DIY Rock Thanksgiving Place Cards


You have probably noticed that we’ve been talking a lot about the holidays lately, especially if you follow us on our social channels too. Well, never fear. We aren’t totally glossing over Thanksgiving. It is one of my very favorite holidays after all. My birthday actually lands on turkey day sometimes. It did last year! Nothing beats a full on Thanksgiving feast that also serves as your birthday feast. Just sayin’.

So, I am about giving this oh so special day of thanks its due. I just happen to be kind of Christmas obsessed, so I just can’t wait to start talking about it until December. Haha! That being said, Thanksgiving is actually the topic at hand today…And in case you love giving thanks as much as we do, I thought we could talk about Thanksgiving tablescapes…

Now as far as tablescapes go, I am a big fan of inserting personal elements into the Thanksgiving table design and that’s easily done with place cards. I am specifically talking about DIY Thanksgiving place cards! And I have a super simple tutorial that is going to show you how to do just that. And, better yet, this easy rock Thanksgiving place cards craft calls for just 4 items!
