DIY Copper Leaf Place Cards November 22, 2016 DIY, Entertaining, Fall Seasonal, Parties and Entertaining Tutorials 4673 Two days before Thanksgiving, and I’m almost done deciding on how my table should look 😛 I mentioned earlier this week that I bought some fabric to make napkins, and I did ACTUALLY make them. Score 1 for me. Next on my list was place cards. I love to use up things in my craft stash for these types of projects, so the only new purchase I had to make was the paint (I have tons of gold, but didn’t have copper). Yes, I actually had 3 bags of faux leaves in my stash. From last year. Don’t judge me! First I painted half the leaves with the copper paint. It took a few coats to get nice coverage. Next I found some leaf shapes online (these), printed and traced them onto some teal cardstock. These pieces will be what I actually write on, once I figure out how to mask my horrible handwriting. I thought about gluing the pieces together, but I remembered I had these tiny clothespins… And now, for a sneak peek at the setting….just a peek… So far, this is all I have. But it’s something. And at the very least we will have eating utensils, plates, and napkins which is technically all we really need to eat!
