Turn a simple cinnamon stick into the most elegant place card holder!

You will need:

Cinnamon sticks

Card stock



  1. For this craft, sort through a pack of cinnamon sticks and pick out ones that naturally have a flat base and a slit open enough to hold a piece of paper. 
  2. Cut out pieces of colored cardstock the same length as the cinnamon sticks and write out the names of your guests' on the cards. Then, slide the name into the slit of the cinnamon stick to make the place card.
  3. If you find sticks that have a flat side but the slit is too tightly curled to allow for a piece of paper to sit inside without toppling, you can adhere the name card to the slit with a glue gun.
