You know I love to find new uses for common items.  Here is one to make place card holders for your holiday table using an “owl-style” paper clip.

Try this on your holiday table to add a bit of style very simply. It will take a few short minutes and will add a beautiful embellishment to your table. Your guests will also feel special having their own place card holders.

How To Make Simple Place Card Holders

supplies needed:

  • Owl Style Paper Clips
  • Card Stock
  • Chalk

I made the place card holders by spray painting card stock with black chalkboard paint.  When dry, I wrote the name with white chalk.

I love making place cards for my dinner parties as I can ensure that each person will be seated next to someone they are comfortable with or haven’t met yet. They are also very easy to move around if someone  shows up in a wheelchair and needs a more spacious corner spot at the table.


Place the chalkboard cards in the place card holders on a buffet table to identify each dish. This way your guests will know what they are eating while adding a stylish detail to your table.

If you can’t find the owl style paper clips in your area, they do sell them on Amazon.com
