Rosemary Wreath Place Cards

Just in time for holiday season I wanted to share again this super easy DIY for these Rosemary Wreath place cards. They are super cute – and also SUPER EASY! You can get most of this stuff at the grocery store! I think I will be doing this for Christmas dinner this year. 

Rosemary Wreath Place Cards supplies At the farmers market I go to this one booth has these crazy long stems of rosemary. They are so huge and awesome, I was always trying to think of a creative non food way of using them. This idea of using them for place cards just popped into my head and seemed like a winner. So, I went with it, and now we have some cute little Rosemary Wreath Place Cards DIY for you, perfecto for Thanksgiving, obviously. Yay! This project is really simple. All you need are rosemary sprigs, floral wire, scissors, and twine.
Rosemary Wreath Place Cards DIY I soaked my rosemary in a water bath first to make the sprigs a little more plyable and clean. After you have done that, cut them into 7 to 8 inch lengths. If you can only get ones shorter than that, that’s ok, you can scale the size of the name-tags to fit your circle. Now just form the sprigs into a circle. Try not to get too aggressive, because you don’t want them to snap! Secure the top by winding around some floral wire. These wreaths that you see pictured are what I like to call “rustic.” If you have a little bit of a control problem, then I would purchase a higher gauge floral wire in green (I’m thinking 24 guage). That way you can wind the floral wire all the way throughout each sprig, and make yourself a perfectly circular wreath. It helps if you form the wire around something like a cup first, to ensure perfect roundness. This isn’t necessary at all, I actually like the more ‘free form’ look, and it takes less time. :) Rosemary Wreath Place Cards directions Rosemary Wreath Place Cards made with floral wire After you have done this to all your mini wreaths, the next step is to cover your floral wire mess. I used plain old white kitchen twine because I thought it would look the cutest. You can use really anything. I wound the twine around a couple of times before tying the bow to ensure I covered all the wire.
Rosemary Wreath Place Cards with bows The next step is to print out the little name tags. I do have this file for you, which is basically the shape of the cards I used. You can add text and type each persons name on each little tag. Or, if you have good handwriting, you can just write it! I used the font Hannah. After you have printed out the name tags, cut them out! Then, with a pencil or pen, give the little tag some body by curling the paper using your pencil as a curling iron.
Rosemary Wreath Place Cards name tags Rosemary Wreath Place Cards That’s it! It’s really that simple! We love them! They are so cute, and so easy! We just set them on top of a folded napkin, but you could also use this method as a straight up napkin ring with a little tag tucked in the side. So many possibilities! We have another rosemary place card situation up our sleeves so stay tuned for that. Now go get your DIY on!

    Bravo I lpve this! thx

    • Joan Not Specified Not Specified

      How far in advance of Thanksgiving can I make these Rosemary Napkin Rings?
      Should I put them in the Refrig. after I make them?

      • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

        You can make them three days or maybe 4 in advance. Store them (without the paper) on a cookie sheet in the fridge covered with a damp paper towel. Refreshing the paper towel a couple of times would help too!

    • Ali Not Specified Not Specified

      I saw this exact tutorial and pictures on a Swedish website but couldn’t read it. Thanks for the translation.

  7. Aimee @ Simple Bites Not Specified Not Specified

    Super sweet! I love using natural elements for decorations.

  8. Mary Not Specified Not Specified

    OOOH, I love these little wreaths,do you think the scent would be overwhelming if I hung them on my cut Christmas tree and tied little red satin bows on them instead of twine. Would the scent with fresh pine be too much?

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      Sounds so cute! I really don’t. While the rosemary is pretty fragrant, it’s not overwhelming.

  9. Glenda Not Specified Not Specified

    I love, love, love, love this idea!! Thank you for sharing this :)

  10. Karen Not Specified Not Specified

    Such a cute idea! Now I have something else to do with my crazy huge rosemary plant! And we usually host Thanksgiving at our house, so this will be perfect for each place setting! :)

  11. Lauren Not Specified Not Specified

    What a fabulous idea! I’m in the works of planning a small Thanksgiving with my girl friends and this would be perfect. I’ve always loved your tiny food party inspiration so my thought is to have everyone bring Thanksgiving inspired hors d’oeurves instead of going all out twice. Looking forward to getting more ideas from your blog as the big day approaches!

  12. Mary Ann Not Specified Not Specified

    Simple, rustic, and a great way to decorate a harvest table. I will do this with my rosemary from the garden and feel really crafty doing it!

    Hi again! I commented yesterday about hosting a Tapas Thanksgiving for my girl friends and I.

    Love the idea too! Exactly the thing I like to do for Thanksgiving. I’m wondering, could you use sprigs of sage the same way? If you are using sage in the stuffing it might tie in well if some don’t love the smell of rosemary… Thanks so much for the terrific idea!

      Hi! So glad you like them. They are from Heath Ceramics. I love them! Heavy, beautiful and dishwasher safe and all that jazz. :)

  177. Marisa Not Specified Not Specified

    What an adorable idea! And to think I have Rosemary growing right outside my door. This would be great any time of year. Thank you!

  178. Rachel Not Specified Not Specified

    Hi there! How long should I soak the rosemary to make it more pliable? Thank you :)

  179. Karen Not Specified Not Specified

    Hi Teri! I absolutely love these rosemary wreaths for a table setting. I would love to make these for my daughter’s baptism dinner this weekend. However, the name tag template is now protected and I cannot get it to save as a word document. Is there anyway you can please provide an unprotected version? Please, oh please!! :)

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Karen! Word doesn’t open PDF. What you need to do is start a word doc and insert the PDF as a picture into your word doc. Hope this helps!

      • Dani Not Specified Not Specified

        Hi Tery! Sorry but I don‘t understand how to make it writeable in Word if I insert the PDF as a picture!? Could you please describe it a bit more in detail? Thanks and many regards from Germany :-)

        • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

          Hi Dani – You will need to write over the image in word. It looks like there are a ton of video how tos if you google “how to write over an image in word” Good luck!

  180. Jacqueline Not Specified Not Specified

    Hi Terilyn,

    I am looking at making about 120 of these for my wedding; how long did it take you to make one after the soaking process? Just want to make sure I have enough hands on deck to help out and that we are not scrambling to get them done.

    Thanks for your help and so looking forward to seeking these beauties on all the tables for my big day!

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Jacqueline, Not very long. Maybe about 5 min each? I think you should def do a trial run to see how long it may take you, but I’m sure once you get the hang of it, it will go quickly!

  181. meal5 Not Specified Not Specified

  184. Natalie Not Specified Not Specified

    Love it, planning on doing this for thanksgiving! How far in advance can I make them so they stay fresh (or at least don’t turn brown?)

    • Teri Lyn Fisher Not Specified Not Specified

      I would say you could leave them in the fridge and make them up to three days in advance – but it really depends on how fresh the rosemary you will be using is. :)

  185. V8web Not Specified Not Specified

    Perfect for the upcoming summer!

  186. veefx Not Specified Not Specified
