On the eighth day of Christmas my true friend gave to me…
…eight place cards so my guests will all know their seat.
If you are just joining our 12 Days of Christmas Event, go back to day one for all the yummy details!!!

Everything about a pomegranate speaks Christmas to me. Its jolly red color, the sweet tangy fruit, and the fact that it’s December and I can still find these beauties falling off the tree. Why not turn them into beautiful place cards?
Ornament hooks (from the dollar store)
UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel)
Embossing Gun Heat Tool
Glitter or Dimaond Dust
Hot Glue Gun
Paint the top half of the pomegranate with clear embossing ink. Pour UTEE over the ink to generously cover. Set with a heat tool. This gives the fruit a perpetually wet look, and makes the color pop!
Thin your Mod Podge with a few drops of water, and paint onto the lower half of the pomegranate. Sprinkle with glitter to give the pome a dipped-in-sugar appearance. I used Deco-Art’s Glamour Dust for this step because that’s what I had.
Secure an ornament hook to the top with hot glue. Now you are ready to attach your tag!
The best part about these treats? Your guests can still eat them! Nothing we did to them has harmed the inside in any way; all you need to do is slice open and serve.
And this whole project only cost me a buck (for the ornament hooks), everything else I had on hand. Love a thrifty project!
