DIY Cranberry Wreath Place Cards

DIY Cranberry Wreath Place Cards

Merry and bright are what I call these cranberry wreath place cards.

These super fast and easy little place cards are a great addition to a festive holiday table.

I love a place card for any gathering as I think it helps ease any social anxiety that friends or family might have when meeting new people. I

consider who should sit next to whom and have fun thinking about how a little cluster might hit it right off.

To make your own cranberry wreath place cards, simple gather a few materials and set about 30 minutes aside to make a dozen or so place card wreaths.

Here's how you make your own cranberry wreath place cards

Start by threading your needle and stringing approximately 10 fresh cranberries onto your thread. 

Tie the wreath off in a square knot.

Now, cut your ribbon and glue it around the knot of your wreath.

Write names and add them to your ribbon.

Store your cranberry wreaths in the refrigerator for up to 2 days before your feast.
