Not only do the place cards add red, white, and blue flair to the table, they are also something guests can take home with them. And, of course, by simply changing the color scheme, these place cards would be perfect for any holiday or occasion.
To make one of the place cards, I used the following supplies:
- Flowers (I was sent the Hair Bow Company's new Flower Craft Pack to use for this project.)
- Small Wooden Plaque
- Paint Brush
- Washi Tape
- Permanent Marker or Paint Pen
- Hot Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
- Clear Sealant
- 220 Grit Sandpaper
The first step of the place card making process was painting my wooden plaque.
I wanted the edges of my plaque to pop, so once the paint was dry, I used 220 grit sandpaper to distress the edges. (Of course, you can always skip this step if you don't like the distressed look.)
Next, I used Krylon's matte finish spray paint to seal the plaque. (This step isn't mandatory, but a clear coat over acrylic or chalk paint keeps stray marks and scuffs from messing up your paint finish.)
Fourth of July Flower Craft Pack from The Hair Bow Company had a lot of flowers--and even some stars--to choose from, making it perfect for creating a whole table full of place cards.)
Isn’t the place card so pretty?
