thanksgiving Crafts: Last Minute Name Cards & Pinecone Holders11.24.2015
Pinecone Place Card Holders
My kids and I gathered ours outside on various walks, but you could get yours at any local craft store if you want to go that route.
2) Purchase some sturdy gold wire from your local craft store.
I made sure to position my extra 5-6 inches of gold wire in the middle of each pinecone so that my place cards would be standing in the center. But, you can place yours wherever you like. I just tend to like things centered.
4) Wrap your wire around your pinecone.
An easy way to do this is by forming a hooked section at one end of your wire that you can use to latch around your pinecone. This will then hold one end of your wire more easily in place while you wrap the rest of your wire around the pinecone.
5)Form the holder for your place card with your leftover 5-6 inches of wire. Simply do this by clamping your pliers down on the end of your wire and twisting it around to form a spiral.
6)Write your guests' names on each place card and then set your card in your wire spirals. Set your place card holders on your table and you're done!
Bonus: the best part about these pinecone place card holders is that you can send them home with your guests as a memento of the wonderful holiday you spent together.
p.s. Come back tomorrow for a fun thanksgiving video that I put together with some of my favorite companies and friends.
