Stitching cards for fall

These cards are not only a fun craft project but will teach the kids a new skill, and they’ll have something handmade to send to their favorite people this Thanksgiving.


  • Blank card
  • Embroidery thread
  • Needle (with a larger eye)
  • Pencil
  • Somthing to trace around – leaf, coloring page, stencil

Instructions for stitching cards

Using an item to trace around, sketch a fall item such as a pumpkin or fall leaf onto the card.

Mark small dots every 1/2 centimeter around the drawing.

Use the dots as a guide for where to make the stitches as you sew around the drawing. You can use an eraser to remove any extra pencil marks on the card.
