DIY clip-on earring Place Card Holders

Ok, this is my last entry.

This time I am going to show you how to make Place Card Holders using clip-on earrings.


an assortment of clip on earrings

small wooden blocks

hot glue gun

Step 1:

“Open” the clip on earrings.

Step 2:

Apply hot glue to the back of the back of the earring.

Step 3:

Adhere to a wooden block, making sure the bottom of the earring doesn’t extend too far past the bottom of the block. (So the block can sit up)

Step 4:

Repeat until all the blocks are complete.

Step 5:

Insert Place Cards and set on a beautifully arranged table!

*Another use for clip-on earrings is to use them to close and embellish your attendants gifts. Here they are keeping the bag closed and also holding the ribbon and card in place.

Both projects are super simple, and I think it’s like adding “jewels” to your table and/or bag. Have fun!
