A Thanksgiving table is always pretty, but adding little decorative details can make a big impact. One way to do this is with decorative DIY placecards. Not only will placecards add beauty to your table, but it will make your guests feel welcome and special. Here are my three DIY Thanksgiving placecard ideas that’ll take the look of your table to the next level.

Wine Glass Placecards

  • Small gourds
  • Tags with a tie

Make sure the gourds you choose will fit under the top of your wine glasses. Put a gourd next to each place setting. Place a wine glass stem side up over each gourd.

Step Two

Write the name of each guest on your tags with a glitter marker. Tie each tag around the stem of the wine glass at their place setting.

  • Gold metallic ribbon
  • Green moss
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors

Cover a work area in a well ventilated room with a tarp or large plastic bag. Spray paint your flower pot gold. Put the pot rim side down on the plastic to dry.

Step Two

When dinner is over, put each placecard in a gift bag, and give it to the guest it belongs to.
