CELEBRATIONS: Cork & Feather Place Cards

Cork & Feather Place Cards - homework  (3)The entertaining season is upon us friends! Time to spruce up the house and get ahead of the curve.



Cork & Feather Place Cards - homework  (1)I have a long way to go to get the house guest-ready but I’ll slowly get there. And since I’m avoiding cleaning up the clutter, I made these little place cards.


Cork & Feather Place Cards - homework  (2)I’ve been wanting to use these little corks for the longest time. Plus, I’m still loving the feathers that I bought last season. Why not put the two together to create some fall place cards.


Cork & Feather Place Cards - homework  (5)I’m going to keep it simple this season. Probably a few natural elements like a simple wheat stalk and a bowl full of apples.


Cork & Feather Place Cards - homework  (6)To make these little cork place cards, simple make a little hole in the top of the cork. Use a paperclip or something similar. Poke your feather into the hole. Slice a small part of the cork with a craft knife and insert the name card. I made mine in Word and hand cut them.


Cork & Feather Place Cards - homework  (8)Add a little bit of ribbon or twine. I used some strips of gold tulle that I had handy.


Cork & Feather Place Cards - homework  (7)That’s it – a simple place setting. Once the holidays roll around, I can swap out the feather for a little bottle brush tree.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

    1. Hi Vel, I emailed my response to you but in case anyone else is interested, I bought the corks from Michaels (they have online ordering now). I'm pretty sure you could find them at any big hobby/craft store. Thanks.

    1. Thanks Leslie - the font I used is called Southern Aire. I can't remember where I got the font but I only download free fonts and it's available on most of the free font sites. I like Dafont alot.
