3. DIY Glitter Pine Cone Place Cards

Follow this DIY Glitter Pine Cone Place Card Tutorial for a beautiful seasonal place setting. If you like to entertain, this simple added touch to your table will leave a lasting impression.  

Place your craft paper or newspaper on your work table and secure with masking tape. Now, let’s get started. 

Gently apply the glittering glue to the ends of each pine cone. The Martha Stewart glittering glue comes with it’s own brush, or you can use a separate brush. With a pan underneath, sprinkle the glitter over the glued area. You can re-use the glitter that falls off in the pan as well. I really like the small size of these glitter bottles, with convenient shakers in the top. They are super cute too. 

While your pinecones are drying, cut your card stock into small squares. Be creative with the Martha Stewart glitter pens, and write the names on the place cards. These pens are awesome! The colours are very pretty and they write smoothly. Simply attach the card into the pine cone, and place on each plate.

4. Nature Inspired

Bring nature indoors and create beautiful DIY autumn centrepieces at little or no cost to you. Using natural elements, such as autumn leaves and branches, apples, pumpkins, squashes and seasonal flowers, you can make fresh arrangements that celebrate the autumn season. I love incorporating nuts and coloured berries in rustic wooden trays and woven baskets for side table vignettes too. Even unexpected elements, such as purple cabbage, can add a pop of colour to your table. Happy autumn decorating!
