INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Gather medium-sized acorns with loops for hanging. (I used two per place card plus made extra for a centerpiece.) (TIP: if you can't find any medium sized acorns with a loop, use real ones and hot glue them on.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Gather 4" wood slices. (As many as needed for your guests.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Using a medium flat brush, paint the wood slices with Neutral Grey, leaving the raw edges unpainted. Allow to dry. Lightly sand, if needed. Apply a second coat for even coverage. Allow to dry.

  4. Using the provided pattern for font and shapes, draw on the name of each guest and some image decoration along the bottom half of the round with a white colored pencil. Paint the lines with Cool White, using a liner brush. Allow to dry.
