DIY Wire Place Card Holders


Lately, I've been trying to flex my creative muscles more and I'm truly loving it.  Every easter my family have a big meal to celebrate Easter and every year I try to come up with different ways to dress the table. This year I've found a cute and simple way to add interest to the table. Now don't get me wrong, my immediate family is small and after my 24 years of life I know their names. However, I just think place cards make any event more personal. It gives the impression that everything is carefully planned and thought out.  

These wire place card holders can be used for dinner parties, craft parties, weddings, any thing you want. They were surprisingly easy to make. Getting the right shape was my biggest challenge but once in the flow of it, its really enjoyable and simple to master. 







I used cutting pliers purely because I couldn't get my hands on a pair of 3 in 1 jewellery pliers. Jewellery allow you to bend, cut and form the object all in one handy tool. 

How to 

1. Think about the design you want and the way it curves. I did a quick sketch of the wording so I could visualise 
2. Create the back support.
3. Form the wording/shape. 

The beauty of this is that you can do anything you want with it. Change the colour, shape wording and you have a quick and easy way to personalise any event your hosting. 





Give it a try! 
Happy Easter!
