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?

Supplies:

  • Pomegranates
  • Ornament hooks (from the dollar store)
  • UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel)
  • Embossing ink
  • Embossing Gun Heat Tool
  • Paintbrush
  • Mod Podge
  • 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!

    I've never seen a pomegranate on a tree…but they are in my stores right now, so it is time to enjoy them. This is a great idea!

    This is so creative! I am jealous that you have them on a tree. Here in MN we can only hope that we get pomegranates once in awhile in our grocery stores!

  6. Emily says

    @Carol – That makes me laugh, because who would of thought that anybody could possibly be jealous of the agriculture here?! We may not be able to grow much in this barren sand, but Las Vegas seems to be okay for pomegranate trees!
