DIY Thanksgiving Pear Place Cards

2013 November 19

I love a simple DIY, donโ€™t you? After all who really has time for a complicated project when the holidays are hectic enough? An easy way to decorate any Thanksgiving table is with fresh produce like pears, little white pumpkins, or colorful gourds.

Pear Place Cards

Last week I snapped a photo of the Bosc pears while at the grocery store and printed it to my new Canon PIXMA printer using the Cloud feature. The PIXMA Cloud has become my new favorite way to save inspiration while Iโ€™m out and about! I decided that while Bosc pears are beautiful enough on their own, a quick coating of gold glitter spray paint and a simple Thanksgiving flag would turn them into elegant place cards for Thanksgiving guests. Who says setting a holiday table has to be complicated?

Hereโ€™s what you need to make these Thanksgiving Pear Place Cards:

Step 1: Download, print, and cut out paper flags. Set aside.

    Since the pears are real food, I recommend using Wilton Gold Color Mist sold at Party City or Kmart in the baking aisle. Then you can still eat them after the event is over.
