Thanksgiving Table Signs

A friend of mine was revamping some store displays and tossed a few of these mini easel stands in the trash.  I couldn't believe it - of course I plucked them out! I am all about up-cycling and trash to treasure.

I created these fun table top signs that will go next to each pie on my Thanksgiving dessert display to let people know what they are getting.

And I created this project with my go-to team of products:

These signs already had a black chalkboard finish and were labeled with a permanent marker.

I simply covered the front with beautiful fall inspired paper (Stampin Up) and added a chalk board decal (Michael's)

Now when it comes to embellishing, I love using large clusters of tiny objects - - sequins, rhinestones, mini punched shapes and especially Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest.  And I just couldn't make my clusters without Embellie Gellie - - seriously, what a mess I made before Embellie Gellie and placement took FOREVER.

Simply pick up your embellishment and gently "drop" it on to dots of the Best Glue Ever - and you just need the smallest amount of this glue - honestly!

After all my embellishments were adhered to my sign, I spritzed a bit of the Best Cleaner Ever on to the Perfect Cleaning Cloth and gently cleaned up the excess stickiness and residue around all my embellishments for a perfect finish.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today - - and to see these products in action, check out the videos on the ScraPerfect website - - you will become a fan!

This fantastic Thanksgiving idea is also a great POTLUCK IDEA!!!

PS The thought you have enough dessert varieties to post signs makes visions of sugarplums dance (as if no one is watching) in my head. Mmmmmm!
