 3D Pop Dots. For the small pieces on the turkey, I use this glue pen. This is my favorite glue pen ever, it’s the best.
