DIY Place Card Holder or Gift Sign; Frame and Ribbon

I am not a very crafty person.  I like to think that I am and trust me I WISH I was, but sadly I have to face the fact that I am indeed un-crafty.   I need simple and easy “do it yourself” crafts that are fool proof so even an un-crafty person, like myself, can create a cool DIY craft without messing it up. I am thankful for Valley and Co. Weddings and Pocketful of Dreams who have two similar DIY projects with step by step instructions to make an awesome place card holder or gift table sign that are not only easy but are great additions to any wedding!

To make this yourself you will need:

Ribbon
Push pins (or a glue gun)
Scissors
Measuring Tape
Pencil
Empty Frame

Most of these tools you have in your house already…that’s why I love these projects!

First measure and cut your ribbon to the length of the frame.  Also measure how far apart you want each of these and mark it on the back of the frame. Depending on whether you want this to be used as a place card holder or a gift sign will determine how far apart to place the ribbon.

Then glue or pin each piece of ribbon to the back.  Each site suggests using different colors and even textures of ribbon.  Do this all the way across the frame .

For a place card holder just slide the tent cards over the ribbon and you’re done.  Easy right?

For the gift card table you can hang a cute banner and it makes a perfect backdrop for any table at your wedding!

Happy Planning!
