Our Turkey Tablescape

Today I'm joining a lot of other bloggers and JoAnn Fabrics and Craft Store to show you my Thanksgiving table.  The topic I was given to create was #turkeytablescapes and this is what I came up with.  You see, I'm not a fan of cartoon turkeys so I decided to take a more elegant approach to the subject.  I focused on the turkey feathers instead.

I purchased fabric to create this feather table runner.

I hand-stamped feathers cascading down it in varying neutral tones.

 The stamps were carved by me and then I used fabric paint to apply them to the runner.  I like to use a foam brush to spread the paint onto the stamp first.

I wanted them to look like how a feather falls.

Then I got crazy with metallics.

I mixed them up as I stamped the fabric.

That made for some pretty, unique feathers.

Then I carried the feather theme a little further by adding name cards.

 I used baker's twine and feather to decorate the simple cards.

For the very center of the table I took our pumpkins and spray painted them white.  Then I added a light spray of glitter over the top of them.

It was just enough to make them shimmer a little.

And now we're ready for turkey.

You can use the hashtag #turkeytablescapes to see what other bloggers created.  You can also find more holiday ideas HERE.  And here's a coupon for you to use the next time you head to your JoAnn store.  Thanks for stopping by.

This post is part of a design challenge from JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores.  I was given a gift card to the store to purchase items to create this tablescape, but no other compensation.
