Happy Thanksgiving! I’m here today to share a quick diy project to add some charm to your Thanksgiving table. My main contribution to our family’s Thanksgiving is to decorate the table. It’s a self-appointed job that began last year (or maybe it was the year before) and is something I have fun with. For the most part, I use things I already have, which is true for this project. Even with just 6 people (plus Gabriel) it’s still kind of nice to have place cards. I think they add a nice, personal touch to the table. And they’re fun to make.
Last year I used wine corks. This year I’m using rocks. If you have a few moments to spare and want to add a little something to your table tomorrow, here you go!
River Rocks (1 per person)
Paint (I used gold spray paint)
1. Paint your rocks. I used gold spray paint. But you could use craft paint and a brush, and any color you wanted.
2. Write the names. I cut strips of card stock and wrote each person’s name with a calligraphy pen.
3. When your rocks are dry, put the name cards on each rock and then wrap it with twine, tying the twine in a knot on the front.
And there you have it. Simple, easy, quick and cheap place cards for your Thanksgiving table…. or anytime you want to add a little charm to your meal! Have a wonderful time with family and friends!
