DIY: Gold Leaf + Twine + Tags = Easy Holiday Place Settings That Shimmer!

Happy Holidays lovelies!

It’s been so long since I’ve been back here to write a DIY and am excited to share this pretty place setting for all your upcoming holiday parties (or winter wedding)! Easy, fresh, and a little bit of shine… what every table needs!


  • Variety of winter greens, berries and small flowers
  • Fabric tags
  • Glue pen
  • Pen or marker
  • Gold leaf
  • Twine
  • Gold trim

Step 1:

Create small, boutonnière-like bunches using a combination of winter greens. I started with a base of winter staples (such as boxwood pine or noble fir) and added in berries or small flowers. Bundle with twine and set aside.

Step 2:

Use a marker or pen to write the name or initial of your guest on the fabric tag.

Step 3:

Go over the edges of the tag (or wherever you want to see gold!) with the glue pen — you will need to layer the glue a few times, as the fabric tends to soak up some of the glue on the first layer.

Step 4:

Once the glue dries tacky, place gold leaf on the tag and peel off. Yay!

Step 5:

Tie the tag with gold trim, attach to your green bundles and serve it up on a pretty plate!

So fun and festive! Will you be adding these to your holiday table? 🙂
