PINE CONES CHRISTMAS TABLE PLACEHOLDERS (DIY)

pinecones placeholders diy christmas francinesplaceblog

An easy and quick way to decorate your Christmas table. // Un modo facile e veloce
per decorare la vostra tavola Natalizia.

There's no doubt that Christmas time means not only loads of food and sweets (yay!),
but also tons of decorations. Decorations everywhere and anyway.
Decorations on the doors, on the walls, on the trees and, yes, on your pets the tables.
I'm not a fanatic of decorations overload, but I love decorating the tree and give some
Christmas touch to the house, because Christmas atmosphere is just too beautiful
and a cozy night on the couch, watching a movie, drinking hot cocoa with the
lights of the Christmas tree in the background is pure perfection.
To me, Christmas tree and a beautiful table are the fundamental must-have on winter holidays.
So, for those like me who opt for simplicity but don't want to renounce a decorated table
on Christmas days, here a quick (very quick) and no cost way to give your table
the Christmas/Winter/holiday touch you were looking for on Pinterest (I know you were!).
Perfect also for those who don't have time enough to decorate: this will take you 2 minutes!
No excuses, read below how to.

 Non c'è dubbio che il periodo natalizio sia fatto non solo da cibo e dolci (yee!), ma anche
da tonnellate di decorazioni. Decorazioni ovunque e comunque.
Decorazioni sulle porte, sui muri, sugli alberi e sì, sui vostri animali sulle vostre tavole.
Non sono una fanatica di decorazioni a non finire, ma mi piace decorare l'albero e dare
qualche tocco natalizio alla casa, perché l'atmosfera natalizia è semplicemente troppo bella,
e una serata sul divano, guardando un film, bevendo cioccolata calda con le luci
dell'albero sullo sfondo è pura perfezione.
Per me, i must-have irrinunciabili delle vacanze invernali sono l'albero ed una bella tavola.
Così, per chi come me ama la semplicità ma non vuole rinunciare ad una tavola decorata
durante le festività, ecco qui un modo veloce (davvero veloce) e a costo zero per dare
alla vostra tavola il tocco natalizio/invernale/festivo che tanto cercavate su Pinterest
(so che lo stavate facendo!).
Perfetto anche per chi non ha abbastanza tempo per decorare: vi ruberà 2 minuti!
Niente scuse, leggete sotto.

You need // Vi occorre:

- Pine cones (as much as you want or as your guests number). // Pigne (quante ne volete o
tante quanti saranno i vostri ospiti).
- Snow spray and glitters. You can use also silver or golden paint, or whatever you want. Be creative!
// Neve spray e glitter. Potete usare anche vernice argento o oro, o qualsiasi cosa vogliate.
Siate creative!
- Paper, pen, scissors. // Carta, penna, forbici.

(Even for crying wallets! // Anche per portafogli che piangono!)


How to // Come procedere:

1)
Spray the pine cones (better outside or with something like carton to cover your table) with
the snow spray, then add the glitters. // Spruzzate le pigne con la neve spray (meglio se
all'aperto o con qualcosa per coprire il vostro piano), poi aggiungete i glitter.


2)
Cut as much little paper rectangles as your guests number. // Tagliate tanti rettangolini
di carta quanti sono gli ospiti.


3)
Write all the names. // Scrivete tutti i nomi.


4)
Insert each name in a pine cone (yeah, it sounds weird but you will understand how easy it is while
doing it). // Infilate ogni nome in una pigna (sì, suona strano, ma capirete quanto è semplice
mentre lo farete).


5)
Voilà! Your table looks so Christmas and if you decorated more pine cones than you needed, you
 can use the remainings to decorate your house. 2 DIYs in 1! // Voilà! La vostra tavola ora
sembra proprio natalizia e, se per caso avete decorato più pigne del necessario, potete
usare le rimanenti per decorare casa! 2 fai da te in 1!

  1. I use some as decoration, without the place cards, on my main table. They are so pretty and a DIY you can easily do with a toddler. My daughter loves collecting stuff.
