Adding rustic and natural elements to a table setting is something that I love. Even though I’m not necessarily an “outdoor girl”, bringing in elements of nature into my home is something I find comforting and calming. So, I created these very simple rustic place card holders that you could use for your next party. This look will work well for a party for adults, or for a fairy or woodland party for kids. It’s a very versatile look that you can alter to fit your event.
1. After you’ve collected everything you need (and you most likely have everything you need in your house/yard), take your three 4″ sticks and arrange them in a design that would give you two sticks side by side and one sticking out towards the back. The top of all the sticks need to be together. It may take a little finagling, but you’ll get it.
2. If you prefer, you can add some hot glue to the top pieces to secure them a bit more. I didn’t use any for mine, however, and they’re holding together just fine. Wrap your twine or string around the top of the sticks until they feel secure.
3. Next, you’ll need to add the “shelf” that your place card will sit upon. Again, you can choose to use a bit of hot glue here. Then, secure more tightly by adding twine or string.
4. Add your place card, and you’re done!
