How to Make a 'Give Thanks' Centerpiece for Thanksgiving
What You'll Need
- 16" to 18" sticks
- Acrylic paint
- Paper grocery bags
- White paper
- Colored pencils
- Tall drinking glasses
- Lentils or split peas
- Paint sticks different colors and let dry.
- Cut 5" circles from grocery bags and cut 3-1/2" circles from white paper. Mount white circles on top of brown ones with glue and let dry. Write letters on each of the white circles to write a Thanksgiving sentiment (we spelled out "Give Thanks").
- Glue each circle to a painted stick and anchor in a glass full of beans, lentils, or split peas. Display down the center of your dining table or along a buffet.
