Nothing can compare with the beauty of nature, but you can certainly try with these leaf and twig place cards. They’re perfect for Thanksgiving, but could also be lovely for a fall bridal or baby shower. Use different materials, like crepe paper and corn husks (available at the supermarket), to give the leaves a variety of textures.
Step 1: Cut down real branches/twigs to about 4 or 5 inches tall. Try and use twigs that have offshoots and arms.
Step 2: Using a paper leaf punch, punch out leaves in cardstock, crepe paper and/or corn husks in a variety of colors.
Step 3: Cut the little stems off the paper leaves (optional) and using hot glue, attach the leaves to the twigs.
Step 4: Stamp guests’ names onto colored paper.
Step 5: Cut out the name and notch the end of the tag.
Step 6: Using double stick tape, secure the name tag to the stem of the twig.
