Glitzy Thanksgiving Place Setting Menus…a fun last minute craft!


 I know our minds are drifting towards Christmas.  We’re already unpacking the ornaments, garland and lights in our minds, if we haven’t already begun in our homes.

Maybe you are hosting Thanksgiving dinner so you are putting off the Christmas decorating until the last car pulls out of the driveway.

You possibly have those lights already strung up but out of respect for the turkey, will wait until the sun sets on the 22nd to light em up.

If so, I have an easy, fun and last minute craft that costs very little and will keep you in the Thanksgiving mood for just a little longer:

Glitzy Thanksgiving Place Setting Menus and Chalkboard Leaf Name Cards.

They are a great way to make each guest feel special and something you can even have the kids work on.

They can be as elaborate or as simple as you want them to be and with a customized menu inserted, your guests can get a sneak peek at the lovely meal you have prepared for them.

I recently discovered Krylon Leafing Pens, which are the perfect way to add a touch of glitz to these projects! I love the chiseled tip which draws both thick and thin lines, which means you can paint with them and write with them!

Up first I made these darling Thanksgiving Place Setting Menus

I love the metallic sheen on the menu frames, that just shouts “holiday.”  What’s so great about the menu frames, is that the leaves can be replaced and you can create new inserts for your Christmas dinner or New Years Eve party!

I thought the perfect accompaniment to my place setting menus, were Chalkboard Name Cards.  Like stuffing to turkey, marshmallows to sweet potatoes, butter to rolls, these little leaf name cards go perfect with the glitzy menus.

Again, these Chalkboard Leaf Name Cards couldn’t be easier to make!  Using Krylon Chalkboard Paint in spray form or brush on you can use these again and again, or send them home with your guest as a fun keepsake.
