Sitting in my office one day staring at an excel form, these little ideas popped into my head and I can't wait to use them for our next dinner!  They are great because they are Harvest inspired!

Here is how to make them:

Required Supplies:
Fabric Glue
1 9 x 12 Yellow Stick-It Felt Sheet
1 9 x 12 Tangerine Stick-It Felt Sheet
1 12x 18 Cocoa EZ Felt Sheet
1 9 x 12 Pirate Soft Felt Sheet
1 Hen Egg- 2 1/2" (73.5mm)
1 Doll Head/ Knob- 2 1/4" (57.2mm)
Harvest Place Setting Template
(available here http://www.newimageco.biz/pdfs/harvestplacesettingtemplate.pdf)

1) Cut outHarvest Place Setting Templatepieces from template.

2) Arrange template pieces on corresponding felt and cut out:
     9 x 12 Tangerine Stick-It Felt:
                13 Pumpkin Body Ovals
     12 x 18 Cocoa EZ Felt:
                1 Stem
     9 x 12 Pirate Soft Felt:
                2 Larges Leaves
                1 Small Leaf
     9 x 12 Yellow Stick-It Felt:
                 Cut sheet in half and cut about 3/4" circles. These are your
                 kernels of corn and look great with freehand cut outs.

3) Making the Corn:
     a) Remove the adhesive-backing on a circle.
     b) Start at the top of the egg and work your way down.
       Make sure to overlap each row.
     c) Once complete, glue large leaf pieces on the sides of your corn.

4) Making the Pumpkin:
     a) Fold stem piece about 1/4". Place a dab of glue on the smaller side
       and place on the center of doll head/knob.
     b) Remove adhesive-backing from first oval and place onto the doll head/
       knob. Use this to help secure your stem in place.
     c) Fill in remaining portions of pumpkin with strips.
     d) Glue leaf onto stem.

These are really cute. I may have to try something like this for our big family Thanksgiving get together Smiley
