The last DIY project I have to share with yall from my Christmas table setting is for the wood slice place cards.  I really got into the tree theme by customizing the placemats and using some mini trees from Target’s dollar spot, so I decided to keep the trend going by using wood slices as place cards.  I have seen so many people do iron on projects on wood, so thought this would be my first project with it!

Wood Slice Place Cards

What you’ll need:

These place cards took only minutes to do, so you can really do them right before an event if you want!  First, you’ll want to open Design Space and enter the names.  Since the plates and my wine glasses had a script font, I opted to use a serif style font.  I resized the names to be 2″ wide so they would fit the wood slices nicely.  Then I cut them on some scrap htv I had with my Maker!

Note: Remember to mirror your design for iron on materials!

After cutting, I removed the excess htv with my weeder tool and got my EasyPress ready.  I turned it on and set the temperature to 265 degrees.  I placed my wood slice on my folded towel, put the design on top and then put the EasyPress on and turned the timer on for 15 seconds.

When the timer was done, I slowly removed the clear backing and repeated for my other place card.  Seriously, in just a few minutes my wooden place cards were done.  I loved how simple these were and they fit perfectly with my tree theme!

I’m already thinking of more wood & iron on projects I can whip up now that I know how easy it is!
