DIY :: Floral Pin Card Holders

January 27th, 2012

We thought we’d kick off the weekend with a project that is so simple, I can’t believe we hadn’t thought of it before. See that fabulous gold menu card holder on our all-white  buffet? If you hadn’t already guessed it, it’s actually made of a dolled up florist’s pin frog! Usually used to keep flowers perked upright in a vase, we realized that with a few minor tweaks, these spiky disks would make the perfect place card or menu card holders. Keep reading for the instructions, because this is one DIY you can’t afford not to do!

  1. Spray pin frogs generously with gold spray paint (or any colored spray paint), and cover in glitter before paint dries.
  2. Allow to dry completely, and insert place cards or menu cards.

    Never heard of a pin frog in my life!!! Fabulous idea though – will have to find out what they’re called in France!

    Bon week-end 🙂

  2. this is such a great idea, but where do you find pin frogs?

      From any floral supply shop. They are sometimes called floral pins, sometimes floral frogs, sometimes pin frogs. 🙂 Made to secure flowers in the bottom of a vase.

  3. My grandmother introduced me to pin frogs, but never thought of using them this way. Just love all your DIY’s! ~ Ashley
