Guide Thanksgiving guests to their seats — and give little hands a fun project in the days beforehand — with easy embroidered table cards. Stitch each name onto a sturdy leaf (these are magnolia), and let nature's paper spruce up the feast.



  1. embroidered leaves

    Set leaves upside down on a work surface, with their midribs and veins facing up. Write guests' names (in simple block letters) on the leaves in gold marker.

  2. Thread a plastic needle, and go over the names in a basic back-stitch (with the stitches overlapping slightly). Let the leaves dry for a few days so they get crisp.
