Easy Thanksgiving Tabletop Crafts

Pretty Packaging
Our thanksgiving table crafts will set the decor for any occasion. Whether it's a feast for the whole family or a simple Thanksgiving lunch for a few, easy embellishments can turn any meal into a festive holiday affair.

Wine Cork Place Card

Create a rustic Thanksgiving tablescape with this Thanksgiving craft for adults. To make these adorable wine cork place cards, cut a horizontal slit across the top of the wine cork and slide in a place card. To make the place card stand on its own, cut a thin slice from the bottom of the cork so it sits flat on the tabletop. Finish your Thanksgiving place setting with printable cards designed by artist Esther Clark. 

Rosemary Wreaths

Get creative with any extra rosemary sprigs that didn't quite make it into the main meal. These rosemary wreaths from Camille Styles are undeniably adorable and are the perfect Thanksgiving table setting idea. Place them on dinner plates or use them as napkin rings!

Tassel Napkin Rings

Match each place setting to your existing decor with this easy Thanksgiving craft. Buy yarn or string in a color that matches or compliments the rest of your tablescape. To make the tassel, cut several long pieces (make sure they're all the same length) and fold so all of the ends face downward. Tie the top loop off with an additional piece of string, and attach to a small braid for a pretty napkin ring.
