Celebrations: tart tin place cards


I have a set of vintage tart tins that I haven’t used in years. When you don’t have time to bake, the next best thing is to use your tart tins for place cards.


Here they are in the original box. My mom passed them down to me. She still makes pies and cakes and other goodies but I don’t remember her ever making little tartlets. But based on the condition of the box, it looks like they were well used. 


The little tart tins come in a variety of shapes. Just looking at them makes me want to make some berry tarts. 


In the meantime, these little tins will be used for my holiday place cards. 


I used craft glue to hold down the moss. That way, when I’m done, a good soaking will clean up the tins. I added a few decorative floral berries, a sprig of evergreen and simple black and white place card.


Sweet little tart tin place cards – but not nearly as sweet as homemade berry tarts.

Upcycling: snow globe place cards

I love making snow globes. The funny thing is I’ve never actually made one with snow or water.

Faux snow globes are fun to make and a great use of small jars. With several small jars you could make a set of place cards for next dinner party or brunch.

To make a faux snow globe, you’ll need:
  • Small jars
  • Oasis or floral styrofoam
  • Moss
  • Small silk flowers
  • Paper
  • Tacky glue
  1. Glue a small piece of oasis to the inside of your jar top.
  2. Add a little moss on top of the oasis and glue down.
  3. Insert small silk flowers or greenery into the oasis.
  4. I added a butterfly that I printed out and trimmed and of course, the guest’s name.
  5. Carefully, place your jar onto the lid and screw into place.
This project would be ideal if you had a lot of baby food jars.

Etceteras: holiday house place cards

With the hustle and bustle of shopping, card making, gift wrapping and decorating, it’s easy to forget about your holiday table. For a sit down holiday meal, you can dress up your table with place cards.

To make a snowy house place card, you will need:

  • Cardboard or an existing small box
  • Glue
  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Kosher or coarse salt
  1. Make a small box out of cardboard and tape the inside of the box.
  2. Make an A-frame roof out of corrugated cardboard and glue onto the top of the box. Cut out windows, and doors as desired.
  3. Once you’re happy with your house, pour kosher or coarse salt into a plate.
  4. Apply glue all around the house and press the house into the salt one side at a time. You may need to apply a little more glue and fill in the bare areas. Set aside to dry.
  5. Add a name tag to each house.
If you’re feeling especially ambitious, create houses in a variety of sizes and make a small village centerpiece.

Etceteras: fall place cards


Even though it’s not even Halloween yet, it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving and other fall events. If you’re having the Thanksgiving meal at your house, you may want to use place cards at your table.

These place cards were made with materials that I had on hand.

  • Card stock
  • Fabric (coffee stained muslin left over from my fall mobile project)
  • Martha Steward Ribbon style tags
  • Leaves (from the garden)
  • Glue
Fold your card stock into a small tent card. Cut your fabric so it’s a little larger than one side of the tent card. Glue on your fabric using fabric glue or Mod Podge. Trim the fabric edges or you can fringe them.

To fringe fabric, use a needle and pull out one thread at a time.


 Add your embellishments and guest’s names.
If you don’t plan on using place cards, these cards can be used as “Thanksgiving” cards. Simply replace the guest name with something that you’re thankful for and scatter them around the table.



Place cards…done. One thing checked off my Thanksgiving to-do list.
