6 Easy Place Settings for your Thanksgiving Table

6 different DIY Thanksgiving place settings

It’s that time of year again, Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Decorating your table for Thanksgiving can seem tedious and stressful. We’ve simplified this for you with our 6 different table settings.

We used a Cricut to create our place setting cards and a few extra decorations. The Cricut is an easy-to-use machine to cut out and create different decorations from a variety of materials such as paper, vinyl, cardstock, and even leather!

They’re very simple to use but they make for very sophisticated looking decor. Each place setting card can easily be personalized using the Cricut as well. The pen feature on the Cricut is great for writing names on each place cardholder.

Some of the Cricut templates cost extra money, but they also give you the ability to design your own templates using their software as well.

It just requires several different materials: burlap bound to a craft paper, brown glitter cardstock, and the letters are made from thinner cream cardstock.

The table setting is complemented by a Thanksgiving-themed  ‘Bountiful’ water glass. The gold removable vinyl adhesive can be easily be replaced with ‘joy’ or ‘Happy Holidays’ for your December gatherings.

Notice the cute mason jar with ‘gobble’, again another removable vinyl adhesive sticker.

The gold ‘give thanks’ adds another nice themed touch if you’d don’t want to use place holders.
