What better way to celebrate the month of November then by giving thanks. Honoring our Pilgrim and Indian ancestors through love, gratitude and peace. Thanksgiving season is more then food on the table its about being grateful for what we have and how far we have come.

Gratitude Party Head Dress

Here is a great project to do with the kids while telling the stories of how Thanksgiving came about. Gratitude Party Head Dresses are the perfect accessory for your holiday tablescape or classroom. Each one can be customized with happy quotes and individual names. Best part they are easy to make, fun to wear and different from a crown or party hat. Let’s grab some Beacon Adhesives 3 in 1, paper and scroll down to get started……

Materials

Step One

Draw or print 4 different sizes of feather shapes onto colored card stock. Line 4 more sheets of colored card stock under the feather template sheet and cut out. This will save you time in cutting feathers.

Step Two

Fold each set of feathers in half and cut slits into all the edges to create a fringe. Then separate the paper feathers and fluff out the slits.

Step Three

Cut two strips from DCWV scrapbook paper of choice ( the ones we used are from the paper packs listed in the material list). Each strip should measure 2 inches wide by 12 inches long. Glue the end of the two strips together to make a long strip.

Step Four

Begin gluing the various cut paper feathers to the plain side of long strip of paper using 3 in 1 glue. Then cover the glued feathers and paper strip with more 3 in 1 glue and plain card stock to finish it off.

Step Five

Glue the last two ends of the paper strips together to form the head dress. (Measure your head or your childs head before gluing the ends closed.)

Step Six

Cut random sayings from the DCWV papers. I used “So Happy” from the Minty Lace pack and “Let’s Go On An Adventure” from the Coastal pack. Glue them in place with more 3 in 1 glue.

Step Seven

Add to brass flat gems to the head dress using Gem Tac. At this point add any glitter, sequins or extra embellishments. Then your head dress is complete.

These paper head dresses are so fun to make. They are the perfect way to ring in the Thanksgiving season. Each happy head dress can have a different message of gratitude or the name of your Thanksgiving guests.

Play with colors and have some fun. The perfect project to do with the kids or friends. Stay tuned for more inspiring projects of gratitude and thanks the whole month of November.

Be Creative and Be a Beacon!
