Thanksgiving Easel Place Card Holders

I love adding special little elements to my holiday tables, like my Burlap Painted Ticking Stripe Utensil Holders. So with a family as large as ours, we have more than one table at our holiday celebrations. In my kitchen, the table is a little more casual but still lovely. So, for the kitchen tablescape, I created these sweet Thanksgiving Easel Place Card Holders

Create an adorable Thanksgiving Easel Place Card Holder for your dinner table!

I love the little mini clothes pin! I am planning on writing the names on the fall colored paper leaves in a metallic gold or bronze color. I chose to use a vibrant red color for the canvas so that I can transition these little beauties right into Christmas!

Let’s Get Started Creating!


Supplies Needed For Thanksgiving Easel Place Card Holder:

Step One:

Paint the mini easel the Light Antique White color and allow to dry fully. Paint the mini canvas the Christmas Red color, and allow to dry completely. You may need to paint more that one coat on each to cover fully. Rub the Cinnamon Brown Color onto the mini clothes pin to give it a light stained look, and allow to dry as well.

Step Two:


Once your easel and canvas are completely dry, use a pointed tool { we used a bamboo skewer } to gently poke a hole in each corner of the canvas. I punched the hole from the back to the front of the canvas.

Step Three:


Cut a piece of burlap 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches. Fray each of the 4 sides by gently puling out 3 strands of burlap on each side. Place the burlap on the canvas. Push the gold brads through the burlap and into each hole that was punched to secure the burlap to the canvas, and open the brads on the backside of the canvas. Apply a small amount of hot glue to the mini clothes pin and attach to the center of the canvas on the burlap, near the top.

That is all!  See super easy,simple, and adorable!
