Happy Halloween everyone! How cute are these Woodland Folk Toys for Thanksgiving? Since you’ve probably wrapped up your Halloween decorating spree and the costumes are done, I thought I would share a fun little toy I originally posted on eighteen 25. Wouldn’t they look adorable at the kids’ table for Thanksgiving? You’ve got to love anything that can help decorate a table while entertaining the kids! Hope you enjoy!
Woodland Folk Toys
- wood peg people
- wool felt
- wood sticks
- acorn caps
- toilet paper rolls
- recycled cardboard
- strong double-sided tape
- glue gun
1. Gather natural supplies. We used twigs, pinecones, and acorn caps to embellish folk toys but you could use pretty much anything (bark, pebbles, dirt, grass, etc).
2. Cut a circle out of a piece of recycled cardboard and slit up the middle. Fold over on itself to make a cone shape and staple in place. Trim natural materials to fit on roofs.
3. Apply a layer of double-sided tape and adhere either the pine cone scales or twigs to the cone roofs
4. Cut a strip of wool felt and depending on the age of your child, have him sew a straight line across the top. Pull thread to gather, wrap around neck of peg, and sew in place. I love how proud my son is in the second picture!
