How to Make a DIY Thanksgiving Place Setting


Before I show you how to make this easy DIY Thanksgiving place setting, let me tell you a little back story about how it came to be. During the holidays, I become a crazy person over decorating and making my house look like the Pinterest perfect home. Of course,  I don’t achieve that (really, who does?) but that doesn’t keep me from trying! It makes memories and laughs down the road which is what makes holidays memorable in the first place.

If you’ve been keeping up with my recent posts, you know that my husband and I bought a new house back in September, just in time for the holidays. The funny thing is, we weren’t even planning to buy and didn’t even think it would be possible (due to our credit scores) for at least another year. Well, you can see how that turned out!  Here we are with a brand new house.

It was a bit scary though because the closing for our house happened the week before our vacation, which we have to set up months in advance to get once a year.  We almost didn’t have a house but thankfully, the closing happened just in time for the vacation to go unscathed. It was a close call. Anyways, in our two years of marriage, we’ve not been able to spend a holiday in our own home because we shared a home with others or lived in a cramped apartment/duplex which left no room for any furniture, much less added decorations. Being the crazy holiday person I am, I was very antsy to have a house I could actually decorate. Well, this year, it happened just in time which made me elated to start planning my decorations.


I had a specific look in mind and wasn’t satisfied with the things I found for the table. So, I decided to make my own and hope it turned out right. Here is my finished product! Want to make your own like this? Follow the links below that show you how!
