Nothing says festive like a fully dressed Thanksgiving table! Hey there everyone, It’s Ellora from Creatively Southern. I’m in a mad dash to dress my table (and the turkey) for the holidays, but no holiday table setting would be complete without placecard holders. This year I’m keeping it simple and getting back to nature with these Thanksgiving pinecone placecard holders.
These are a cinch to make! I used some pinecones I already had in my collection of fall decorating items and just painted the tips with some gold craft paint.
Here you can see the before and after a little better. From blah to bling! Amazing what a little gold craft paint can do for you.
I printed my tags out on the computer and used my 2″ Fiskars scalloped paper punch to get the shape and size I wanted. And guess what? I’m going to save you some time with a free printable of my tags right here at the end of the post!
Now I know that most placecards are for identifying names and seating arrangements. But in our house, we all know one another so I decided to go outside the box with our placecards. I picked out some of my favorite sayings for Thanksgiving and that’s what’s going on the holiday table right along side all those delicious dishes.
This season we have so much to be thankful for and I’m so looking forward to spending time with my family! Not to mention eating all that yummy food! So when we all sit down to share the Thanksgiving tradition this year, we will have these place cards to remind us of the real reason… for we all have been blessed in someway.
And here is a little sneak peek at my Thanksgiving tablescape that I’ll be sharing over at Creatively Southern. Come check it out!
