funny diy thanksgiving napkins

Funny DIY Thanksgiving napkins were a must when I made my Thanksgiving Friendsgiving party this year. I made these turkey napkins that look like the butcher pictures for cows! At a glance, they look like regular turkeys until you see the detail. It’s good for a giggle especially on a Thanksgiving table.

Funny DIY Thanksgiving Napkins

Funny DIY Thanksgiving Napkins

Make DIY funny Thanksgiving napkins with the help of a thanksgiving free SVG file, your Cricut machine and some iron-on vinyl. Make one, make twenty, just make them! They're the perfect little bit of levity for a big sit down dinner with friends and family.


  • Cricut Machine
  • Sticky Mat
  • Weeding Tool
  • EasyPress
  • EasyPress Mat


Open up Cricut Design Space. Import the free Turkey SVG into your library, then insert it onto your canvas. This image needs a little work, but it's pretty quick. Basically, select everything NOT the turkey shape and weld it together. Grab this mass weld and the turkey shape then slice. Delete the two images that are NOT the turkey outline and you'll be set!

Weld anything that needs welding, and then Put your Gold Cricut SportFlex iron-on shiny side down onto your sticky mat. (You may need to tape down the edges.) Click "Make."

Choose SportFlex iron-on vinyl as your material then click the blinking "C" on your machine.

After your image cuts, you’ll need to weed the vinyl, and you'll definitely need a Cricut tool for this one as there are lots of tiny pieces to it!

Heat up your EasyPress to 315°. Place your EasyPress mat on your work surface and lay your napkins corner on top of it. (I used the small 6 x 9 press to make these.)

Place your iron-on image vinyl side down onto your napkin corner. Press the image for 30 seconds, then let cool completely. After the image is cool, remove the clear plastic carrier paper. Then you are done!

Easy Thanksgiving Napkin Rings You Won’t Mind Throwing Away

I love napkin rings, but I don’t like ones that I have to keep around for a really long time. I run out of space pretty quick with all the props in my house!
So I made some easy peezy ones that I don’t mind pitching after use — it makes them perfect for the holidays. For those of you up north, you may be able to walk outside and find some acorn hats to use for this project. Me here in Florida, I had to find some on Etsy to buy!



  • high hat acorn tops
  • wooden beads or felted wool or pom-poms
  • hot glue burlap ribbon or whatever ribbon you choose

This is the easiest project ever. After you have your napkin completed, fold it so the corner turkey image is displayed at the bottom. I like to grab the middle of the napkin and fold the edges in underneath.

Tie a length of the burlap ribbon around the middle of the napkin. You don’t have to double knot it!

Glue a wooden bead into the acorn top. Glue the acorn top to the knot in the burlap ribbon. Add a little sprig of green for an extra special touch. Should take all of 90 seconds per napkin ring.

Eat, drink, and enjoy thanksgiving!

Use this easy DIY funny Thanksgiving napkin tutorial to spruce up your table for the holiday…especially if your family has a sense of humor!
