Homemade place cards and menu holders

You can make your own fantastic card holders for your place cards or menus with simple tools and materials. You can use four corks glued together in a square to put a card on the top. You can also use pine cones and small or thick pieces of wood as a base for your cards by sawing a notch into each one of them and then you can insert the cards. If the pine cones keep falling down you can stick them to a thin piece of wood with some glue.

You can use individually designed photo coasters as place cards on your table.

Alternatively, you can also make them as a gift for your loved ones, who can then take them home with them after the Christmas dinner.
