So excited to have Jessica from Two Shades of Pink back with us today.
Hey old friends! Jessica here again sharing some Thanksgiving holiday inspiration. This time its a little diy to dress up a tablescape. These paper leaf and twig place cards are cute, simple and inexpensive.
I have no doubt you will have as much fun as I did making them. 🙂
You will need small, Y shaped twigs from the yard and small paper leaf cut outs. I used a paper punch but you could easily cut out birch shaped leaves from colored card stock or paper.
I used white paint to dry brush the twigs. White makes the colorful leaves pop and gives it a wintery feel. But leaving it alone will make it look great too.
After you make the leaves, bend them a bit so they look a little more natural.
Hot glue them to your twig.
I chose natural spots that would look like a leaf growing from a tree branch.
I have all this great jute twine that is super thin and rustic looking. It’s perfect for a project like this.
I used photoshop to make some colorful ribbon shaped name tags. In case you are wondering, the font I used is brain flower…which is a completely awesome font name.
Just punch a hole at the end of your printed or handwritten tag and tie to your little twig.
Such pretty place cards!
Perfect for a thanksgiving place setting.
Thanks everyone and I hope you have a great Thanksgiving Holiday!_____________________________
