Thanksgiving table decor and napkin rings


I added a little fall/Thanksgiving decor to the dining room table. I picked up new place mats when I got the Halloween mats. I picked some that will match my decor year round, but can be accented for the season. I purchased some sunflowers on clearance at Michael's and put them in the crystal vase that is always on the table. I added my dollar hurricanes that I made for Halloween and filled them with some small gourds and pumpkins. Remember my fall wreath and my pondering what to do with the leftover gourds and such? I found a use for them. I had to pick up another package and add to them but that's okay. The other package was on clearance at Michael's as well when I got them.


 I reused the thrift store napkins and made new rings. I made the rings from a paper towel roll, scrapbook paper and felt leaves cut with my Sizzix. The die is probably out of production but I'm sure they make another version.  Here is a tutorial for the napkin rings. I won't share mine - I did a little extra work and made it hard. It would be much simpler to just follow the tutorial I've linked. The end results are the same.

 
 
 


I'll be linking up to some great link parties this week. Thanks for coming by:



Get Your Craft On

Funny how and when you get ideas. When I looked at the photos in this post, it struck me that I could have made my leaves a little fancier by doing some stitching and maybe even stitching on some seed beads. I won't be redoing them at this point, but maybe it's an idea for you if you make some.
