My husband and I were at Walmart and I spotted this wooden item back in the floral department by the vases, etc. I thought it looked an awfully lot like a boat. And then I started thinking some more...
I went ahead and bought it, plus a few dowel rods, and some spanish moss to place inside. My husband thought he could put it all together with a few sails made from posterboard. My husband Dave is a great man! He always humors me in my holiday ideas:)
Then we added a few pinecones and voila! A Pottery Barn knock-off for a mere ten bucks and change!
We put this on the kids' table last year and it will make an appearance there this year as well. (Also, your older kids could even help in making this craft with you.) I have a PB kids Thanksgiving tablecloth that I purchased several years ago also that completes their holiday table. They all seem to enjoy having a "special" table, too:)
A little ingenuity can go a long ways! Happy Thanksgiving!
