These cute little gobblers dress up your napkins and actually have lollipop treats hidden inside, so they double as sweet favors for your holiday guests. They are so easy to make, and kids will love to help out by tracing their hands to make the birds' fanned feathers. Head over to The Brass Paperclip Project for the full instructions and click through our slideshow below of other napkin folding ideas for your Thanksgiving table.

    A classic fold that will take you back to your cruise ship vacation of '09. Follow this YouTube tutorial for the how-to.
  • The Three-Pocket
    Between Naps On The Porch
    This idea also gives you a place to put all those forks and flowers. Visit Between Naps On The Porch for the tutorial.
  • The Rosette
    The Stone Gable
    Much easier than you'd think. Really, it's just an (artfully) rolled-up napkin. No ironing needed. Visit The Stone Gable for the full details.
  • The Kimono
    100 Layer Cake
    You won't even have to worry about setting a proper table with this one. 100 Layer Cake has the step-by-step.
  • The Collared Shirt
    How About Orange
    It was originally made for Father's Day, but hey, why not. How About Orange will show you how.

    So easy, we probably don't need to tell you how to do this. But we will: Just fold the napkin into a triangle, then roll. Stick the rolled napkin into a glass. Done. If you need pics, check out The Napkin Folding Guide (which indeed exists).
