- Floral shears
- Evergreen branches (about the thickness of a pencil)
- Hot-glue gun
- Card stock
- Calligraphy or felt-tip pen
- Small evergreen sprigs
Step 1: With floral shears, cut slim evergreen branches into 4-inch segments. Trim off any nubs.
Step 2: Holding two segments of about the same thickness, adjust them to fit together snugly — this might require some twisting, turning, and further trimming.
Step 3: Turn pair of branches over; run a line of hot glue across the pair’s width, 1/4 inch from each end. Let dry.
Step 4: Write a guest’s name on a 1-by-2 1/2-inch piece of card stock.
Step 5: Slip place card into holder; tuck a small evergreen sprig into one end.
Note: You could use cinnamon sticks in place of the branches
