Use simple rosemary sprigs to mimic mini holiday greenery to make these simple rosemary wreath Christmas place cards for your Holiday table.
Is there anything better than fresh greenery during the Holidays? The look, the smell and the feeling that greenery invokes can be quite powerful. When I created our Christmas tablescape for Leon’s Hello Holiday guide a few years ago, I wanted to create the same feelings – in miniature – for each place setting. But rather than try to wrangle large greenery in such a small space, I decided to use Rosemary sprigs from the grocery store to make these rosemary wreath Christmas place cards.
How to Make Rosemary Wreath Christmas Place Cards
Like so many of our crafts, these Christmas wreath place cards are so simple to make and can be made for the whole table in less than half an hour.
- rosemary sprigs
- twine or jute
- light weight card stock
- a printer
- this PLACE CARD TEMPLATE
- a marker
1. Curve a sprig of rosemary around into a circle. You may have to snap the sprig a little to get it into a smooth circle, just be careful not to break it all the way through. I found it was easiest to sort of just push my fingernail into the stem where I wanted it to bend, without going all the way through. Sort of like scoring paper.
2. Tie with a twine or jute bow.
3. Repeat for as many place cards as you need.
4. Print and cut out enough place cards from THIS PLACE CARD TEMPLATE.
5. Write one guest’s name on each place card and place one on top of each rosemary wreath.
And there you have a little bit of natural greenery at each and every place setting!
