Hi there friends of Doreen!
My name is Debbie and I write and create over at Debbiedoo’s.
I am so happy to be here today and will share with you a quick and easy Thanksgiving place setting idea. Thanksgiving will be here before we know it!
Now, I am no stranger to these place settings. In fact, I have made burlap table place summer settings. I have also made drop cloth table place settings. I had some of these cute burlap gift bags left over from a graduation card holder I made back in the summer. You may have missed that post about Southerners and Monograms. I thought why not use the extra bags, buy another set and have them for our Thanksgiving table this year.
It is tradition that my Mom and sis come in from Buffalo, NY and we always have the most enjoyable Thanksgiving week. It is just our family for the day and we certainly chillax, pig out, and then of course hit the couch. like to set the table nice though for us. These burlap table place settings will be perfect.
As you can see some simple inexpensive supplies.
and the burlap letters.
All the above found at Walmart.
First wrap your ribbon to size on the bottom of the bag. I only had to use a dab of hot glue on the back, and one each corner to keep the ribbon in place. Add your faux leaf tucked under the ribbon with a dab of hot glue on the stem. You can add some hot glue on the back of the leaves as well to keep it flat on the bag.
Take your burlap letter and hot glue it to the leaf. These letters do have a peel and stick option, but quiet frankly, they aren’t very sticky and I found them to lift. Nothing a dab of hot glue can’t fix.
CUTE as cute can be!
Add your napkin and utensils and you have a personalized place setting for you and your guests. Enjoy. Thanks Doreen for having me over today!
