DIY Apple Place Cards

My Mom hosts Thanksgiving every year. This year she is letting me and my daughter do some decorating, place cards and centerpiece. Here is an easy place card idea that you can create even the day of Thanksgiving if you wish.

What you need to create these place cards:

  • Apples
  • Paper
  • Toothpicks
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Water
  • Plastic Bowl
  • Cotton Swab
  • Glitter
  • Plastic Leaves

The first step was to create a name tag. I created mine using Photoshop but you could easily do this by hand. Cut it out and tape it to a toothpick. 

Stick the toothpick in the top of the apple.

Mix the glue and water into the plastic bowl and paint the plastic leaf using the cotton swab with the glue mixture. Then pour the glitter over the leaf. Shake off extra glitter. If you do not have glitter you could always use the leaf plain or paint it a pretty color. The final step is to glue the leaf to the apple. (Make sure you tell your guests not to eat the apple if you use the glitter.
