15 Thanksgiving Day Place Cards


Making Thanksgiving Day place cards is a fun way to make your Thanksgiving dinner gorgeous.  Here are 15 tutorials on how to make your own Thanksgiving place cards.

I adore these place cards. Kari has hooked us up with the instructions. You just might see these bad-boys on my Thanksgiving table. {{giddy}}

How amazing is this 3D pumpkin place card from Shelley over at Mocha Memories. She also has a more traditional one in this same post.

Speaking of 3D pumpkins, look at what Christine made! I think they’re adorable.

I found these little beauties over on Libby’s Little Addiction. I really like the ribbon and fall feel.

Here’s another version of a more traditional look. I’m loving how Nitestamper coordinated her altered candle gift.

I know this technically isn’t a place card but I’m loving Crazy Stampin Women’s tutorial on how to make this paper turkey. You could easily put it on a name card.

See! Didn’t I tell you those turkeys would look great on place cards. Thanks to the Sun Stamper we now have a visual.

Here are Bre’s place cards and napkin holders. {{darling}}

WOW! I found this over at Happy Thanksgiving where they also have a couple other fun place card ideas.

I wish they had linked to where they found the ideas so we would have more information. However, I do know that the last one (with the pilgrims) you can buy the kit from Oriental Trading. They are easy to make, I’ve made them with my kiddos.

Hot Rocks Glass Jewels made this simple and elegant place card and placed it in a mini pumpkin.

I really enjoy using things that double as a craft to do with my kiddos. Butter & Sugar hot-glued sweet-gum balls, leaves, and helio-seeds to make place cards for their Thanksgiving dinner guests.

I had to giggle to myself when I saw these boats over on Paperwhite Jewelry. I made these for the first Thanksgiving I hosted in my first home. Oldies but goodies.

Are you looking for a less traditional place card for your table or the kiddos table? Jan has hooked us up with a tutorial on how to make this brilliant water bottle place card.

Each bottle is filled with the receiver’s favourite chocolate bar and a the poem. These would also make fun party favors.

Napkin Holders:

While I was searching for some fabulous Thanksgiving ideas I also came across a couple fun napkin holder ideas. These Pilgrim Pictures from Today’s Housewife cracked me up! I think they’re fabulous.

Here are those fun 3D turkeys again. This time as napkin holders over on Robins Craft Room. {{I can’t get enough of them}}

I hope you’ve been inspired by these ideas and want to thank all the amazing women for freely sharing them!
