Are you inviting family and friends outside of your home over for Thanksgiving dinner? You can call them, send an email, or invite them when you see them in person. Or you can get creative and make Thanksgiving dinner invitations to mail or hand out. This is a very easy craft to do, and you are free to be as creative as you would like.
If you are looking for a fun and creative way to invite your family and friends over for Thanksgiving dinner, then here are the materials, directions, and suggestions for creating Thanksgiving dinner invitations.
Leaves (real or craft leaves).
Crayons or colored pencils.
Glue (tape may be used as an alternative).
1. Fold a piece of construction paper in half. This can be from side to side or from top to bottom. It depends on what you would like your invitation to look like.
2. Decorate the front how you would like. You can write a message on the front such as “You’re Invited”, “Happy Thanksgiving”, or “You’re Invited To A Thanksgiving Dinner”. You can draw a nice Thanksgiving pattern or place stickers on the front, including leaves, turkeys, pumpkins, and fruit. You can also trace real leaves or glue craft leaves to the front. Do not overdo the glue and allow it some time to dry.
3. On one of the inside pages, you should write down all of the information necessary for inviting someone to a Thanksgiving dinner. This includes:
– Date (just incase somewhere is unaware of what dates Thanksgiving falls on, or if you are having the dinner on another date for any reason).
– The time.
– The address of the dinner.
– A phone number and/or email address to contact you.
– The date people should RSVP by.
– Any additional notes.
Make sure you print the information rather than writing in cursive, so that invitation will be easy to read.
4. You can decorate the other inside page the same way you decorate the front page, with drawing, stickers, or leaves. You should be sure not to overdo any glue used, especially if you have used glue on the front page (too much glue may make the card too damp and hard to decorate, close, and re-open). Keep the card open as you allow the glue to completely dry.
You can even add a message such as “Thank You” or “Hope To See You At Dinner”.
5. Whether or not you decorate the back is up to you. You can leave it simple if you would like, since it is the back on the invitation.
Creating Thanksgiving dinner invitations is easy to do and people will enjoy getting one. It is probably better to mail them out, just incase you can only invite a small group or if you are unsure when you will see someone before Thanksgiving. If need be, send them an email or phone call to be sure they have received the invitation or to get their address so that you can send them one. You can make all of the invitations identical or create a different one for each invite, as long as the dinner information is still the same. You should be sure to plan and send them in advance to give everyone notice and the mail time to deliver them.
Enjoy creating Thanksgiving dinner invitations for your loved ones and enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner together! Happy Thanksgiving!
