Fall Tablescape Place Cards


These are my super easy and inexpensive place cards for this year’s Fall Tablescape.

1. I purchased these great drink coasters at Micheals craft store. They were around $2 for a package of 6. There were two different kinds and I’ve used them for all sorts of things so far.

2. I purchased a package of fall leaves with wire stems at the Dollar Store. These leaves are great and look like they are made out of crate paper and wire. They look far more real to me than most of the fall leaves out there.

3.  Some names printed on card stock.

4. I used this foam super-stick tape to piece this project together. The tape I bought at Walmart, and use for all sorts of projects.

First, take the leaf and wrap the stem in the pinecone. Adjust until secure and stand it up how you’d like.

Next, stick some of the foam tape on the coaster and then stick the pinecone to it.

Then stick a tiny piece of foam tape on the place card…

….and stick it on the leaf.

That’s about it.

Quick and easy….

And I think they probably break down to around 50 cents a piece.

I made one for all the kids.

I really don’t think we’ll even have Thanksgiving at our place, but since this is probably one of the only fall’s I won’t be renovating (first fall in 5 years I haven’t been), I’m going to sieze the moment and set the table for fall!

  4. These are so great, Katie. I am going to look for that tape next time I am in Wal Mart. Visiting from Met Monday. xo

  5. This is a fantastic project! Those place cards just scream fall.
    Would you consider linking this up at my Pinworthy Projects Party? I hope to see you there!

  6. Fall definitely did not throw up on your tablescape! It’s beautiful complete with a tutorial! You’ve put my sad little dollar store crows to shame …



  7. Festive and simple ~ such pretty placecard inspiration, Katie!

  8. K, seriously, my kids LOOOOOOVE stuff like this. Especially my girls (ages 4 and 6). The whole thing is brilliant…and I can even send them scanger-hunting for pinecones to boot! I love the simplicity yet elegance here. So many fall-time decor things are beautiful but way too intense for a girl like me. This is one project that I can handle and would even want to. Thank you!

    • Glad you liked it! That would be a good idea for a scavenger hunt for the pieces…..it would keep mine busy for awhile.:)
