Halloween is just around the corner so you know what that means…time to start thinking about Thanksgiving! Hah, no worries, you’ve got plenty of time to start planning your holiday menu and table. Just in case time gets away and you find yourself needing some easy Thanksgiving table decorations, I’ve come up with four fun ways to use the Darice® Autumn Leaves Die Cut Shapes!
- Darice® Autumn Leaves Craft Dies.
- Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.
- Core’dinations Tim Holtz Nostalgic Collection Paper Pack.
- Brown and White Baker’s Twine.
- Double Sided Hercules Tape.
To make the small bouquet of paper leaves that is used in each of the projects, use the die cut shapes and machine to cut leaves out of different Autumn-themed colors of paper. Use small pieces of the double-sided tape to adhere three different leaves together and finish with a baker’s twine decorative bow.
With your little leaf bouquets finished, now comes the fun part! You can use these awesome leaves to accent your entire Thanksgiving event. To make the napkin holders, cut a small strip of burlap and create a loop with a piece of double sided tape. Use another piece of tape to adhere one of the leaf groupings to the front. Crazy easy, right?
And what would a party be without some decorated mason jars?! Add another strip of burlap and the leaves to some basic mason jars for an inexpensive but pretty flower vase! You could even use these jars to hold utensils or crayons for the kids.
Hope you enjoyed these leaf decorating ideas for your Thanksgiving table! The best thing about the awesome Darice® Autumn Leaves Die Cut Shapes is that they can be used so many different ways. The possibilities are endless! We’d love to see what you do with yours on the Consumer Crafts Facebook Page. Hope you have a wonderful (and crafty!) Holiday Season!
