This year we are hosting Thanksgiving at our house and I’m really excited. Hosting friends and family is something I love to do. These buffet table food signs I created are a great way to let everyone know the name of each dish.
We are a big family who loves casual dining. This means no fancy table settings but paper plates instead. I love a beautiful table setting and I do set it up for a few dinners for just the four of us but for a crowd this big I always go casual. Ray and I both have 4 siblings so gatherings are always large. I don’t mind it at all though, it’s something I am very thankful for.
DIY buffet table food signs craft
The mini canvas and mini easel craft would be fun to do for all of your holiday parties. This was a very simple and inexpensive project I completed in one afternoon. I was able to spray paint these outside and have them dried in no time.
- spray paint
- mini easel
- mini canvas
- twine (great for gift wrapping too)
- fresh herb (I used rosemary clippings from my yard)
Get your easel prepped:
Spray paint your easel or you can leave it wood if you prefer. I went with gold for the ones in these photos.
I grow rosemary in my back yard and I love the way it smells. I clipped off a few pieces for each mini easel and attached it with some yarn. Twine would have been nice too if you want to make it into a bow and have it show. I didn’t necessarily want mine to show so I used yarn I already had. Be sure to tie it in the middle of the leg in order for the rosemary not to be too top heavy.
After I tied the knot I snipped off the longer strings with scissors. Once I placed the canvas on the easel the yarn would be hidden.
Get your canvas ready:
I spray painted my canvas with black spray paint but you can choose any color to coordinate with your table or party decor. The canvas is a 3 inch square. Cut the card stock paper to 2 1/2 inch square.
Be sure to write your menu item on your white card stock before you attach it to the canvas. It’s easier that way. Attach the paper to the canvas with double stick tape. I did this so I would be able to reuse them. Make it fun too. My menu items were listed by what we call them in our family.
**Helpful TIP: Use a square of your double sided tape to hold the canvas in place while in use
