Yay Thanksgiving is here! I've meant to post this all week, and things are just busy, but this is what I'm doing for our Place Cards this year! I think they turned out cute!
I had my 4 year old his little buddies gather a whole bunch of pine cones, which is a great activity for little kiddos! They loved it... I plan on making a wreath too so I had them get a whole bunch!
saw the pine cone right down the middle... the pine cones that are more "gathered" and "tighter" on the top work best...
I snagged some glitter paint and sprayed them all so they were shiny and pretty... I actually wasn't super impressed with this spray paint it didn't spray on very evenly... there was a moment where I think ALL the glitter came out at once so they got sprayed heavy on one side... maybe I should have shoook it looonger...? just a thought, but it did the job and they are pretty and sparkly!
I got some cool textured paper that was "two toned", the one I printed the names on was a cream and mustard color and the backing paper was a pretty shiny maroon... great fall colors... I printed all the names out on my computer and sanded the edges so the other color came through, and brought out the texture...stuck them together with a cute Brad and slid them in the pre-cut pinecones! Super easy, I think they'll look cute on the pretty, set, table!
