This Thanksgiving decoration idea came from my creative sister-in-law! It is fun, easy and so clever.. turn a pumpkin into a turkey! It's the cutest Thanksgiving decoration idea ever! Using a kit that has decorative pokes, she turned a pumpkin into a festive Thanksgiving turkey decoration. It would make a pretty Thanksgiving centerpiece or can be used to decorate your front steps or anywhere in your house.
Here is my Pumpkin Turkey welcoming visitors outside my porch door. He will come in and adorn our Thanksgiving table in a week or so! Best of all, order once and you can reuse every year! Just pull them out of the pumpkin after Thanksgiving, wash and pack away til next year! I've had mine for 3 years now. A note of caution, these pumpkin pokes are sharp so this is not a project for the children. It is easiest to put in the pokes if you make a pilot hole first. You can hammer in a thin nail just to get the hole started and then the pokes go in very easily.
You can tell we love traditions and this is a great one! Here is an easy Thanksgiving centerpiece idea! We recycled our fall decorations for this one. Took down the fall door wreath, put the pumpkin inside it and added our Pilgrim candlesticks! Could that be any easier??? We are all about re-cycling our seasonal decorations!
