Last Minute Recycled Place Card Tutorial
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only two days away?! While I am not entertaining for the weekend this does mark the beginning a month full of cooking and entertaining for me! A simple set of handmade place cards is the perfect way to personalize your holidays table!
Here is a simple, quick, easy and recycled project for creating place cards for entertaining!
Once you surface is dry, use stamps to add pattern (use a contrasting color that will pop!)
Cover the surface with paint (two colors) blend lightly on the surface- I picked a fall palette.
Please note I am using Claudine Hellmuth's fabulous Studio Line acrylic paint- LOVE all the colors!!!!
Use a permanent marker to quickly outline the stamped images for more contrast and dimension.
Add one more layer of stamps in another contrasting color.
Once your cardboard is dry, cut into desired shapes and sizes.
Cut out strips to fit on the folded place card.
Instead of using a pen, try using watered down black paint for pretty lettering on each of the cards.
The result is personal, colorful and handmade place cards for your holiday table!
