Paper Leaf and Twig Thanksgiving Placecards

So excited to have Jessica from Two Shades of Pink back with us today.

Hey old friends!  Jessica here again sharing some Thanksgiving holiday inspiration. This time its a little diy to dress up a tablescape. These paper leaf and twig place cards are cute, simple and inexpensive. 

I have no doubt you will have as much fun as I did making them. :)

You will need small, Y shaped twigs from the yard and small paper leaf cut outs.  I used a paper punch but you could easily cut out birch shaped leaves from colored card stock or paper.

I used white paint to dry brush the twigs. White makes the colorful leaves pop and gives it a wintery feel.  But leaving it alone will make it look great too.

After you make the leaves, bend them a bit so they look a little more natural. 

Hot glue them to your twig.  

I chose natural spots that would look like a leaf growing from a tree branch.

I have all this great jute twine that is super thin and rustic looking. It's perfect for a project like this.

I used photoshop to make some colorful ribbon shaped name tags. In case you are wondering, the font I used is brain flower...which is a completely awesome font name.   

Just punch a hole at the end of your printed or handwritten tag and tie to your little twig.

Such pretty place cards!

Perfect for a thanksgiving place setting.

Thanks everyone and I hope you have a great Thanksgiving Holiday!
