  1. Paint the wood ball or apple shape and clay pot. Let dry. Be sure it is the correct size for the size of pot you have.

  2. Turn the pot upside down and glue the head on.

  3. Glue the eyes on the head.

  4. Glue the leaves on the back of the pot to make a fan-like tail.

  5. Glue the kernel of corn on the head for the beak.

  6. Glue the felt or yarn by the beak.

  7. Glue a ribbon on the top front of pot for his bow tie. If you make a lady you can add a hat or lace in front with tiny buttons, too.

Note: Be sure to help the children with the hot glue gun.

A thankful candle centerpiece for ThanksgivingI wanted my guests to be thankful for something this year. I wrote down several things to be thankful for and cut them out and attached them to my candle centerpiece. I also wrote Bible verses down associated with thanks and placed them around the table.

And God Bless you for doing this because so many forget to count blessing from God anymore! Even though this might seem like such a small touch I'll venture to bet it made all at your Thanksgiving table to think about just how much they have to be thankful for! Thumbs Up!
