How To Make Christmas Table Place Cards
Have you got a Christmas lunch or dinner at home with lots of guests and would like them to sit at a certain place on the table? You could tell them directly but, wouldn't it be much more original and nice to do it with a simple craft? At OneHowTo we want to show you how to make Christmas table place cards so you can not only tell your guests where to sit, but will also make your table more Christmasy.
The first step to make your Christmas table place cards is to gather all of the objects you'll need to make them. Once you've done so, get the white cardboard or paper.
Next, fold the sheet in half.
Draw a snowman like the one you can see in the picture. Make sure the snowman's hat coincides with the folded part of the cardboard. Underline the drawing with a black felt pen or marker.
You can use your imagination and create other Christmas-themed drawings such as Santa Claus, Holly or a snowball. The trick is to make sure there's a wide enough surface at the folded part so it doesn't collapse once set up.
Cut both sides of the cardboard making sure you cut under and not over the line of your drawing. Remember not to cut the top part as this will be the part that keeps the front and back parts together.
The back part of your table place card should look like this.
The next step to make Christmas table place cards will be to get your black felt pen and draw the snowman's silhouette as it would be seen from behind.
Unfold the snowman as you can see in the picture. This way you'll be able to see what it looks like on both sides. Paint your snowman table place card with crayons or colored pencils.
Write the name of one of your guests on the bottom part of your table place card with a black felt pen and place it vertically on the dinner table. Now you have your own Christmas table place card! Make as many as guests are coming over for your Christmas celebration!
