Short story and an even quicker craft for you all. For work I had to photograph a Thanksgiving tablescape. Well, a few plates, a little vase and no food made for a pretty bare table. I mean the plates were just sitting there looking so sad and boring, so I did what any self-respecting crafter would do: I wrestled up a little place card holder with things I had lying around.
- Craft paint
All you do is just paint the tips of the pinecones with a little paint – or the whole pinecone if that’s your thing – and let it dry. I used a little bronze paint because it matched the color scheme, but something bright would be way fun.
To complete this little ditty I made things more complicated than they needed to be. I used a little craft paper and stamped on the names with paint. Yes, I could have just written names, but this project would have been 20% less rustic.
My family would never abide by assigned seating, but if you’re a fancier type but not so fancy that you’d mind pinecones on your plate, give this a try.
