Table decoration for a wedding

Hand drawn beach pebbles as table place cards

Why not give a wedding celebration a personal touch by making some of the table decorations yourself? It doesn’t have to cost much, and even small decor projects can look truly special. It’s all about having fun and enjoying the mounting excitement in the run-up to the big day. Attractive pebbles make fabulous table decorations or table place cards when decorated with the names of the guests or a sentiment. White pebbles look particularly effective. You can buy them in art-and-craft stores – but it’s much more satisfying to collect your own when you’re taking a stroll along the beach, because you can gaze out to sea every now and then and let your cares float away as you search for the palest, smoothest pebbles you can find! edding gloss paint markers are ideal for writing on pebbles; their opaque, paint-like ink looks beautiful on both light and dark surfaces and there’s a wide range of colours to choose from, including quite a few brilliant metallic shades.

Materials needed:
  • edding 751 gloss paint marker or edding 753 gloss paint marker with calligraphy nib, e.g. in gold or other metallic colour.
  • Light or dark-coloured pebbles or small stones, the smoothest you can find
  • Pencil (optional)
Step-by-step instructions
  1. Lightly sketch out the names or wording on the pebble in pencil
  2. To activate the paint marker: Shake the marker firmly with the cap on. Place the nib on some scrap paper and slowly pump it up and down a few times until ink flows into the nib. Try out the marker first with a few test strokes.

  3. Go over the pencil lines with the gloss paint marker and accentuate the letters as you wish.
  4. For really expressive writing, we recommend the edding 753 gloss paint marker which has a calligraphy nib.
