{Thanksgiving Table} Simple Place Cards

I'm not sure how it happened, but Thanksgiving is next week! We're hosting my in-laws, and fortunately, my mother-in-law cooks most everything the turkey, so I get to focus on the table setting. Which is really my favorite part...besides the eating. It's not like we need to be told where to sit, but it's fun to make everyone feel special with their own place card. And bonus points for these cute yarn pumpkins, because they are easily crafted with the kids, too.

{Supplies}
Small Styrofoam Balls
Yarn, the thicker & nubbier the better
Sticks
Craft Paint
Glue Gun

I know the supply list doesn't exactly match the supply image...things sometimes change during the course of a project. In other words, I work out the kinks and give you the shortcut! In this case, I learned the hard way if you don't paint the balls first, you'll have to wrap them with 87 feet of yarn before all the white is covered. TWSS

I also learned if you don't hot-glue the end of the yarn in place, your entire ball will unravel. And that, folks, is what she said.

This project doesn't really call for detailed picture instruction, but how else can I show off my raggedy manicure?!

I'd originally planned to make my sticks gold, but decided I liked the natural state.

To keep the balls from rolling around (do I really need another TWSS, or is it just assumed at this point?), hot glue a coin to the bottom.

I cut shapes intended to resemble leaves out of craft paper for the name tags.

How's that for the cutest little place cards you ever did see? I'm working on the rest of the table setting and will have that for you soon. Oh, and life gave me a break this weekend, so I have this nook stylin' and profilin', and I'll show you tomorrow!

In the meantime, check out my other Thanksgiving tables & crafts here.

  7. Cassie, you sure knocked the orange, styrofoam, yard covered ball out of the park with this one. What a great simple project. I think I could maybe even get my kids involved in this one. Thanks for the inspiration!
