Crafting the Mayflower

I found a great Thanksgiving craft on a blog that I follow called katydid and kid It's these charming little Mayflower boats made from a paper grocery bag. Here's our version of her paper Mayflower boats.

When I saw this craft, I instantly fell in love. I knew right away I was going to have my kids make them for our Thanksgiving decorations.

These boats were easy to make and so adorable!

Even if you don't have any youngsters at home, this would still be fun to make by yourself. I couldn't resist making one myself! I love paper projects because they are economical and usually made from recycled materials....there's just something so earthy and raw about it. I'll be putting these on display along with my other Thanksgiving decor. Just click here, katydid and kid.  to get to her blog for this wonderful craft tutorial.
