Welcome to another great DIY Thanksgiving namecard tutorial. All month long I’m showing simple and elegant ways to spice up your Thanksgiving decorations! This guide shows an easy way to create gorgeous personalized pumpkin namecards. So read below to make each guest feel extra special this holiday season.
Things you’ll need –
- Mini pumpkins (you’ll need one for each guest)
- Gold paint
- Black and white paint (not pictured)
- Paint brush
Draw an outline around the center of the pumpkin. This will help you create a smooth line between the two colors.
Paint the tops and bottoms in alternating colors (see next photo for ideas). I wanted each pumpkin to be unique so by alternating the colors from top to bottom it was easy to do so!
Next up is creating the leaf namecards! You’ll need scissors, a sharpie, and a leaf stencil (I happened to have this decorative leaf that I’ve placed on my table as decoration but it also worked perfectly as a stencil!)
Trace the leaves onto butcher paper. Then cut out each namecard.
Write each guest’s name onto the leaves. Place onto each table setting with the painted pumpkin. Now you have a gorgeous plate setting that is guaranteed to get many compliments from your guests!
