How Sweet It Is! DIY Placecards For A Christmas Wedding

Photo and concept courtesy of Martha Stewart.

Planning a Christmas wedding? Martha Stewart and her staff came up with DIY place cards that resemble holiday mints.  What a sweet idea for a Christmas wedding! These are so easy even I can make them!

What do you need? Cardstock in a variety of pinks and reds, a hole punch and scissors, 1 1/2" wide ribbons in a variety of patterns in reds and pins, and a pen with black ink.

Cut out 3" ovals using cardstock in a variety of pinks and reds.  Use your hole punch to punch holes at each end of the oval.  Neatly write the names of your guests using black ink.  Use 6" long x1 1/2" wide ribbon scraps in coordinating colors to decorate each place card.  Thread them through each hole from one end to the other. Cut a notch in the ribbon ends.  The slight bowing of the card and the ribbon behind it will let the place card stand up on it's own.  Easy to make, and easy on the eyes! These are place cards any bride would be proud of.
