Here is an easy Thanksgiving decoration idea. You can make graceful birds using acorn squash and yellow crookneck squash. If you have the time you can carve feather and tail designs for your acorn squash bird’s body. Or, you can just use the acorn squash without carving and you will still have a very pretty bird. These can be used as a lovely Thanksgiving decoration or as a Thanksgiving centerpiece for your dinner table.
It’s really pretty simple. Take a look at this quick video to see how.
To dress these up, can can display them on a nest of curly lettuce or mustard greens and surround them with tiny decorative pumpkins and other colorful squashes that are in season. Persimmons and pomegranates would also make colorful additions for the overall display.
