I can’t even believe it’s already November. I love this time of year and the anticipation of the holidays has me so excited. With Halloween over I’m looking straight towards Thanksgiving. To bring you guys some ideas for decor and entertaining this Thanksgiving my best blogger friends and I teamed up for a blog home to share “Elements of Thanksgiving.”
We each are sharing an essential element to any great Thanksgiving. I’m sharing these easy DIY place cards that can be used again and again.
This Thanksgiving I wanted to go very simple and use natural elements in addition to my typical color scheme, blue and white.

The DIY place cards are really simple to make. It’s just sculptor’s clay rolled out to about a 1/4 of an inch then cut into a circle. I used a biscuit cutter to cut the circle. I pricked a hole in the top for a string then baked it in the oven according to the clay instructions.
Once the clay place cards were cooled, I wrote my guest’s (ehm… husband’s) name with a metallic sharpie. I tied a string to the top.
I love this idea because your guest can take it home and use it as a name tag on something else or even as an ornament for Christmas.
