Merry Christmas My Crafty Spot readers! It is Lindsay from My Creative Days here to share with you Christmas Tree Place Cards that I made for the Gingerbread House Party we hosted at our house.

I have been wanting to host a Christmas party for our kids and their friends for a long time, so I was so excited we were able to get everyone together this year.

In our Gingerbread House Workshop, I set a “station” at the table for each child . I wanted everyone to have their own work station and spot to eat goodies and drink hot cocoa.

Since all the kids had a designated spot, place cards were in order.

To make these Christmas Tree Place Cards, I used:

  • Foam pieces (from a Christmas craft kit I got on clearance last year)
  • Thick brown paper
  • Glue
  • Green gift toppers
  • 1″ circles punched from yellow paper
  • Tiny clothespins
  • Wood slice place card holders

It couldn’t be easier to make these Christmas trees.

I cut the thick, brown paper in about 5″ strips. You need two strips per tree. Then, I cut the green foam pieces in ascending lengths.

I glued the two strips of brown paper together (to make them stronger for holding the foam pieces).

Then, I glued the green foam pieces on the brown strip.

I glued the green, gift topper to the top of the tree. Then, I used a tiny clothes pin to attach the 1″ yellow circle to the tree. It looks like an ornament! I wrote each child’s name on the circles.

I know not everyone has textured, green foam pieces lying around so you could do the same thing with scrapbook paper, Washi tape or even construction paper.

I love the little forest I have created with these place cards.

These little trees are so festive and would work on any Christmas tablescape.

I know the kids are going to enjoy looking for their names on these trees. At the end of the party, they can take their trees out of the holders and take them home. I am going to tell them that they can punch a hole in the top of the thick brown paper and add some ribbon so they can hang them in their Christmas trees at home. Now that I am thinking about it, I might just do that for them before they leave.
