Thanksgiving Place Settings- 2x2 Wood Turkey and Pumpkin

This post contains affiliate links.

I know that it’s a little late for Thanksgiving posts, but I just made these last night and I couldn’t not share them! 

Since we are hosting Thanksgiving this year, I wanted to make some fun place cards for everyone.  I also wanted them to be a decoration since I wasn’t planning on having a center piece or anything.  So this is what I came up with, a little turkey and pumpkin!

This is how I made the turkey:
I took some popsicle sticks and covered them with fun washi tape

Then I cut a 2x2 to 3 1/2” and spray painted it brown.  I glued the sticks and then used a staple gun to secure them onto the back of the wood.

With vinyl I cut out with my silhouette, I decorated to turn it into a turkey.  Then I wrote the name on the feathers.

We will have 11 kids, so I made each one of them a turkey.

And here it looks on the table!

I wanted to do something different for the adults, so I made some little pumpkins for them.  I made the stem out of card stock covered with washi tape.  Wrapped wire and raffia around it and then attached a tag.

 I would love it if you follow along!
