DIY Pumpkin Place Cards

September 29th, 2010

It’s been a while since I’ve done a DIY just for Twig & Thistle, so today I’m doing something about it! These place settings are super easy and a great way to add a little festivity to your next autumnal get together. All you need are mini pumpkins, card stock and floral wire.

1. Download and print the Leaf Template onto green card stock, then cut out using scissors or an x-acto knife.

2. Take a length of floral wire and wrap it around a pencil, slide it off and stretch it out a bit to make it look like a vine.

3. Tape one end of the wire to the back of the paper leaf and wrap middle of the wire around the stem of the pumpkin. Enjoy!

Also, today is the last day of our Silhouette SD giveaway so if you haven’t entered yet, times a wasting!
