I had some leftover rosemary in my craft room last week (you have no idea the randomness that room holds) and I thought that it would make an adorable mini rosemary wreath. And if one was going to make an adorable mini wreath then shouldn’t one put a little bow and banner one that wreath and call it a place card?
Yes. One should. So I did.
And you should too!

Begin by wiring your rosemary into a circle. I used two sprig of rosemary, one over the other to create more fullness in my little wreath. You may find this is a little easier the more fresh the rosemary is as it stiffens as it dries out. After you get the wreath together you can trim or hide any excess floral wire.
Add a bow (to see how I make “pretty” bows see this post) Next cut a piece of cardstock approximately 1/2″ by 3″ and write your message of choice-these would be adorable with names for a table setting or a generic message like I chose. Using your fingers gently curve your cardstock banner to give it dimension. Snip the ends decoratively if you like.
Use hot glue to adhere the banner to both sides of the wreath and you’re all finished! A cute, easy to make addition to any holiday table! I love these, imagine how you could change them up throughout the year by changing ribbons too!
Do you use place cards at your holiday tables?
