Incorporated into each one is a DIY so you can recreate them yourself! I really had no idea what I was going to make at first and literally walked the aisles of the craft store picking up random things to buy. I had planned on doing a printable on a cute little clipboard or something but I clearly went a different route ๐Ÿ™‚

Supplies:

:: Wood Slice
::Kraft Paper

:: Twine
:: Feather

:: Dried Lavender
:: Metal Letter
:: Stain

Supplies List

First you want to stain your piece of wood. I used Minwax’s Dark Walnut.

Wood Stain

I didn’t bother sealing it since the majority of it was going to be covered with paper anyway.

Next up, cut a piece of kraft paper a little bit smaller than your wood and glue it on. I love this Gorilla Glue Super Glue and used it for this whole project ๐Ÿ™‚

Cutting Paper

Gorilla Glue

My “B” was kind of a brassy color and I wanted it to be gold so I spray painted it with Rust-oleum gold spray paint๐Ÿ™‚

Gold Spray Paint

Glue your letter onto the kraft paper. I placed mine a little to the right so there was room for the feather and lavender.

Gluing Place Setting Together

Now take your feather and lavender and wrap some twine around the bottom to hold them together.

Wrapped Lavender

Place this on your wood where you want it to be and wrap the twine around a few times to secure it in place.

Wrapping Twine on Wood

That’s it! Super easy right? We spend Thanksgiving with my father in law and usually keep things pretty casual, so I probably won’t be making more of these but I’m certainly going to keep it for future use! For now it’s still sitting on our small kitchen table because I love it too much to put it away. I guess I could make one for the hubs too so he doesn’t feel left out ๐Ÿ™‚

For the rest of the setting here is the source list:

:: Gold Charger Plate – Christmas Tree Shop
:: Gold Rimmed Wine Glass – Christmas Tree Shop
:: Brown Leather Placemat – Christmas Tree Shop
:: Plate – Pier 1 Imports
:: Napkin – Pier 1 Imports

Final Place Setting

Fall Place Setting

DIY Place Setting

I’ve been dying to use feathers in a project and this turned out to be perfect one. And paired with the lavender, I just love it! Not only will your place setting look pretty, but it will smell good too ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a fabulous day my friends!

    Have to say I’m liking all table settings I’ve seen so far but yours is very tailored looking and fairly quick to make, easy also. Love that idea. Could use those for any nice dinner you’re hosting. Where did you get your small wood slices and letters? Think walnut is great choice for wood slices. Awesome idea and how you put it together. Great project and post. Happy season
