3 Colorful Crafts for Thanksgiving

It’s official—the holiday season is here!

Thanksgiving is just three weeks away, and here at GelWriter we’re getting all our fall colors ready to shine. While they don’t taste great with cranberry sauce, our gel pens do go perfectly with your holiday craft projects (and they won’t eat all your leftover pie).

Here are a few simple crafts that will make your home extra cozy this Thanksgiving:

Grateful Wreath

What are you thankful for? Bring the true spirit of the season into your home by inviting friends and family to share what they are grateful for this year. Use gel pens to write on paper or foam leaves (found at most craft stores) and attach them to a wreath for a welcoming Thanksgiving tradition. Here is another version we love!

Paper Pumpkins

These cute paper pumpkins are the perfect fall accent for the home or the Thanksgiving table, and they are so easy to make out of your finished (or not-quite-finished) coloring pages. Make them in different sizes for a beautiful centerpiece display, or use small ones as place settings that your dinner guests can take home. A great project for kids, too!

Thank You Tags

The holiday season is often a flurry of parties, dinners, and visits with friends and family. Bringing a gift for your hosts? A handmade gift tag adds a special and personal touch to a bottle of wine or a jar of your famous apple butter. GelWriters are perfect for this simple faux calligraphy technique—and they will write light or dark paper!
