3. Create placemats using posterboard and a metallic marker.
We don’t really have the tradition of taking turns around the table to discuss what we’re thankful for because to be honest, we’re not that formal. We’re very lucky to have a family that gets along really well and laughter inevitably fills our kitchen at every gathering. I love it!
But there’s something beautiful about writing what you’re thankful for. Counting blessings always puts life into perspective…even if it’s on a placemat.
4. Paint plastic dollar store pumpkins.
Okay, you don’t have to paint them. But the pumpkins I bought at my local dollar store weren’t convincing as the real thing. See? I tweak. It’s a sickness. But I love the little bit of elegance the white creates.
For our “napkins” I cut up a roll of burlap I had in my craft closet.
So what do you think? Decent for a first try at tablescaping? I think I’m even more excited about how cheap it was than than actual decor itself. The dollar store is freaking fabulous!
