i couldn't be more excited that thanksgiving is here and i have an extra two days to tack onto the weekend to spend time with my family, eating and relaxing (and maybe i'll squeeze a little shopping in there too....). in honor of this turkey day and getting a significant amount of the fam together, i decided to make use of the extra time laying around to get crafty. i came up with these d.i.y. pinecone place card holders; they were easy to make and will add a little shimmer to the dinner table. i hope you enjoy them as much as i had fun making them!
'd.i.y. pinecone place card holders'
|what you'll need: pinecones (1 per place setting), letter stamps, ink pad, scissors, pack of place cards, gold nail polish; optional: border stamp, tray or plate to keep polish from surface of craft area|
|paint the tips of the pinecone with the gold polish moving from side-to-side to cover the full surface of the tip; i also painted up and down on each piece to get a peek of gold if you are looking down on the top of the pinecone.|
|gorgeous gold tips|
|i love the pop of sheen that the metallic polish adds to the edges!|
|after the tips dry, gently wedge the place card into the top ridges of the pinecone.|
|the finished product!|
