Harvest Napkin Rings

DIY by Katie Holyfield @fake.it.til.ya.make.it

I love hosting Thanksgiving dinner and creating a bountiful table for my family to gather at. This year I wanted to bring a bit of Harvest décor to our Thanksgiving dinner. These beautiful napkin rings will add a wonderful touch to your tablescape. All you need is some wooden cutout leaves you can find at your local craft store and the Value Pack Stickers – Seasonal Fall.

Items needed:

  • acrylic paint
  • foam paint brush
  • wood leaf craft piece (Dollar Tree)
  • twine (Michael’s) 
  • Fall themed stickers from your favorite Happy Planner seasonal stickers

Directions:

  1. Paint the wooden leaves with two coats of off-white acrylic paint (I used a small foam brush). 
  2. Let the “leaves” dry completely.
  3. Find your favorite Fall & Thanksgiving inspired Happy Planner stickers and place them on the leaves.
  4. Cut thin twine long enough to go through the pre-punched hole on the leaf. Wrap around the napkin several times and loosely tie. Repeat with each of your napkins.
  5. Place napkins at each guests’ place setting for a fun, festive and creative Thanksgiving dinner!

Gratitude List with a Twist

Deatrice McFadden @deeplannerbabe

I always come across gratitude lists written on filler paper and decorated so nicely, but this year I decided to go with a different approach. I wanted to create something that could live in my Memory Planner with photos that I could have as a reminder of how blessed I really am. I know words mean a lot, but photos say so much more! I had some colored scrapbook paper and a pack of Happy Memory Keeping Page Protectors on my shelf, so I decided that they'd be perfect for this project.

I used stickers from the Value Pack Stickers – Seasons of Color and Value Pack Stickers – Colorful Boxes to make my inserts for the pockets just right. I wanted to add in a few slots of grid paper for some journaling throughout the month. This is a great addition to any planner or memory keeper.
