These cute free Thanksgiving printables are the perfect way to quickly and easily dress up Thanksgiving cupcakes. If you’re cooking Thanksgiving dinner, you know you’re going to be busy. These ready-to-make toppers can save time on Thanksgiving day, because they can be made way in advance. So all you have to do is just pop them into cupcakes at the last minute. If you’re really smart, you’ll get one of your guests to bring the cupcakes, to make it even easier on you!
The toppers feature whimsical pilgrims bearing Thanksgiving dinner items, and a turkey wearing a pilgrim hat, collar and shoes (obviously he doesn’t know what’s coming, so he’s dressed in solidarity with his future cook). They both sit on plaid backgrounds with a lacy and homey looking border.
To make these, you can use a Cricut or other cutting machine, or a simple 2″ hand punch. I use a Marvy Uchida 2-inch circle cutter for all my projects and find it works quite nicely. You can also cut them by hand, but just be aware that it will take a while.
If the template posted above doesn’t download right away when you click on it, you can save it to your hard drive by right-clicking your mouse (if you’re a PC user) or control-clicking (if you’re a Mac user).
