Turkey Up Your Thanksgiving Graphics

Turkey day! Turkey day! Once again, it’s time to gobble-gobble delicious goodies with your favorite people. Here at PicMonkey, we can’t think of a better way to commemorate the occasion than with delectable Thanksgiving graphics.

Remember tracing your hand to draw a turkey in kindergarten? Well, you’re a grownup now (or at least a precocious teen, or possibly a hyper-intelligent crow with ambitions of a career in graphic design), so it’s time to step up your game. Our meaty Thanksgiving graphics tutorial is here to help. Like Martha Stewart, we’ll show you how to make a turkey two ways—but unlike Martha Stewart, you’re gonna make this turkey out of simple geometric shapes.

Okay, ready to tuck in? Open our photo editor as you go and prove your Thanksgiving graphics prowess.

Once you’ve got your turkeys looking beautiful, what should you do with them? Well, dear readers, good Thanksgiving graphics have nearly as many uses as good Thanksgiving leftovers (though we don’t recommend eating them). Here’s a few:

  • Dinner invitations. Make your turkey graphics the centerpiece of Thanksgiving dinner invitations and become the envy of your friends! “Dahling, where did you get those cards?” “Oh, those old things? Made ‘em myself.”

  • Holiday cards. Wish family and friends a happy Thanksgiving with DIY turkey cards. Your grandma will be touched by your thoughtfulness, although you could stand to call a little more often. She would want us to point that out.

  • Social media. Add a simple seasonal message to your turkey, and boom! You’ve got yourself some viral potential.

Basically, we think you and your loved ones deserve to celebrate the season in style, so we’re giving you the turkey tools you need for success. The rest is up to you.

Stay tuned for more holiday tips and tutorials from PicMonkey! And if you come up with a cool use for your Thanksgiving graphics that we didn’t touch on here, drop us a line and let us know.
