If your repertoire of Thanksgiving craft ideas starts and stops with making a hand turkey, then it’s time to give your creativity a boost.  While there’s nothing wrong with tracing your hand on a paper plate, there are plenty of unique ways to put your stamp on the holiday, whether you’re a novice crafter or an experienced maker.
