There is a time and a place for complicated…..well maybe…but Thanksgiving isn’t it.
Truth be told…we don’t think a lot of times call for complicated!
You have your AMAZING company coming, Uncle Ted and his family. Hopefully they won’t leave the wet towels on the floor again this year.
A house to clean, “Quick throw that stuff in the closet and see if the door will shut!”
Shopping for all the food. “Let’s take 2 cars to the store this year. Last year we didn’t get it all in one trip.”
And let’s not forget about all the cooking. “What time did you say we are starting to cook and they will eat it all in 20 min?”
Let’s just put the holiday table on simple duty shall we?
Using what we have, #salvageresources, we made these easy:
WINE CORK PLACE CARD HOLDERS
And if you have some kids you trust with a paperclip and needle nose pliers, they have a new job this Thanksgiving!
- Needle Nose Pliers
- Paper Clip
- Craft Stick (optional)
- Wine Cork
- Scrapbook Paper (literally scraps)
- Pen, Marker (we used calligraphy markers)
- Any Embellishments You Want to Add

With the needle nose pliers, open up the paper clip so it’s straight.
Take a craft stick, if you have one, and poke a hole in the wine cork. If you don’t have a craft stick, just use the needle nose pliers to grab the paper clip to insert it into the cork.
At the top of the paperclip, start curling the paperclip around the pliers. Remove the pliers.
Take your decorated placed card and stick in the curl part of the paperclip.
Now you’ll have time for all those dishes.
