Cute Crabapple Place Cards

If you’re looking for an easy and budget-friendly place card idea for Thanksgiving, look no further. All you need are crabapples with their perfectly long stems, some paper, tape, scissors, a pen, and about 15 minutes. (And they’re totally cute, too.)

I love these simple place cards for Thanksgiving. Little paper flags fly from long crabapple stems – perfect for the casual Turkey Day table.

Best of all, they’re so simple to make.

You need crabapples.

And paper, double stick tape, scissors, and a pen.

Cut strips of the paper about 1/4 inch wide and 2 1/2 inches long. Write the name on one end.

Fold it in half so you know where the middle is. Stick a small piece of double stick tape on the back.

Fold the paper in half with the fold around the stem. Press so it sticks together.

Trim a “V” into the end.

That’s it!

I’ve already got a batch whipped up for our Thanksgiving table. Can’t wait!

    How adorable! Such a clever idea. Too bad our thanksgiving is already over here, but maybe I can save the idea for Christmas, or next year.

    And crabapples always remind me of Catch-22, which is a very good thing.
