Step 1: Fill in the names of your guests on the cards.

Step 2: Arrange the cards in alphabetical order.

Step 3: Depending on your guest count, figure out the appropriate number of cards to fit on each twine row, factoring in the size of your frame and the size of your party.

Step 4: Tie a knot to the edge of one tack and push it in towards the top of the frame. Hold down the tack and measure across the frame to where the second tack will be. Leave 2 inches of room for the second tack’s knot.

Step 5: Depending on how many cards will fit per row, thread the clothespins onto the twine.

Step 6: Tie the second knot onto the other tack, pull the twine taut and press into the frame, making sure the twine is straight and parallel to the top of the frame.

Step 7: Continue steps 4-6 until you’ve completed the number of rows you’ll need.

March is National Craft Month! We’ll cover how to make bridal shower hors d’oeuvre flags in this first post for our Do It Yourself Wedding Series.

No bridal shower is complete without delectable hors d’oeuvres. If you’re helping the bride host the bridal shower, why not dress up the perfect finger food with some party flair? There’s a good chance she’s overwhelmed with details, so show her how you care by creatively adding a custom touch to the presentation.

Supplies needed:

  1. Stickers
  2. Toothpicks
  3. Your fun finger food of choice

Step 1: Place one sticker sticky side up on a clean surface.

Step 2: Place the toothpick on the adhesive side of the sticker. (Placement is up to you — if you want it to look like a flag, place the toothpick on either end of the sticker).

Step 3: Make a toothpick sandwich! Apply the second sticker onto the first sticker (adhesive sides together), making sure the sides are aligned.

Place each finished toothpick adornment on the appetizers, preferably on a matching plate. You’re done!
