Are you still in a sugar coma from the weekend? I might be. And soon we’ll be in food comas from the next holiday! I’m so excited to be a part of this awesome blog hop with so many amazing bloggers to bring you some Thanksgiving place setting and tablescape ideas! I have no room to do an entire table so I’ll be sharing with you a Rustic Place Setting 🙂

Incorporated into each one is a DIY so you can recreate them yourself! I really had no idea what I was going to make at first and literally walked the aisles of the craft store picking up random things to buy. I had planned on doing a printable on a cute little clipboard or something but I clearly went a different route 🙂
Here are the supplies you need to make this Rustic Place Setting!
:: Wood Slice
:: Kraft Paper
:: Dried Lavender
:: Metal Letter
First you want to stain your piece of wood. I used Minwax’s Dark Walnut.
I didn’t bother sealing it since the majority of it was going to be covered with paper anyway.
Next up, cut a piece of kraft paper a little bit smaller than your wood and glue it on. I love this Gorilla Glue Super Glue and used it for this whole project 🙂
My “B” was kind of a brassy color and I wanted it to be gold so I spray painted it 🙂
Glue your letter onto the kraft paper. I placed mine a little to the right so there was room for the feather and lavender.
Now take your feather and lavender and wrap some twine around the bottom to hold them together.
Place this on your wood where you want it to be and wrap the twine around a few times to secure it in place.
That’s it! Super easy right? We spend Thanksgiving with my father in law and usually keep things pretty casual, so I probably won’t be making more of these but I’m certainly going to keep it for future use! For now it’s still sitting on our small kitchen table because I love it too much to put it away. I guess I could make one for the hubs too so he doesn’t feel left out 🙂

I’ve been dying to use feathers in a project and this turned out to be perfect one. And paired with the lavender, I just love it! Not only will your place setting look pretty, but it will smell good too 😉
