I love making handmade place cards because they add a fun personal touch to tablescape décor. Plus, they bring people together to sit at a table and I think there’s always something special about that. Craft up a batch of these place cards for your next party and there’s no doubt your guests will be impressed!

how-to:

Sand Art Place Cards

Step 1
Paint each of your wooden tiles a different color and allow them to fully dry. I recommend painting with lighter colors because they don’t bleed through the sand as much as darker ones do.

Step 2
Sketch simple summer shapes onto your tiles with a pencil. Be sure to leave some space for the foam letters below each sketch. I drew an orange, beach umbrella, pinwheel, ice cream cone, and paddle ball game but the creative opportunities are truly endless here. If you don’t feel comfortable drawing shapes freehand, you can totally use stencils for this part, too!

Step 3
Dip a small paintbrush into a dollop of glue and paint the glue onto your tiles one section at a time.

After you’ve painted a section, cover it with sand, and then remove any of the excess. If you need to clean up any lines, use a small paintbrush to dust off any lingering sand.
