Hi all of you Southern Institute readers!

I’m Katie and I blog over at Creatively Living.

Today I’m going to show you how to make these simple name holders for any winter tablescape.

These are probably the easiest name holders I’ve ever made, but they could be my favorite.

I started with a package of silver ornament stars from the Dollar Store. (I think there were 5 or 6 in the box).

Two kinds of ribbon. One plain, one with something fun on it.

An evergreen clipping.

Sparkle letter stickers.


First, I made the name cards by adding a sparkly letter sticker and then using a black pen to write the rest of the name.

Next I pulled the ribbon through the ornament hole and the name card.

Then I tied the ribbon around the evergreen clipping and tied on a shorter piece of the “fun” ribbon.

And that’s it! Pretty simple huh?

I placed the name holder on a small black plate, so it would really stand out.

And then layered a contrasting colored plate and a charger.

Here you can see the rest of my Christmas dining room.

Thanks for having me Jenny!

I hope you all come see me sometime and check out other DIY home/craft ideas at Creatively Living!

 Thank you for sharing with us this week, Katie!  Your home is just lovely.  You are welcome to come spiff mine up any time!  

Have a great week everyone!  See you tomorrow at The Southern Institute!
