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.
Cut strips of the paper about 1/4 inch wide and 2 1/2 inches long. Write the name on one end.
Fold the paper in half with the fold around the stem. Press so it sticks together.
Trim a “V” into the end.
I’ve already got a batch whipped up for our Thanksgiving table. Can’t wait!
