DIY Christmas table decorations - Menu cards and name tags with hand lettering
A Christmas feast is always something very special. But it’s not just when preparing the food that you make a special effort – but also when decorating the table. Suitably celebratory name and menu cards are a must. Here are a few simple tricks on how to transform your table into a beautiful Christmas centrepiece.
What you need
Sheet of paper in the desired look and feel, Leftover fabric, Brass fasteners, Punch pliers (or similar) and scissors, Printer
Print menu template and cross-hatch the back
The template is ideal for a DIN A6 postcard format.
You can do the same for the name cards. Either print out the names in a beautiful handlettering style using the computer and transfer them as in steps 2 to 4, or you can write the cards freehand. It looks nice when the name cards lie gently on the flatware. To do this, cut fabric into the desired size and tear them a little – this creates a beautifully fringed edge. Fold over the fabric and punch it with the name tag using a hole punch.
Attach the name cards
Now use the brass fasteners to attach the fabric and paper cards – and your creative name tags are ready!
