Let’s be real, it wouldn’t be a holiday around here without a macaron craft, so obviously these DIY Thanksgiving turkey macarons were a no-brainer! They’d also be pretty perfect for keeping the little ones entertained while the adults handle the real thing, but I’m totally not trying to get your kids sugared up before dinner or anything.
See the full tutorial for these little guys over on the Minted blog, right here! Do you all have any clever traditions or tactics for keeping the littles entertained on Thanksgiving?
In case you’re looking for the perfect gift for your bestie, we’re happy to help support the cause with a Brooklyn Thread giveaway! Or you can just keep the goodies for yourself as a reward for surviving some of the holiday madness and I’ll pinky swear not to judge you. If only you could’ve seen my luggage trying to bring back all of my LA goodies from the weekend, you’d really know I mean that.
One lucky Sugar & Cloth reader will win a rose quartz stone candle holder, a rose quartz wine stopper, and a pink agate stone trivet. You know what that means right? You’ll have the raddest bar cart around just in time for all of the parties, or the perfect place to stash your new trinkets and lotions on your console like I did.
I’m finally back from the West Coast, and while I catch up on the thousand emails and to-do lists that have piled up, I’m sharing this wishbone donut recipe over on Studio DIY while she’s honeymooning! They’re perfectly fitting for the donut Queen if I do say so myself.
In other news, I have a cool giveaway for you tomorrow plus a DIY or two up my sleeve for the rest of the week, so stick with me here while I overcome my macaron hangover from California…

I have a little confession to make, I’m kind of a fan girl over Alana Jones Mann. It’s a love affair I’ve been meaning to tell you about since I met her at a blog conference last year and she handed me a business card that was a slice of cake made out of a makeup sponge. I practically asked her if we could be best friends right on the spot.
Somehow I convinced her almost a year later to help me create a Thanksgiving tabletop idea I’ve been dreaming up (since she is the queen of cupcake toppers, after all), and the end result is kind of blowing my mind! To bring a little extra handmade action to the table, I created DIY gold leaf napkin rings to go along with Alana’s edible DIY Thanksgiving dinner cake toppers…
