Holiday Pinecone Placecard Holders

Placecards, a tradition that some consider to be too formal or fussy is making its way back to the table this holiday season. If you are setting the table this holiday season these Glitter Pinecone Placecard Holders are an easy craft for after school with the kids or a fun Girls Night activity.

 

GLITTER PINECONE PLACECARD HOLDERS

What you will need:
• A selection of small to medium pinecones {allow a variety for each person participating}
• Craft glue
• Variety of inexpensive paint brushes
• Small cups to portion glue for each person
• Foil sheets or wax paper to use as workspace placemats
• Glitter, Glitter, Glitter {lots of variety in color & texture}

 

    

           

             
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~ Select your pinecone.

 ~ Place foil sheet down on work surface.

~ Apply glue to edges of pinecone, placing more or less glue will create more or less coverage area for the glitter. There is no wrong method however, do consider the final look you are wishing to achieve.
~ Working in sections ensures glue stays wet and glitter will adhere.
~ Sprinkle glitter over wet glue. Tap off excess onto foil sheet. Continue working around pinecone until desired coverage is achieved.
~ Fold foil sheet and slide excess glitter back into jar. {consider having an additional “multi colored” container for the glitter that ends up mixing together}
~ Set aside to dry overnight.
~ Place name card within the section of the cone so that it sits flat and card it upright.

Write your guests names on cards & place at each placesetting on your holiday table. ~ Cheers!

We recently co-hosted a Make & Take Event with Babyboot Camp for a Moms Night Out where the attendees made these Pinecone Placecard Holders. You can see for your self everyone has their own technique on the amount and variety of glitter but in the end everyone had a great time and went home with their own sparkling jewel to brighten up the holiday table! {if you are interested in planning a fun event with your group please contact us for event ideas & calender availablity.}
