Step-By-Step Instructions For DIY Christmas Place Card Holders

Using card stock, print out both sheets. Using small, sharp scissors, cut out all six trees and two stars. Fold all of the tree shapes in half with the pattern inside.

Folding Christmas Trees In Half For Place Cards

Use a hard flat tool to crease the trees halves. This helps them stay folded well. Apply glue to the outside half of one of the trees.

Applying glue to folded Christmas tree

Choose another tree half in the contrasting pattern. Glue it to the first half, blank sides together carefully lining up the edges. Press down and allow a bit of time for the glue to dry.

Gluing the opposite side of the tree

Glue each of the tree halves together, one on top of the next to get a layered 3D tree shape. Continue until you’re out of tree halves (Glue the last two halves together).

Next, if desired, write a name or a holiday greeting on the stars. Glue the two stars together, with a tooth pick in the middle.

Writing Name On Christmas Tree Star

Totally optional: Paint your tree with Mod Podge Sparkle. This helps the tree to be a bit more sturdy and adds some special glimmer to it! Allow the tree to dry for several hours.

Adding Podge Podge Sparkle To Christmas Tree

Use some glue on the end of the toothpick. Insert it into the top of the tree!
