Wooden Place Cards


Today I finally found some time to take pictures of our wooden place cards, which we made a few weeks ago. If you are going to have a country wedding, you can definitely use this idea. You will need:

– a beautiful wood logs cut into thin coasters (birch tree would be very nice, I just love the bark of that tree)

– a tool for wood burning

– carbon paper (I would strongly recommend using the black instead of the blue, as the latter overflows while burning)

– a pencil

– a printed guest list (remember to choose a matching font)

Step 1:

Cut out all the names.

Step 2:

Cut a small piece of carbon paper.

Step 3:

Put a carbon paper on a coaster. Be sure that you use the right side (I did that mistake a few times).

Step 4:

Put a cut out name on top.

Step 5:

Take a pencil and rewrite the name following your print out version. (See the picture)

Step 6:

Take the papers off and burn the names on the wood, following the trace.

Step 7:

Enjoy your good work! 🙂

It can be really tiresome, if you are going to have a 100 or more guests. I’m having only a bit over 30, and it still was a big job to do. Nevertheless, it is really worth your time.
