DIY Tutorial: Mini Disco Ball Place Cards

Every now and then, I think people love to see a quirky, maybe even out of place detail, used in an interesting way. These are the conversation starters and the little things that make your event memorable. So when the disco ball started making its way into tropical destinations, I just couldn’t get enough of the boho beach vibes mixed with something usually saved for the club or ballroom. I decided to stick with mini versions and turn them into a super fun place card and favor all in one. These could also easily be made in a larger version as a vase or pot if you are looking for a little more bling to add to your table! – Lauren

Step 1: Remove the ornament top, this will be the bottom

Step 2: Flip over and begin to remove the top mirror pieces with your knife, stopping once you have a circle that is about 1″ in diameter

Step 3: Use the knife to cut into the styrofoam around the circle, pop that out and dig into the foam with the awl to create a bowl for your plant.

Step 4: Plant your succulent or place your air plants inside and you’re done!

So make sure to pick lightweight plants that aren’t too tall. Finish your table design by adding some candles to the table. The disco balls will catch the light and add a fun light show on the table. Plus with all this glitz at each place setting, you won’t want much competing with them! Photo Credits: Lauren Saylor for Oh So Beautiful Paper

  1. I love this idea but is there anywhere else to buy the disco ball ornaments? I won’t support Hobby Lobby…
