DIY Shabby Chic Wood Vase Straw Holder, Wood Place Card Holders, Tree Slices For Rainbow Unicorn Party



Glitter Lambs is our other website in case if your wondering. That's why all the pictures have the Glitter Lambs© logo on it. So anyways, back to the DIY Shabby Chic stuff....

In the above picture is one of my husbands wooden vases he made. I wanted to give it a shabby chic look so I made my husband spray paint the wood in a blue Krylon color.

He gave it one coat and lightly misted the wooden vase to give it that shabby chic look. Just what I was going for!!! I love this color blue and it looked really good over the wood.

Here is what it looked like when it was finished. Looks good, huh? 

Here is the spray painted card holder and wood slice. The wood slice has a hole drilled in the top of it. Sorry that the picture was not more clear. 

Next we took a larger wood slice and spray painted this the same way.

We made sure to let the wood still peer through. After these dried I took them and used them in my Unicorn Party pictures.

Here is the shabby chic wooden vase and I added some colored straws down in it. I placed the Unicorn Punch card I made down into the wood place card holder. I used a unicorn rubber ducky to go with the theme and just sat all this on a wood slice. The rainbow colored ring you see is just a bracelet that was bought at the dollar store. You could easily make something similar by just taking a round circular bracelet and wrapping some colored yarn around it. 

 I made some blue punch and floated the unicorn rubber duckies in it and the mason jars were turned into drinking glasses. I just used some light pastel colored cupcake liners and turned them upside down over the mason jar and twisted the lid on. I then poked a hole through the top using a pen and then added the colored straw down in it. The cupcake liners didn't fit real well over the mason jar and I had to smooth them out the best I could before I twisted the lid on. 


I used the wood slice with the drilled hole in it and hung it on the wooden vase. I used a black sharpie marker and wrote the words "UNICORN PUNCH" on it. I made the unicorn look like he was a horse and was pulling the straw filled wood vase just to be funny. 


Here is the rubber ducky unicorn's floating in the punch. Nice day for a swim!

Rustic Tree Branch Wooden Food Buffet Card Holders

We offer these handmade wood card holders in our Etsy shop. I made a Mexican food buffet and added speedy gonzales on the cards. You can see him above holding a piece of cheese and the other two was peppers and chips.

If you want to buy these then go to our listing in our Etsy.

In the picture above we do sell the stumps that the card holder is sitting on too. 


 I sat the bowls of chips, peppers and cheese on the stumps as you can see from the picture. These wood products would go well with any food buffet theme that you want to do. They will work for weddings, birthdays, anniversary's, and the list goes on. Use the stumps to set little decorative items or cupcakes on. They make perfect little stands to prop anything on.

Here is a close up of the food card holder. 

 These rustic card holders will make your event look amazing! If you want some just head over to our shop and buy them up! We have tons of them!!!

Here is a close up of the other kind of card holders that we offer. These are pine and are smaller but very cute! If you want to buy these in our shop here is the link. 


A closer shot of the pine card holders. These little card holders make everything a lot easier and just really makes for a nice presentation. Can you see my tiny plastic hamburgers on the tall piece of wood. Are they not the cutest???!!! I thought so! I even added a few of them around the cheese bowl. 

 Here is the card holders with all three of them. I should have made my speedy gonzales smaller and moved him up so the card would have fit better. I was not really thinking about it when I printed these off. O well, they still look so CUTE!!! Always allow for some room on your card so that it will not cut off any of your pictures or words.

 Here are the stumps that we offer that you can set stuff on. I added the bowls of food that I had on them. Depending on the theme that you have going on you can fill small bowls of sprinkles, candy, chocolate bars, etc and just sit them right on top of the small stump. These are perfect for your food buffets. I love them!!! If your doing a rustic wedding you can try doing smores and just fill the bowls with marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate all separated into big bowls.
You could also try sitting mason jars on top of the tree stumps and filling them with something that goes with you event.

 So do you want some of our AWESOME wood supplies for your next event? Well, just go to our Etsy Shop and shop around to see what you can find! If you need a certain amount or need something custom please just message us and ask. We will see if we can do it for you. Thanks!!!



12 Rustic Tree Branch Wooden Food Label Card Holders For Candy Buffet Or Birthday Party: Pepe Le Pew, Bubblegum, Pixie Stixs, Cotton Candy, Wax Bottle Drinks, Wafers

12 rustic place card holders, tree card holders, place holders, rustic wedding decor, country wedding, tree stump, candy buffet card holders


I took some pictures of our tree branch wood place card holders and use Pepe Le Pew as the star. I just made up some cute little cards and printed them out. I should have made my skunk smaller and allowed room for the card to sit down in it. I forgot to pay attention to that when I was making and printing them out. I added pixie stixs to one of our wood vases and then sat that on top of a wood slice. 

We do have a listing available in our Etsy shop for you to buy 12 rustic place card holders made from tree limbs.  If you need more or less then just message us and tell how many you need. 

***********Some may be rough bark and others may be smooth bark based on what we have on hand at the time of your order. Tree types will vary between orders.******************************

The approximate diameters of the holders will range from 1.75" - 2.25" and are approx 1.5" tall. The depth of the groove is approx 1/2" deep, just allow enough room for the card to set in without covering any of your design or writing. 
Here is the Cotton Candy section. You can see that I piled up some fake plastic donuts on top of a standing tree branch in the back. 

 I figured out that my cotton candy didn't like the sun very well. This stuff was shrinking up to nothing by the time I got done taking pictures.

 Here is some pixie stixs that I added to one of our desk organizers. I thought it would work perfect for this because of all of the little holes that it has. I used a tall glass vase and added some fake donuts to that and filled it to the top. And I added a small stack of tiny wood slices next to it that we also sell in our store.

I don't know about you but I always loved those little wax bottle drinks when I was a kid. I added some of those to a glass mason jar. 

These place card holders are different than the ones above and are also for sale in our store. You can get 24 of them at this listing here. BUY NOW. If you need more or less just message us in our etsy shop and we will see what we can do for you. We also sell the the wood that the bubblegum jar and bowl of wafers is sitting on. We have so many different wood items to choose from in our store.
