Hi! Its Ali from Dream Crafter!
Whenever I think about Thanksgiving crafts, the first thing that comes to mind is a beautiful table setting. I’m a real sucker for a pretty place setting with all the little details that make the meal special. My husband of course, could not care less as long as the food is good. But I guess thats why we make such a good team. So today I wanted to show you an easy way to dress up your place settings for Thanksgiving in one day! (My favorite kind of craft.)
-A clay you can bake in the oven like “Sculpey” or you can make a homemade version like a salt dough.
-Sculpting tools (like a fancy butter knife from your kitchen)
Ok, I have to admit something here. This is a total no no for crafters but I’m going to be honest. I was walking through the D.I. the other day and I found a bag of these gorgeous handmade clay pumpkin rings that someone had already taken the time to make. Boom. I didn’t even have to sculpt my own. Which is good because I would probably butcher them and they would end up looking like blobs instead of pumpkins. But if you have ANY skill with play dough, you should be ok. Just make them like these with straight edges and with a center large enough for the napkin to go through and you are all set.
This is what they looked like when I found them at the thrift store: (Sorry for the terrible pic. I took it with my iPhone.)
