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.


The finished table.  To see more photos of the table, click here!
