Hi! We are resposting this for Thanksgiving because its a super cute placecard thats actually easy and you can get the pretty rosemary at the grocery store! YAY! We have another rosemary place card DIY for you today. These ones are Rosemary Sprig Place Cards. I am really excited about the little place card DIYs we have been doing. I just love incorporating natural elements like these into my table scape. These cards are slightly easier than the Rosemary Wreath Place Cards, and require less supplies. All you need are some sprigs of rosemary, printed (or hand written!) place cards, and a hole punch. So let’s get started!
Rosemary Spring Place Cards DIY Place Cards with Rosemary DIY The first thing to do is gather some sprigs of rosemary. For this project, the sprigs I used were approximately 5.5 to 6 inches. Once you do that, you will need to take the leaves off the ends. Leave about an inch or so on each end.
Rosemary Spring Place Cards Let’s talk about the place cards. Each card I made is 3.5 by 6 inches. The holes are half an inch from the top, and a quarter of an inch from the side. This is important because you don’t want the holes to get too close to the side of the card because once you put the sprigs through the holes, your paper could rip. I also recommend using a card stock, for heft and prettiness. After you have determined hole placement, I recommend starting your name so the top of the name hits 1.5 inches from the top of the card. I liked this amount of space because it wasn’t too close where the name would be touching the rosemary.
Rosemary Spring Place Cards Alright, so you have your cards printed or hand written (if you have write them, I am so envious! I have the worst hand writing ever!), and your holes punched, here comes the hard part. Put the sprigs through the holes. JK, that wasn’t hard at all, it was easy. That’s why I love this project. I folded my napkins to create a little pocket so I could stuff the card into it all cute like. The font I used is Hello I like you.

That’s it! You’re done! So easy! You could also do these with store bough tent cards if you prefer. I would punch the hole right near the crease.

        I am
        Making these for my son’s rehearsal dinner. Do you have a way to recommend removing the rosemary from the end of the sprig on the end of the stem? ( the other end is easier to remove because it can easily be pulled off).

        • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

          I have no trick for this unfortunately. My recommendation is to use thicker stocks of rosemary because it makes pulling them off quickly easier.

    These are lovely! I’d like to incorporate rosemary into place cards I’m doing for a bridal shower next weekend. Did you use dried or fresh rosemary? I feel like dried would be sturdier but I’m afraid they would shed easily.

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      We used fresh. Rosemary is pretty sturdy, and doesn’t really wilt because the leaves are so hefty. :)

  23. Sharon Not Specified Not Specified

    I love these simple and the rosemary smells so good.

    The idea is delightful and I will make these cards for the Thanksgiving table.
    Did you purchase sheets of printable 3.5×6″ place cards or did you cut them to size?
    Thank you.

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Lisa,

      I cut them to size, although you can find menu cards that are printable and perforated that are close to this in size I believe.

    Love this idea. We are doing a ladies event at our church and the theme is Seasoned with Grace. Too perfect. Wondering how long the rosemary will last. We decorate on Thursday for our Saturday event.

  58. Vivian Broutsos Not Specified Not Specified

    Love this idea! Getting married in a couple of weeks and was wondering what size hole punch (in mm) you used? Desperately trying to find one online so I can do some last minute wedding DIY!

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Vivian,

      I used a screw punch, so I’m not totally sure what size that it. I used the martha stewart brand. Good luck!

  59. Heather Not Specified Not Specified

    What size font did you use?

  60. Mary Mentzer Not Specified Not Specified

    Too perfect.Love this idea!

  61. Sophie Not Specified Not Specified

    I am trying to do these for my wedding, I love them!! How did you print them? Did you use a template in Microsoft word? Thank you!

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi! There is no template, but you could certainly make one yourself using the measurements listed in the post and downloading the font I listed as well!

  62. Yumvilla Not Specified Not Specified

    I love it! Thanks for the idea!

  63. KRAYL FUNCH Not Specified Not Specified

    SO Super Cute! Thank you for reposting!! Great quick and easy idea for the holiday table. Thank you!

  64. Susan Not Specified Not Specified

    Did you buy the rosemary from your local grocery store? Or did you order from somewhere?

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      Just at the grocery store – the bundles seem to be more stick like than the kind that comes in the plastic container.
