With all the prep needed for Thanksgiving Day dinner, sometimes the little details get overlooked. Whether it’s forgetting to pick up the turkey shaped butter or finding the tablecloth that got pushed to the back of the closet and is a wrinkly mess…not that I would know anything about that…the last thing you need on Thanksgiving is to stress about a bunch of little details!
So these place cards are super simple to make, won’t add any more stress to your day (well, unless you spill the glitter…) and will add a touch of sparkle to your place setting.
Glue or Mod Podge
First I glittered my clothespin by brushing on a layer of Mod Podge, sprinkling on some gold glitter, and then adding another layer of Mod Podge. I only glittered the front of the clothespin since that will be the only side showing. It took about a half hour to dry completely. If you don’t have Mod Podge, white glue would work just as well!
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the card stock into a leaf shape, but you could easily print a template to use. Next I cut a piece of burlap slightly larger than my leaf.
Using the white sharpie, I added each person’s name to the side of each leaf. Then I clothes-pinned the leaf and burlap together…and that’s it!
These would be very simple to customize by matching the card stock color to your napkins or centerpieces. You could even do a variety of fall colors. Or even non-traditional colors to match your plates. Whatever you choose to do, these Thanksgiving place cards are easy to make!
