Decorate to Celebrate Winter Wedding Challenge: Design Team Project

It is time for a new challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate.  This time, the challenge is to make a decoration for a Winter Wedding.  Be sure to stop by and check out all of the projects by the design team and enter your own project into the challenge here: http://decoratetocelebrate.blogspot.com/.

For my project, I decided to make some table place settings.  I had gathered some pinecones from behind my house a while ago and wasn't sure what I was going to do for them.  When this challenge came up, I knew they would be perfect for the occassion.  This is what I came up with.

To begin with, I started out by taking some of the pinecones and some fake snow spray that I purchased at Hobby Lobby. 
 I covered the pinecones with the snow spray and let them dry.
 Once they were dry, I used the Cricut to cut the labels for them.  I used the Storybook Cartridge to cut a white marquee shape and a smaller blue marquee shape.  I then used the Batman Cartridge to cut the font for the labels using white vinyl.  I then used a small dot of hot glue to attach these to the top of the pinecones.
 I think these would look great on the tables at a Winter Wedding.  You could also do names on them and use them at the actual seats for each person if you wanted.
