DIY Scandinavian Christmas Place Cards

Confession time: I’ve never hosted a dinner party.  What with our teeny-tiny table and a three-year-old at our heels, it’s never been exactly appealing.  (I have hosted Easter and Thanksgiving, but I’m not going to count them.  I’m talking about a real, grown-up dinner party here).

If you missed my holiday home tour last week, I was feeling some blog guilt for not showing more of my home– so I put together a simple holiday table setting.  Does it matter that I only got to enjoy it for a day before having to relinquish it back to my toddler’s play-doh? Nope! It was so much fun to put together–especially these DIY Scandinavian Christmas place cards.  Here’s a quick run-down of how I made them:


  • Cardstock
  • Sprigs of greenery (like white pine)
  • Washi tape
  • Alphabet stamps
  • Ink


  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Hole punch

DIY Scandinavian Christmas Place Cards1. Cut out a house shape from your cardstock, about 2″ square.

DIY Scandinavian Christmas Place Cards2. Stamp the initials or name of your guest.

DIY Scandinavian Christmas Place Cards3. Punch a hole in the top.

DIY Scandinavian Christmas Place Cards4. Add washi tape across the bottom.

DIY Scandinavian Christmas Place Cards5. Insert the greenery.

Simple, easy, and fast! Are you hosting Christmas dinner this year? How are you decorating the table?DIY Scandinavian Christmas Place Cards

      Thanks Bethany! They are vintage, and I picked them up at my friend Cassie’s vintage barn sale, Sweet Clover Barn. I’m sure you could find similar ones on eBay or Etsy by searching ‘mid century brass candlesticks’. 🙂
