I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

DIY Pumpkin Placemarkers

An inexpensive, festive way to decorate your Turkey Day or Halloween dinner table.

Get some mini pumpkins. I chose these Baby Boos. 

And something to create a tag with. I hit the dollar store looking for little die-cut cardboard circles, tiny gift tags or stickers. Then this felt placemat caught my eye! You may have seen it in photos of my Thanksgiving Soup post here:

The leaves were just the size I was looking for. I tried sharpie marker to write with which didn't work out very well. But this dimensional fabric paint did the trick! Then it was just a matter of snipping each leaf off the placemat and sticking each leaf/name tag on each pumpkin with a straight pin. Of course, if you're a real keener just get a piece of felt and cut out each leaf by hand. (I don't have that kind of time or patience!)

And don't forget... these are pumpkins and quite edible. Google some mini pumpkin recipes once they have done their placemarking duty.

Here's my Mini Stuffed Pumpkin recipe:
