Pumpkin Pie in the SkyThanksgiving is only 15 days away, and you still have to buy the turkey, find that green bean casserole recipe you only make at this time of year, and figure out a seating arrangement that will keep Uncle Clark and Cousin Larry far enough apart to avoid a Hatfield-and-McCoy showdown.

Fortunately, creating table décor doesn’t have to be a stressor—we’ve got a couple of project ideas that are fun, easy to make, and will add pizzazz to your Thanksgiving table.

Heart-Felt HolidaysFirst, download this free pdf of (Pumpkin) Pie in the Sky by Aimee Ray from Heart-Felt Holidays! A delectably simple little project, these felted slices can be used as place card holders—just slip a name card between the whipped cream and crust. Plus, each guest can take his or her pie home as a sweet reminder of the day.

Next, check out Five Thanksgiving Placemats Kids Can Make on Babysittingjobs.com. Your kids will have a blast creating nifty little placemats for their own special table using fun items like fall leaves, felt, and golf balls.

So forget the turkey and trimmings for a few minutes and create some table décor that everyone will love (and, who knows, might even distract Clark and Larry from their family feud)!
