What quick and simple Christmas placecard idea do you have?

Category: Uncategorized

I need to make some quick table name place cards for Christmas. Any creative ideas?

There is one very easy idea that not only can make a creative name place card but they can then become a small gift for each named person to take home and put on the tree as an ornament. You buy a package of the really inexpensive blown glass Christmas ornaments in whatever colour combinations you like for the table. Then get white liquid craft or school glue, the inexpensive kind that comes in a plastic bottle with an applicator top that pulls open and pushes closed. Then buy a jar of a contrasting colour of glitter from your craft store. These are so simple to make that kids who can write their names can do them too. Get a sheet of paper to work over. A simple piece of computer or binder paper works fine. Just open the bottle of glue and begin writing a thin stream of letters across the ornament on one side. Make sure you keep the letters spaced apart with clear loops. It is just like writing but with the glue. After you have the name on the ornament then sprinkle the glitter over the glue writing. Make sure you cover it completely. Then set it aside to dry completely. You can whip up a bunch of these in a short amount of time. Then put one at each place with the name up. It is a different and unique way to make the setting personal and then they can keep the ornament with their name on it to hang on the Christmas tree. Have fun! Mama Nono
