Each year for Thanksgiving my Niece, Nephew and I make gifts for everyone. They are ALWAYS Turkey themed and usually quick and easy to make. This year we decided to make this cute Thanksgiving Turkey votives for everyone to brighten and lighten up the table. You can put one of these together in less than one hour!
