Gold Glitter Holiday Place Cards For Your Dinner Table

3 Materials
1 Hour
Every hostess wants a gorgeous dinner table to welcome their guests. We also love adding personal touches to show our guests how much we care.

Gold Glitter place card holders with monogram place cards add a personal touch to your table setting.
I'm going to show you how I made these gold glitter place card holders and how I set this beautiful holiday dinner table.
These glitter balls place cards are easy to make with just a few supplies.

Supplies needed:

  • Clear glass ball ornament place card holders
  • Gold Glitter
  • Paint Brush
  • Mod Podge
  • Cardstock for names
  • Paintbrush
Remove the card holder at the top of the glass ball.

Using a paintbrush, apply the Mod Podge on the ball, but don't cover the bottom. You want a fairly thick coat so the glitter will stick easily.
I found that the easiest way to keep the mess to a minimum is to put the glitter in a small ball, and roll the ball in it. If there are any bare spots, dab a little Mod Podge on it, and add more glitter.
Set all of the glittered balls aside so they can dry. You may decide that you want an extra coat.

You could also put the glitter on the inside of the ball, but I really like the shine and texture when it's on the outside.
After the balls are dry, put the top back on them.

Cut out circles or ovals to add names or monograms. Old photos would be really fun too.

I used the Cricut Maker to cut out an oval from ivory card stock, and a scalloped oval from gold card stock. The monograms were also done with the Maker Machine.
This gorgeous table setting is beautiful and won't break the bank. Would you believe that some of the supplies came from the Dollar Store?

The table is set with:

  • Ivory table cloth with small gold accents
  • Gold plastic chargers for plates
  • Smaller white plates with gold trim
  • Gold plastic eating utensils
  • Gold cloth napkin
  • Gold bling napkin rings
  • Wired greenery with burgundy berries and gold pine cones
  • Gold Christmas Balls
  • Off White ceramic candle holders with gold dots
  • Dark Green Candle
This project is super easy. When the dinner is over, you can use them to hold photos or Christmas Cards.

    How do you keep the ornament placecards upright? Don't they roll around?

    I was wondering if you used something on the bottom of the ornament so that it doesn't roll.
