Set a gorgeous table this Thanksgiving — and strategically reduce family friction — with these name card projects you can DIY in an afternoon.

Painted pumpkins


Craft paper tags tied to metallic painted pumpkins lend a look that skates the line between rustic and glam. Vicky Barone has the tutorial.

Name-printed ribbons


This project from Make It & Love It uses stenciled names on brightly colored ribbon to add a pop of color to a Thanksgiving table.

Clothespin name cards


Place your guests’ names inside simple clothespins using this easy DIY from Centsational Girl. Stand them up or sit them down at each place setting as you wish.

Cork and feather name cards


Almost Makes Perfect has the how-to for this whimsical name card, which uses a cork and paper feathers to evoke the look of a turkey.

Gold leaf name cards


Use a gold leaf pen to create luxe-looking name cards out of fallen leaves you’ve foraged yourself. Polka Dot Bride has the DIY idea created by Alicia Parsons.
