Easy Thanksgiving Tabletop Crafts
Idea #1: Make personalized place settings for your Thanksgiving guests with simple scrapbooking supplies. Cut circles from cardstock using decorative scissors. Then apply rub-on letters to the paper circles and place under clear glass salad plates.
Tamale-making husks (available at grocery stores) serve a dual purpose as crafting material. To make these wrapped candle holders, soak husks in warm water for a minute to make them flexible. Tightly wrap a husk around a votive cup and hold in place with a rubber band. Trim excess husk at the top and bottom. Twist a thin length of husk and tie it around the center of the wrapped votive. Remove the rubber band.
Editor's Tip: Make a centerpiece by grouping several of these candleholders atop a colorful fall runner.
