These place card holders would make the perfect accent to your Thanksgiving table or simply a sweet family meal together. The little clothespin can hold a picture, a note, or the person’s name. Ours is holding a little leaf…but won’t it be perfect with their name written on it for that special meal! Now let’s get started…
Supplies Needed to create your Thanksgiving Place Card Holders…
- Wooden Mini Easel
- 3 x 3 Mini Canvas
- Mini Gold Brads
- Christmas Red DecoArt Craft Paint
- Light Antique White DecoArt Paint
- Cinnamon Brown DecoArt Paint
- 1 inch Wood Clothes Pins
- Glue Gun and Gluesticks
Gather your supplies. Paint your easel the antique white color.
Paint the canvas the Christmas red color. Allow each one to dry thoroughly. You may need to paint more than one coat. Lightly rub the Cinnamon Brown paint onto the clothespin, giving it an antiqued look rather than a solid brown color. Let all these dry completely.
Once your canvas and easel are completely dry, use a sharp object to gently punch holes in the corners of the canvas. We used a bamboo skewer and punched the holes from the back of the canvas to the front.
Cut a piece of burlap 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches. Gently fray the edges by pulling about 3 strands of burlap out of each of the 4 sides. Place the burlap on the front of the canvas and push the brads through the burlap and holes that you have already punched. Flip the canvas over and open up the brads to hold the burlap in place. Finally use your glue gun to simply glue the mini clothespin onto the burlap!
Now you have a sweet, little Thanksgiving place card holder! The possibilities for customizing this are endless and you could use it for so many other things! We just love how it all came together…
