How To: Thanksgiving Craft Ideas + Recipes for Side Dishes

By: Caitlin Eaton, Editor for AllFreeKnitting

Aside from my family being together in one place, one of the things that made Thanksgiving meals at my grandmother's house so memorable was all the time and care she put into baking and crafting for the event. I can still remember the smells of her homemade stuffing and biscuits, which she arranged artfully atop the leaf-and-turkey-themed tablecloth. In the hopes of following in my grandmother's footsteps one day, I've compiled this list of some of my favorite Thanksgiving craft ideas to help plan out my celebration. As a special treat, our friends at AllFreeCopyCatRecipes have also submitted five of their favorite recipes for side dishes. By using this list as your guide, you'll be able to bake and craft your way to a fun and special Thanksgiving in no time.
