About a month ago, I made this pretty puzzle piece pumpkin and used it as part of my fall home décor. I mentioned that in addition to a fall sign or a picture frame, it could be employed in many other ways. Here is an example. I simply printed up my guest's name on a piece of cardstock and voila, I have a pretty Thanksgiving place card!
I like drama in my decorating, so my pumpkins are big! I want them to make a statement. I also want them on the larger side, as my guests will take them home and a big pumpkin will be more functional for them to use in their own decorating next fall. Larger place cards can also be hung of the back of a chair, if you add twine.
Of course, if you want smaller place cards, it's very easy to resize your pumpkins. Smaller pumpkins can also be mounted on a slice of paper towel roll to make name card napkin holders. The shape can be altered to fit your fancy, as well ~ turkeys, acorns, leaves, etc.
Like I said in the original post, which includes the complete how to, the possibilities are truly endless.
Now, place cards are fun, but if you really want to raise the hostess bar, you could take a Thanksgiving group shot and send everyone home with a copy, ready to be framed in their puzzle piece name card party favor to remember the holiday!
You don't think you'll have time to orchestrate the perfect group shot, download the pictures and print up a copy for your army of guests in between cooking, serving & cleaning up?
Don't worry, neither will I!

I have also used them to make Valentine pretties, too!
I hope that you are enjoying fall and this wonderful Thanksgiving season!
