DIY Thanksgiving Placemats - CHI Hair Care - Professional Hair Care Products

Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away. Does anyone else feel like they’re in a constant race against the clock? Between text threads with family about plans, adding some fall flavor to the house, and menu planning, to-do lists are longer than ever.

The holidays can definitely be stressful, but don’t forget to set aside a little time for yourself while you mentally prepare for a few months of feasts and festivities. Plan a craft night with the family or a wine night with your favorite ladies and make these DIY Thanksgiving placemats. Not only will it give you a little time to breathe amongst the holiday hustle and bustle, you’ll add a cute, customized touch to your Turkey Day decor.

We liked these orange placemats for our table, but any fall color – like maroon, brown, or mustard – would work well. We used Cricut Design Space to create the text for the placements, but you could also use a program like InDesign or Illustrator.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to creating your iron-ons. Turkey graphics, fall foliage, or messages of thanks – they’re all fair game (get it?) when it comes to your Thanksgiving table.

Once the iron-ons are printed and cut to size, it’s time to iron. Directions vary by the type of transfer paper you purchase, but make sure you’ve turned your CHI iron’s heat ON and the steam OFF.

Once the iron is set to temperature, place the custom iron-on onto your placemat, and apply pressure as you set the iron down on top. As soon as you’ve pressed the iron-on for the time indicated on the packaging, remove the iron and let it cool. When the iron-on is cool to the touch, peel back the transfer paper.

With the custom placemats finished, and the bird in the oven, all that’s left is the last minute touch-ups. Run your CHI® flat iron through your hair one more time, set the table, and wait for the doorbell to ring.
