I loved toy furniture when I was a kid. I would make beds, desks, TVs and everything else my dolls needed from whatever I could find, and it was a blast. Fast forward a couple of years (or decades, if you really want to be exact) and my love for tiny furniture hasn’t died. I would totally get a doll house if that weren’t so weird! But I’ve settled for the next best thing: fooling adults that toy chairs are actually place cards holders. And I’m gonna try to fool you, too because I know you want to pretend you’re at a grown-up dinner party, when secretly, you’re just playing.

Spray paint your chairs in the desired color and let dry. Depending on the paint you use, this might take a while, so be patient.

While you wait, cut paper circles and write the name of a guest on each one. Use the sharp pin to pierce the lower side of each circle, twice. Then pass a ball pin through both holes, as pictured above.

When your chairs are dry, use the sharp pin to pierce a hole in each one. If the plastic is harder to pierce, just heat up the pin before you proceed. Use the holes to place your ball pins and place cards.
