If you want to make an impact at your Thanksgiving dinner why not try making some embroidered name cards? They are super easy and cute and depending on what colors you use they can match your decor perfectly! Plus your guests can take them home as a sweet little personalized gift.
What You Need
- Hand Embroidered Leaf Pattern (full pattern here)
- Embroidery Thread
- Felt (I get mine from BenzieDesign, it’s so soft and lovely)
- Hot glue (optional)
1. Embroider your leaves onto felt and then cut them out leaving an outline around each. Cut your felt into 1.5″ x 6″ strips.
2. Embroider names onto the strips close to the center. I just use a pencil to write a name and then I stitch over the lines. If you don’t like your handwriting you can always find a free font that you love, type the name, and then trace that onto your felt.
3. Match the edges of your strip to make a circle and then place a line of hot glue to attach the ends together. Hot glue a leaf near the stitched name. You could always stitch everything together instead of using glue!
4. Decorate your table by using your rings as napkin rings or just stand them up among some fall decor!
You still have time to add a special touch to your Thanksgiving table so don’t wait to get your hand embroidery leaf pattern!!
Do you have any fun Thanksgiving traditions? A bunch of our family lives in PA (we grew up there) so they come here to NC to visit every Thanksgiving. So the Friday after Thanksgiving is “Christmas” with all of them! It’s so much fun to still be able to celebrate with them.
