Jen Goode is back this month with place setting ideas for your Thanksgiving holiday! Y’all enjoy!
Nothing is prettier on a festive holiday table than pretty flower place settings. Fresh flowers (or even nice faux flowers) can change the whole look of a classic table set up. Today I have a simple paper napkin ring you can make using your favorite coloring pages. I’ll also show another way you can use fresh flowers on your table.
You can make your own fall candles in just minutes and add some fall scents to your home. This easy way to make candles is perfect for a fall centerpiece or just an everyday way to add some all natural air freshener. Try them on your table or around your home for Thanksgiving or even a fall dinner party. You can also mix up the scents after you master the technique for new scents whenever you want them.
Did you know that you can make fabric pumpkins in just 5 minutes with no sewing required? I used some burlap but any fabric would actually work for this same project. It is so quick and easy and you will love the results. Imagine saying you made this quick and easy fall decor yourself! Grab some fabric scraps and get started right now.
Ever tried using t shirt vinyl to create shirts? How did that go for you? I am here to say that I have never had luck using an iron with heat treat vinyl. Never. Enter the Cricut EasyPress. It has been a god send and I will now be making all the shirts. Family — you have been warned — this is what you are getting for the holidays. Are you ready to break out the t shirt vinyl and rock some shirts? Learn more below! This post is sponsored by Cricut however all projects and opinions are my own.
Tray decoration ideas are perfect for Thanksgiving. You can make this Thanksgiving tray in minutes and display it around your home or use it to serve up some of your meal. This same method can actually be used to make a tray for a variety of seasons and holidays. Just look for plain trays when shopping then adorn them with vinyl cut on your Cricut.
Supplies needed for these tray decoration ideas:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore however a portion of your purchase will go to support this site. Also some of the products below may have been sent to me for free however all projects and opinions are my own.
- White metal tray or other round tray (try Amazon for a few options here)
- Cricut Cutting Machine (Want to see the difference between the machines? I compared the Cricut Maker and Explore here.)
- Transfer tape
- Weeding tools (optional)
- Free downloadable file (click here to download)
Start by downloading the file here and importing into Design Space. Just click upload when you are on your canvas in Design Space.
Click upload image and then find the image in a folder on your computer.
You then have three options for what type of image you are uploading. In this case, simple works perfectly. If you are uploading other images and having issues, try changing up the type here.
Then you come to a screen where you will need to erase all of the excess parts that you do not want.
Just click on all of that “excess” and it will turn checked like the below image.
NOTE: You will have to click the center of each leaf as well as the center of each letter.
Click continue when you are done and you can preview on the next page. Click the back button if there is more you need to erase. Otherwise, in this case, we want to save as a cut image only. Click the cut image and then click continue.
Now the image is in your uploads and you can click it then click insert images.
Resize the image here to the size desired for your tray.
Then cut the entire thing from vinyl using your Cricut. Remove any excess using weeding tools or just by hand. I find that the use of weeding tools is much faster and easier however.
Add transfer tape to the front, burnish well, and peel to remove.
Carefully place in position on your tray. Rub down well and peel back transfer tape to reveal your design now on your tray. Use this same method for tray decoration ideas anytime of the year.
This one can be used to serve up something at Thanksgiving, to decorate your home, or to bring out some Snickerdoodles to your friends.
