Quick! Guests are arriving in an hour and you’re missing something on the table – but what?!  Place cards!  With some card stock, paint, and a little imagination you can give a personalized touch to complete any table.  These DIY Place Cards complete a full series of DIY ideas we call Company’s Coming.

 

SUPPLIES
• Card Stock or Craft Paper
• Paint Brush
Fusion Metallic Paint (we used Vintage Gold)
• Felt Pen

 

HOW TO PAINT PLACE CARDS

STEP 1
Cut your card stock  into 6″ x 4″ strips.  You’ll fold each strip in half at the 3″ mark to create tented cards that are 3″ x 4″.

With some card stock, Fusion Mineral Paint, and a little imagination you can create a personalized touch to complete any table theme or look.

 

STEP 2
Using your favourite shade of Fusion Mineral Paint, or a signature Metallic like Vintage Gold, brush the outside of your cards (and even the inside if you want).

 

STEP 3
Once they’re dry – which shouldn’t take too long on such small cards – write the name of each guest and voila!  A customized place setting!

OTHER USES FOR PLACE CARDS

Want a more casual dining situation?  Use your painted place cards to indicate dishes on a buffet, or as part of a desert bar.  You could even use them as customized gift tags come gifting season (we also have other ideas for that too!)
