Thanksgiving Place Card Holders

Here is an easy and fun way to display your place cards at your Thanksgiving dinner this year.  All you'll need is:
  • Green Floral Wire
  • Small Pumpkins (real or artificial)
  • Needle-Nose Pliers
  1. Take one end of the floral wire with your needle-nose pliers and make a small loop by twisting your wrist. 
  2. Hold the small loop with two fingers and use your other hand to slowly bend the wire into an open spiral.
  3. When you are done making your spiral, use your needle-nose pliers to make a 90 degree bend in the wire.  Leave about 2 inches of straight wire for a stem.
  4. Insert the stem of your spiral wire into the top of the pumpkin close to the pumpkin stem.
  5. You can purchase small place cards or make your own with card stock and scissors/decorative scissors.  Insert the place cards into the spiral to be displayed.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!


  1. What a clever idea, you seem to be very creative. If you use artifical ones, they can be
    used and packed up to be used again. thanks for sharing. Maggie
