DIY | Pumpkin Place Cards | Photos by Claire Ryser of Visionaire Studios


Claire Ryser of Visionaire Studios stopped by a couple weeks ago to document some DIY projects.  We created a Fall inspired tablesetting that featured these mini pumpkin placecards. 

 I started with white mini pumpkins and wrapped the stems with blue painters tape.

Next, I sprayed the pumpkins with a soft gold spray paint.  Be sure to spray about 12 inches from the pumpkin in light layers.


After drying for 10 minutes, I removed the tape.

I made a vertical cut in the the stems with a pair of floral shears. 


I inserted a name card in the cut of the stem.


Done!

  2. Love this! Did you use real or fake white pumpkins?

  3. Hello, I was just curious what type of paint did you use for these? Was it just generic spray paint or did it have to be a certain type to make it stick evenly?

    Thanks!
