An Easy DIY Ombre Friendsgiving Holiday

The Holidays are here and they kick off with the awesome food-fest that is Thanksgiving. If you’re like me, you may host a Friendsgiving dinner party in addition to your family Thanksgiving dinner. It’s something I do for all my friends who may not have family in the area to spend Thanksgiving with. It’s always nice to give thanks for the friends you make that become your second family. A Friendsgiving is a perfect way to celebrate the holiday with friends and you can easily and quickly decorate for the occasion with a Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine! It makes decorating all the more fun and unique! Hi, everyone! I’m Vanessa Diaz of Brite & Bubbly and today I’m showing you how to make some quick and easy DIY Ombre Colored Friendsgiving Holiday Decorations!

To make these colorful and festive decorations, you can use the new Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine. I have three Cricut machines already and this one by far makes creating fun decorative pieces like these so much quicker.

What’s great about this machine is, you can select a box in the Cricut Design Space called “Fast Mode” for faster crafting. The machine then cuts and writes faster and saves me a lot of time. It cuts two times faster than my other machines and that’s extremely helpful when you’re getting ready for a Friendsgiving.

I decided to give my wall a little flair over our Friendsgiving dessert cart. Some fun turkey legs and the words “gobble, gobble, gobble” make a fun wall decoration to great our Friendsgiving guests.

You can find the gobble wording design in the Design Space here! Cut the image out with two different colored papers (like pink and purple) to keep with your colorful Friendsgiving tones.

I used a turkey leg design (which I found here on Design Space) and the print and cut feature to make the turkey leg wall decorations.

I created turkey place cards with this turkey design I found in the Design Space here.

I cut a bunch of these colorful turkeys out quickly as you can see above!

I also used this same turkey design to create an ombre turkey confetti table runner down the center of the table.

Pair your ombre turkey colored holiday décor with some pink and purple plates, cups and ombre place mats and flatware for the perfect Friendsgiving holiday decor.
