Nontoxic yellow paint
Brown paper bag
Nontoxic craft glue
Colorful scrap paper


1. Soak the pinecones in water for 30 minutes and watch them tighten to look more like an ear of corn. Let dry overnight.
2. Brush the yellow paint on one side and let dry.
3. Cut small strips of the brown paper bag and tightly twist them to make the paper crinkle. Untwist enough so that you can glue the brown paper to the three unpainted sides of the cone.
4. Glue a small piece of cardboard to the bottom to help the pinecone stand up. Use the colorful scrap paper to write the names of each of your Thanksgiving guests and tape them to the cardboard. After Thanksgiving, you can recycle the place cards but keep the place card holders for next year.
