Thanksgiving Place Cards

Give your dinner guests a holiday surprise with these cut Thanksgiving place cards that are a great way to decorate your Thanksgiving table!

What you'll need

  • Paper napkin in fall colors or orange construction paper
  • Small paper clips
  • Apple, any color
  • Almond, with or without the shell
  • Peanut in the shell
  • One Lifesaver candy
  • Two small wiggle eyes
  • Yellow construction paper
  • Hot glue gun
  • White craft glue
  • Marker

How to make it

  1. Hold the almond point down and use white craft glue to attach eyes on rounded part. Let glue dry.  

  2. Use hot glue gun to glue the ring-shaped hard candy to front of apple. Don't use white craft glue as it will cause the candy to start to liquefy and run down the apple (glue the ring-shaped hard candy on the apple's shoulders).     

  3. With hot glue gun, glue almond to ring-shaped hard candy (covering the hole, point down) and let dry.    

  4. Glue peanut below almond for turkey wattle.      

  5. Unfold napkin so it is approximately 6" x 11", then fold accordion style. If you don't have a napkin, you can use a 6" x 11" piece of construction paper.  

  6. Pull ends of folded napkin together to make a fan. Secure with paper clip at bottom. Sit napkin behind the apple. .

  7. Bend the end of the paper clip and insert into apple.  

  8. Cut a piece of yellow construction paper into a rectangle to make a place card. Write your guest’s name on the place card.  

  9. Use a paper clip to hold place card or glue a toothpick to the back of the card and insert into the top of the apple.
