DIY Gilded Pomegranate Place Cards

So, I have a confession … I found an abandoned bag of 11 pomegranates in the Target parking lot. And I took them! I mean, they needed a home and I was willing to give it! Finder’s keepers defense? Anyhow, I decided to put them to good use on my Thanksgiving table, so I gave them a coat of paint and added cut-out calligraphy names and I’ve got the how-to right here below. DIY Pomegranate Place Cards for Thanksgiving // Legal Miss SunshineI like to use a couple different colors when I spray paint something in order to give it a bit more dimension, so I used copper and a dark brassy gold and sprayed the entire pomegranate in order to seal it in hopes of preserving it.

And then I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the calligraphy names, but if you’re awesome at calligraphy (which I am NOT) then by all means, whip out your calligraphy pen and write directly on the fruit!

After my Cricut cut out the names, I simply daubed a bit of glue of the back of each one and glued them in place. (BTW, I had tried vinyl and stickers in order to make the entire name stick to the pomegranate, but it just was not working and I gave up, but I like this look much better so win win!) DIY Pomegranate Place Cards for Thanksgiving // Legal Miss SunshineDIY Pomegranate Place Cards for Thanksgiving // Legal Miss Sunshine
