How to Make Rosemary Wreath Christmas Place Cards

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.

Instructions

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.

    I would love to know the name of the font used for the names. I am going to try these for my son’s rehearsal dinner. Thank you, I love the look. Thank you for posting.
