This year we held Thanksgiving dinner at Charlotte's house. As a family, we aren't too into decorating (except for Christmas), but Char did want to do a few special things for the holiday. We made place cards using a paper leaf and a page from a book. We just glued the leaf onto the paper and voila! Also my mom made the table runner and napkins, just so you know. She's pretty awesome like that.
This isn't a very good shot of the table, but take a close look. Char and Frank found the table top sitting on the side of the road so they snatched it up. It didn't have any legs, so Frank found a fallen down branch/tree and used that for legs. Char said the cost of this massive table was $3. Now that's a bargain!
We also made this wreath to hang in the living room. Char bought a straw wreath and we attached the paper leaves with a glue gun. We made a good team; I glue, she sticks on leaves. The leaves are made from book pages and regular paper.
I know we are way past Thanksgiving, but I thought I'd share it anyway. I really liked these little decorations because they added a nice homey feel to the day.
