Little Monsters Halloween Place Card Holders!

Thursday, October 18, 2012C Riches

There's soooo much you can do to decorate for Halloween using party printables! I was scratching my head to come up with a new idea for these sweet little monster dessert toppers, and then I remembered the similar place card holders I created for my kid's Barnyard Birthday Party this year! ;)

Materials Needed:

* Wooden lollipop sticks (flat-faced ones are better)
* Hot glue gun
* Sturdy cardboard pieces for base (I used the pieces of wooden rectangles you get on the back of canvases? Sorry, don't know the name..)
* Black acrylic paint
* Paintbrush
* Mini wooden pegs
* Black glitter (optional)

How to make your own Halloween Buffet Card Holder:

1) Paint the wooden pegs, lollipops sticks and rectangular wooden bases using the black acrylic paint and brush. let it dry.

2) Cut the little monster toppers, then hot glue them to each base. Hold in place for a few seconds.

3) Whilst the glue is still wet, hot glue the lollipop stick to the back of the topper. Hold in place for a few seconds until it sits upright. At this stage you can cover the glue on the base using black glitter for a neater finish.

4) Finally hot glue the mini wooden pegs to the top of the lollipop sticks. Use as place-card holders or to display buffet tags on your desert tables, or even as photo holders! Now, that would make a really cute Halloween gift or party favor, right?! :)
