Golden DIY: Thanksgiving Place Cards

It’s about that time! We’ve got the prettiest DIY project for you today: Thanksgiving place cards draped in gold. They’re festive, fun and easy to create ahead of tomorrow’s celebration.

You know I love a beautiful table setting. A handful of gold pumpkins, pears and leaves will add another element of pretty to your celebrations. Plus, you’ll totally impress your family.

Not hosting this year? You can skip the names, and use the pieces as decor.
