6 Adorable Place Cards You Can Make in 5 Minutes or Less
Got 5 minutes? That's all you need to make these cute, simple place cards for your next holiday party.
Option 1: Glitz + Glitter
The secret ingredient of these festive place cards? Double-sided tape. Fold and cut cardstock, then stick on tape in a geometric shape. Over a paper plate or glitter tray, sprinkle superfine glitter over the tape until completely coated. Tap to remove excess glitter, then write on each guest's name in silver permanent marker or paint pen.
Option 2: Sweet Geometry
This sweet idea doubles as place card and favor. Double a strip of gold washi tape around a stick of angular, old-fashioned rock candy, then use scissors to cut the ends like a pennant banner. Use a black permanent marker to personalize each place card.
Option 3: Animal Instincts
Borrow spray-painted plastic animals from winter scenes (or paint your own) to serve as an adorable place card stand. A tiny plastic reindeer's antlers make the ideal perch for a circle-punch name card dressed with gold typewriter-style stickers. Use a gold permanent marker to add a gold border, and tie on red-and-white baker's twine for a cute accent.
Option 4: Between the Tines
To create this easiest-ever place card, cut two different colors of card stock with a hexagon paper punch (or, experiment with the shape of your choice.) Write on each guest's name using a silver permanent marker and layer between fork tines.
Option 5: All Tied Up
To start this adorable presentation, fold a cloth napkin into a loose envelope shape. Tuck silverware inside and tie up with a piece of red-and-white baker's twine. Add a craft paper gift tag featuring each guest's name. We used a white paint marker to create a chalkboard look without the mess.
Option 6: Office Party
Turn office supplies and home decor extras into chic table accents this season. Stand oversized, gold bulldog clips atop each plate. Then, write each guest's name onto a paint chip with a metallic paint marker and slide between the wire closures. Bonus points if the paint chip corresponds with your table's color scheme!
