9 Best DIY Thanksgiving Place Cards

I love using place cards at social gatherings that I host.

Not only do they fend off any uncomfortable conversations (or at least limit them!), but they add the best design touch to any festive tablescape.

I've pulled together the 9 best DIY Thanksgiving place cards to try for your holiday feast.

Why Use Place Cards

Place cards eliminate any social anxiety that guests may have about where to sit.

Especially if you're hosting a Friendsgiving feast with friends from all parts of life: school, work, worship community, neighbors, and other, it's a great way to connect people you think will hit it off (or those who you WANT to hit it off!).

And almost half of the place card ideas you'll find below will take less than five minutes to make.

My guess is you have all the materials you'll need in your scrap craft bin or the great outdoors.

Whichever place cards you decide on, enjoy and share your goodies when you tag #satsumasmiles on Instagram.

Twig and twine place cards

Ah! Foraged place cards are my kind of detail. Hit the park for a nature walk to collect small twigs then wrap them together with some rustic twine.

Make it easy on yourself by dabbing a bit of hot glue between the twigs and then tie them!
