My lovely in-law's are hosting our family's Thanksgiving dinner this year. The food is sure to be delicious and we'll be in the company of family we love and enjoy spending time with. I wanted to lend a hand in decorating our Thanksgiving table this year by making place cards. I came across several options while browsing Pinterest and added them to my Let's Talk Turkey board. For the Fall Pinterest Challenge, I decided on this pin:
The original came from Holly Mathis Interiors.
I made a stop at my local craft store to look for faux mini pumpkins. But I was out of luck and they were sold out for the season. I didn't want to buy real pumpkins in fear that they would be rotten by the time Thanksgiving rolls around. I did find some mini pumpkins made out of dried corn husks and decided to improvise. After all this is about crafting and making it my own. I wrote out our guests' names using a gold calligraphy ink pen onto tags and attached them using sisal twine I already had laying around the house. For the two pumpkins that will sit at the head of the table, I used glittery pumpkins I found in the clearance bin.
This was a quick and simple project. I hope to add several more projects to our Thanksgiving decor this year.
