Have a handmade Thanksgiving

Etsy turkeys
Here's a visual guide to some of our favorite Thanksgiving decorations made by clever crafters. 

Anyone who’s ever had to host a Thanksgiving feast for 20 rambunctious relatives knows the true challenge presented by the holiday: looking as calm, collected, and put-together as possible.

Etsy is here to help. Even if you don’t have time to quilt a patchwork table runner or sculpt elaborate placeholders for your Thanksgiving table, that doesn’t mean you can’t still have them. And as to their origin, nobody needs to know.

Take a moment from your turkey coma to plan ahead and make next year’s holiday a handmade one, even if you’re busy. Here are some of Etsy’s fanciest, most festive table placings.

This pregnant turkey prank is what Thanksgiving is all about
If there’s one holiday that’s about tradition, it’s Thanksgiving. From who carves the turkey to who gets to break the wishbone, Thanksgiving is a day that operates on rituals and customs.

In one kitchen, however, the tradition was less about thanks and more about pranks.
