Christmas Dinner Place Markers
By Amy Hunt
These miniature bejeweled trees will dress your holiday table with a festive flair -- and provide a personalized spot for each of your guests.
Green acrylic paint
Time needed: About 1 Hour
Paper cone water cups (without wax coating; 1 for each guest; available at office supply stores) or construction paper
Clear or double-sided tape
White and gold paper
Pen or marker
1. Paint some of the cups green and let them dry (about 10 minutes). If you're using construction paper instead, roll it into cones, tape the seams, then trim the bottoms so they sit evenly.
2. Decorate the trees with garlands of glitter glue and glue on plastic gems for ornaments. Finally, glue together different-size stars cut from the white and gold paper, write a guest's name on each pair, then tape or glue the stars atop the trees.
