These #falltastic Thanksgiving crafts for adults are sure to give your holiday table a refined edge.
Crafting with little ones is such an incredible experience — I’m only astounded by their creativity and excitement. However, that doesn’t mean you can only craft with your kiddos. Some crafts are too dangerous or complicated to share with your little ones, depending on their ages and how protective you are.
The crafts below are geared towards adults that want to make “serious” decorations for their Thanksgiving celebration. Some of them are easy enough to share with your rug rats, and some of them are best kept adults only.
