Looking for a modern rustic Thanksgiving tablescape? Use your Cricut to make these DIY chargers, a raw wood centerpiece, and wall art for the holiday!
It’s that time of the year again! Time to start thinking about our Thanksgiving menu, our guest list, and our tablescapes. I was so excited when I got the chance to work with Cricut to bring you a peek into my dining room. When I saw this design in Cricut design space, I knew I had to use it. Once it got the ball rolling, it became pretty apparent that my dining room was going with a modern rustic Thanksgiving theme.
The “Give Thanks” design really started it all. I loved the idea of putting it on a table runner, but then I remembered this wooden frame I’d picked up at Round Top last spring. It’s white bead board with a very rough wood frame. I thought the quote would look perfect on it. I used Cricut metallic vinyl, and then did a glitter vinyl (in gold and black)for these modern funky leaves.
The leaves were so cool that I decided to use them in my whole theme. I went with shades of gray and black, to give it more of a modern twist. I used more vinyl to attach different sized leaves around the chargers. The same cardstock I used on the wall banner was used to place leaves onto each plate.
Don’t want those napkins to feel left out!
I think the centerpiece stole the show for me though. I simply picked up a piece of raw wood at the craft store. It’s about a foot and a half in length, and about 6 inches wide. I transferred more of the glitter vinyl leaves on it.
The gold and black still give a feeling of fall without the traditional colors.
Recognize those jars? Yep, those are the Oui yogurt jars that I gave a galvanzied look the other day! These are the same but without a monogram.
My buffett featured these fun goodie bags to give out to your guests. I simply love using the Cricut pens in the Cricut Explore Air 2. I swear it’s like magic! I traced out a leaf with a gold glitter pen, and that really made the simple bags from the craft store pop!
My very first Thanksgiving after the Major and I were married we ate at the mess hall. He had staff officer duty that day, and so it was our best option. It was really a neat experience, and I try really hard to remember those who are serving stateside and overseas. I simply cut a square and again used the pens to write the names of our loved ones serving this Thanksgiving.
I think the leaf banner is so much fun, and it was sooooooo easy to do. I would say it would take maybe 10-15 mins to cut and put it together. I love that the Cricut Explore Air 2 allows you to do the fast cut and really save some time!
I think the black and white tablecloth gives a real modern rustic Thanksgiving farmhouse feel. The wood adds that rustic, as does the galvanized items. What do you think?
It’s hard to pick, but I think the centerpiece is my fav. I used short flowers so our guests could actually talk and see each other from across the table.
What do you think? Are you going for a modern minimal tablescape this year?
