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.

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.
