Using apples as place card holders is an inexpensive and simple way to add some fall to your table. They're perfect for any autumnal party, whether it's a fall bridal showers, engagement party, dinner party or Thanksgiving. They also make great party favors for guests to take home and enjoy.
To make these DIY apple place cards, you'll need:
Apples with stems intact (I used Macintosh but any variety will do)
Card stock (craft stores sell single sheets)
Twine or ribbon
Here's how to put them together: Using a Word document, printed all of the names on the card stock (leave several lines between each name, and make two columns by tabbing over so you don't waste any space/ paper). Make a rubber leaf template by printing it on a sheet of regular paper using this leaf template
(you need Abobe Reader to download the template), or copying the shape onto a piece of paper with a pencil like I did for the place cards pictured (the rubber leaf shape is very simple to draw/ cut and they don't need to be perfect). Cut the template out and trace it around each of the printed names, centering the names inside the leaf (you will be able to see the printed names through your template if it is made of regular paper). Cut the leaves out and punched a hole to the left of each name, near the end of the leaf using a single-hole punch. Used some inexpensive twine to tie the leaves to the apple stems. Happy fall!
