I love using paper quilling on placecards, and here is a fun example of that for Thanksgiving! This post even contains the instructions you need to make your own little turkey placecards!
The cornucopia – a traditional, yet somewhat lesser used, symbol of the harvest. Here it is made into a fun design that can be used on place settings for your holiday dinner or other decorative use. This is made by Debbie from Quinessential Quilling and can be found here on Etsy. You can follow her on facebook here.
Paper quilling acorns are so cute! I found many sources for these adorable acorns. It can be quite difficult sometimes to discover the original source, but the oldest one I could find was by Quilly Nilly in 2010. So as far as I can tell, these are the original paper quilled acorns! You can find Quilly Nilly at their facebook page here. These can make adorable ornaments, decoration for your centerpiece, for your place settings, and even jewelry!

I love this turkey ornament! It would be perfect hanging from a window, in the kitchen, or maybe just sitting in the centerpiece for your Thanksgiving dinner. This shows a great use for crimped paper! I feel inspired to get out my Crimper Tool and give it a try! This is made by Navanka creations and can be found here in their Etsy shop. You can find their facebook page here.
Continuing with the turkey theme, here is an awesome 3D turkey centerpiece for you! No time to make your own? Or this here on Etsy. It is made by Joan from Fashioned for You in NH.
You can’t have too many 3D turkeys! This one is great! Creative, eyecatching, and a little unconventional. Love it! I found it here on Etsy. It is made by Christa from Wintergreen Design. She makes a collection of awesome holiday and other themed 3D miniatures, so make sure to check out her etsy shop or her facebook page.
Sometimes the simplest ideas can be the most striking. Here is a fun one that anyone can make. This design is by Shannon Miller on Rebel Craft (it used to have a link, but it didn’t work anymore, so I took it off).
Here is a simple, yet elegant and striking, Thanksgiving or fall season themed card. These cute leaves could also be used on placecards for your Thanksgiving table. I found this here on Etsy. It is made by Jill from Paper Daisy Cards.
Tired of turkeys? This adorable squirrel and leaves will fit the bill! I found this here on Eli Quilling.
These delicate leaf ornaments are the perfect addition to your fall decorations! Hanging in a window or on a bare branch in a vase, these would be eye catching and gorgeous! These can be found here on Etsy. Made by Victoria from VB Pure Designs. Her facebook is here.
While this is not particularly for Thanksgiving, it is definitely autumn in theme. This would make an awesome gift to give to someone if you were going to their house for Thanksgiving dinner! This is made by Neli from Neli Quilling Art and can be found here on her blog with more photos.
Continuing the art theme, here is a fun modern pumpkin wall art that would again make a great gift! This is made by Diane from My Little Shop Online and can be found here in her Etsy shop.
