Autumn Dinner…

Tomorrow is September 1st…almost fall, right?  Thinking forward to November and Thanksgiving, I’ve made some pretty table pieces to make each guest feel special…

Its hard to tell from this photo, but I did want to show a close up.  Here’s how it might look on your table…

Now before you ask, the small frame is from Hobby Lobby.  The overall size is 4-1/4″ x 3-3/4″.  Inside measures 2-1/2″ x 2″.  They look nice on the table and would make a nice hostess gift if you wanted to give them as gifts to each guest.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Copper Foil, Thick Whisper White and Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.  Plus White packing sheet found in DSP.
  • Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizazz and Old Olive
  • Stamp:  None!
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Linen Thread, Pretty Pines Thinlits, Burlap ribbon, Rose Wonder Framelit, Aqua Painter, Water Spritzer

Digits

Napkin Rings

  • Cut a piece of white packing sheet from DSP 1-3/4″ x 6-1/2″.  Cut a piece of DSP 1-3/4″ x 6″.  Glue DSP to packing sheet flush at one end.  Add glue to 1/2″ where DSP does not cover and glue together in a circle.
  • Cut one of each of the pine boughs from Thick Whisper White cardstock.  Remove thinlit but leave pine bough in cardstock.  Using a water spritzer and your Aqua Painter with Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizazz and Old Olive ink…spritz boughs with water, add Daffodil Delight ink to painter and lightly go over each bough.  Follow with a brushing of Pear Pizazz and then Old Olive down the centers.  Dry with heat gun and remove from paper.  Glue the three boughs together at stem end.
  • Cut two pine cones from Copper Foil.  Glue together at an angle then to the stem end of the pine boughs.  Make bow from Linen Thread and glue to top of pine cones.
  • Cut a piece of Burlap Ribbon 7″ and glue one end to center of napkin ring.  Fold the opposite end under 1/2″ and glue over opposite end.
  • Add pine boughs and cones to front center of Burlap Ribbon.

Seating Placement Frame

  • Cut a piece of DSP 2-1/2″ x 2″ for frame background.  Cut a Copper Foil background piece using Rose Wonder Framelit and glue to background DSP centered.  I realize the punch I used here for the name is retired, but any shape (could be oval) could be substituted.  Place all inside frame.
  • Make another pine bough and cone piece exactly like the one for the napkin ring and glue (I used hot glue) to top left corner of frame.

I plan to make a set of these for a Christmas Craft Fair I finally got in after applying for two years.  If they don’t sell, I’ll keep them!

Later this week I’ve got some more 3-D paper art projects to share with you…be sure and stop by.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

  1. These items will make a beautiful fall table for you. Congratulations on being accepted at the Christmas Craft Fair. You will sell all you have. I love the pine boughs and pine cones, plus, of course, the linen thread.

    Since both of us are vertically challenged, we need to eat cake every day to keep the kidnappers at bay, right? Love the “b-ism” today. Too funny!

    • Thank you HJ…I do love to make 3-D items especially home decor pieces for a particular season. I store them and bring them back out the next year. Makes is so much easier to change from one season to the next. I’m not much of a sweet eater, but I could eat my weight in popcorn!…B!

  2. What beautiful items, Billie. (I know this is my second post, but I forgot to click to see your comments. I love to read everything you write.) Have a great Thursday.

  3. Love your ideas. Plus it’s so nice to know where you buy your accents. I’m going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to hopefully find your cute frames. That is one store in our area that is great to shop in our smaller city. TFS

    • I hope you find them at 40 percent off like I did…love me some Hobby Lobby! Thanks for stopping by…B!
