Thanksgiving Place Settings

Looking for an inexpensive way to add charm to your table and indicate seating arrangements?  Enter the paper pumpkins!  We had this on our list of crafts to make last year and we never made it to these darling litte crafts.  Here’s what we used:

  • 12 x 12 scrapbook paper (makes 2 pumpkins)
  • green paper
  • brass brads (2 per pumpkin)
  • twine
  • leaf pattern scissors (optional)

Cut 12×12 paper in half.  Cut each half into strips of 10 or more.  Punch a hole on both ends of the strips.  Use a brad to secure the “bottom” of the pumpkin.  Fan out the strips in a circle- it will look like wheel spokes.  Cut a leaf from the green paper and punch a hole in one end.  Write name on leaf (my little guy liked this job), insert brad, and begin pulling each strip up and onto brad.  Once all strips have been gathered, secure brad.  Cut piece of twine, slip under leaf, and tie.  Easy and adorable, these can be placed on each person’s plate.
