Welcome to Happiness is Homemade! Before we get to this week’s features, let’s check out what’s been going on here on the blog over the past few days. will be choosing the features for the month of October, so load me up with some great ones (as you always do)!

This week we decorated our entryway for Christmas on Decorate with Us. I absolutely love the way it turned out and the new bench that I used in the space. Be sure to check out the full post as well as the video on Facebook! I also decorated our kids’ bathroom on FB, & I will be adding the post for that today, hopefully. The video is available on FB now.

Now on to the Party!

Welcome to the party. It’s Bev from Eclectic Red Barn as your hostess for November. I am still focusing on Thanksgiving so I thought I would share some Thanksgiving turkey ideas that you can make or even have the kids make. They would look so cute on your table. I hope you find some inspiration.

Missed the party last week? Check it out here!

This Week’s Features:

How cute are these Accordion Fold Paper Turkeys. You can get the kids involved in helping making these. Stop by Sam’s website for complete instructions and download the pattern.


If accordion turkeys are not on your list, you might want to try these DIY Toilet Paper Roll Turkeys and of course you do need toilet paper rolls to make these. Everyone has those, right! Once again, get the kids involved. 



Now if you are looking for a cute and tasty turkey for your table, then these chocolate, pretzel, candy corn – Thanksgiving Turkey Pretzel Rods. The kids would love these and you can even eat them.



This idea is so precious – DIY Thankful Bucket List for Thanksgiving I love this one. How great to write what you are thankful for and share at the table. 


How can you go wrong with these Thanksgiving Handprint Poem Turkeys. I know the kids will love making these and also something to remember Thanksgiving by. What a lovely memory to keep!
