It’s turkey day and the bird is front and center! The centerpiece of Thanksgiving dinner is what everyone looks forward to, and thankfully—with these artistic odes to poultry—the holiday can actually be celebrated year round, if you’re all about that bird.
Plush turkeys, purse turkeys even pet turkeys all come together in this roundup of turkey items that we all should be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving!
Turkey Purse by Rebel Skein
How much stuffing can you stuff in a turkey? Now you can find out for real with this hand-crocheted turkey purse. I would love to roll up to dinner with one of these on my hip, I’d definitely stuff it with leftover pumpkin pie to take home for later.
Rice Krispie Turkey Drumsticks by This Grandma is Fun
The name of this blog doesn’t lie, these three grandmas truly are fun! They come up lots of creative crafts and holiday ideas and these rice krispie drumsticks are a great way to serve up a sweet themed holiday snack. Made of Cocoa Krispies with pretzel rods and mini marshmallows serving as the bone, these would look great at a table setting for a post Thanksgiving dinner treat.
Felt Thanksgiving Dinner by Teela Sprinkles
In my opinion Thanksgiving dinner is the best meal of the year, and while you probably shouldn’t eat it every day at least you can look at all your favorite foods on the regular with this fun felt Thanksgiving dinner set. I mean, who wouldn’t want a handful of mashed potatoes by their side at all times?
Turkey Necklace by Foxy Funk
When you decorate for the holidays, don’t forget your outfit. This holiday dinner necklace is made of laser cut acrylic and cherry wood and “features the imagery of a fresh out of the oven roasted turkey with dressings on a silver platter.” Sometimes you just have to put a bird on it. A cooked one.
Cat Turkey Sweater by Simply Sphynx
Cats dressed as turkeys is the next big thing. Even if it isn’t, you can make it be the next big thing with this cute Thanksgiving turkey outfit. Dress up your fuzziest butterball for the day (if they’re willing) and take a festive holiday photo. Oh and tweet it at us. We love cats, and turkeys, and cat-turkeys.
