Creative DIY Place Cards for Weddings and Events

When I’m planning a big party I like to find ways for new and old guests to get to know each other which is why I set place cards to strategically introduce friends and stimulate fascinating conversations. With a little ingenuity and a stop at the crafts store, my Super Easy co-host and I constructed five stylish and creative DIY place cards for weddings and events. These are fun themes, easy DIY and super affordable whether you’re creating for 10 or 100 guests.

Creative DIY Place Cards for Weddings and Events

Check out the super easy directions below:

DIY leaf place cards

“The Golden Leaf” – take any leaf from your yard and make a design using a gold (or silver) metallic pen. It’s super easy!

“Wood You Dine With Me” – glue a wooden letter to represent your guests’ initials onto an old card or decorative piece of paper & clothes pin it to their napkins. The place cards are from party decor and the wooden letters are from Michaels craft store.

how to create place cards with stones

“Written In Stone” – find a dark stone with a smooth surface (a bag of smooth rocks is available at most craft stores for under $5) and write your guests’ names with a white chalk pen. Add an extra design element by wrapping twine, string, or yarn to the end of the stone. These creative DIY place cards can be used again by simply washing off the name and writing with a new guests’ name.

DIY creative place cards

“Paint Chipped Glass” – repurpose paint chip samples that you can get in the paint section at most hardware stores for free. Simply cut the paint chip into any shape that you’d like, write your guests names on the design, and attach it to a wine glass. We used mini clothes pins that we got a bag of at our local craft store for under $2.

diy party place cards with herbs

“So Very Rosemary” – write your guests name on a small piece of sturdy paper or a name tag, and punch a hole in the end of the paper (we used pre-made wooden name tags) then run a piece of rosemary through the hole for a fun organic design.

    Love all of these, but I think the stone is my favorite. It would make for a great keepsake!
