Reinventing the Cork Place Setting | Hand-Crafted Holiday Decorations

These spectacular holiday place settings have us on a DIY high! 

Making something more "us" is why we love DIYing. Being able to take something small and give it a flair that will inspire someone else is seriously the best feeling in the world.

This holiday season, we really got into the crafting mood. We had wooden trees, farmhouse frames for cards, and a lot more that we didn't even get to share! But I think our favorite one has been a take on the good ol' cork place setting that we created while sitting in an Atwater's. It's a super easy craft that anyone can make their own. We went with a holiday look because, well, it's the holidays, which means we have lots of green, a little bit of holly, and Christmas-y words to share! 


Our cork settings ended up being used as table decor for a holiday party, but these can absolutely be edited for any season! All you need is some faux florals from a craft store (we got our from Michael's - again, not a sponsor), wine corks, a black marker, floral wire, and some hot glue.


They look so much more complicated then they are, so when your friends go "holy crap, where did you buy these" and you say "I didn't, I made them", revel in their shocked expression and soak up all their compliments! You deserve them! 

We don't have a full tutorial for you, but again, these are so easy to shape and adapt to be your own creation. If our little cork place settings inspired you to do something bigger and better, well, we did a great job (we're so humble, aren't we? :P). However, if you'd like a tutorial, shoot us an email! We love hearing from fellow crafters!

Besides photography, I have a few different hobbies. I really enjoy listening to audiobooks and occasionally lending my voice to some. My husband, Shawn, and I love playing D&D and discovering new interesting food spots! Oh and I'm obsessed with our dog, Pony.
