DIY Metal Place Cards

by Angela on December 8, 2012

I have some good news (at least I’m excited)!  My house is fully decorated.  That means I will have pictures up soon, but until the dreary days go away, I a few other things to share.

As most of you know, I tend to be a little impatient when I get an idea.  This little project was no exception.  I realize there are still a few weeks until I need to prepare the table for our Christmas dinner, but what can I say?  I got a jump start! ;)

These place cards are so easy and will add a personal element to your table.

Here’s how I made them:

I bought a roll of metal from the craft store, you can find it either in the jewelry or metal section.  (It’s thin enough to cut with scissors.) I made a template out of paper so each one was uniform and cut them all out. Then I used my metal stamps to add individual names.  To make the letters stand out more I went over them with a Sharpie and wiped the excess off with a piece of steel wool.

It took about half an hour to make six place cards.

I love how the metal holds it’s shape!

Where did you get the “placemats” that are basket like. I love those!

Beth, I got them at World Market a while ago on clearance. I don’t think they carry the same ones, but they might have something similar.
