Our Thanksgiving Center Pieces: Knock-off Pottery Barn Mayflower baskets!



We did this today for my preschool group. The kids loved this. We spray painted cheap baskets brown and filled them with Oasis. We then glued on fake leaves and added little fake squash and pumpkins. The mayflowers were made by one wodden dowel from Michaels cut in thirds and rectangles cut out of cardstock with slits cut in them that we wove the dowels through!
Super Cute for your table and a great history lesson for your kids Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Quick question....how do you get the music on your blog? I have been trying to figure that out.
