thanksgiving_setting1-c It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week. Your probably busy planning your menu and not thinking of decorating your table.

I have a fun project that you can do for the kids table that will create a ton of fun memories for them.

Here's what you'll need:

Spray Paint {I used a metallic one}

Elements from nature like pine cones, leaves and mini pumpkins

Burlap

A tube or two of acrylic craft paint

Stock Paper

Directions:

1) Spray paint your pumpkins, pine cones and or leaves in a well ventilated space.

2) I got the idea for the burlap silverware holder from here, but instead of ordering burlap sacks I actually had some burlap garland on hand {it's extremely useful to have on hand for decorating or even flower arrangements}. I folded them into a pocket shape and sealed the seams with double sided tape. And lastly had my eight year old paint a bright orange stripe for a pop of color.

3) The place card holder I created using PicMonkey, which offers a ton of designs and font options. There are step by step instructions here on what size you need your work to be saved to make sure it prints out perfectly. I made some space so the children can write what they're thankful for.

This was a fun project and very easy to personalize. We created magical memories when we went out in search of leaves and pine cones and when we discussed and shared what each of us is thankful for.

For this setting along with spray painting the pine cone we also painted the edges in orange to match the utensil holder - Michelle Lara For this setting along with spray painting the pine cone we also painted the edges in orange to match the utensil holder.
