Here are some Thanksgiving Goodies to DIY:
I saw this cute idea on Party Blog
but it originated from
Better Homes and Gardens.
It was just tooo cute not to share with you too!

What You Need: 
3-inch terra-cotta flowerpot
Crafting foam in black, yellow, green, and purple
Acrylic paints in black, white, red, green, and blue
Thick white crafts glue
Black fabric paint pen


1. Paint the entire pot black and allow it to dry. Choose a color to paint the band around the top of the pot. Let it dry. Make white dots on the rest of the pot by dipping the handle of a paintbrush in white paint and dotting onto the surface.

2. Cut a circle from black foam. Cut it about 1/2 inch wider all around than the pot opening. Use an appropriate size dish, cup, or lid to trace. Place a small amount of glue on the rim of the pot and glue onto the black foam circle.

3. To make the buckle, measure the width of the band of the pot (the portion painted a different color). Cut a rectangle out of foam that measures about 1/8 inch deeper than the band on the pot. Glue it to the band. Let the glue dry.

4. Use a black paint pen to write the guest's name on the colored band. Allow it to dry before using.

I can almost smell the turkey cooking!
