        Here are a few that came up when I googled "DIY wedding place cards." I personally like the sand bucket one.

          I made my own place card holders which also doubled as favors. They were photo holders AFTER the wedding, and place card holders during. They are SUPER easy to make.

          Buy the 2" large binder clips at the store. Buy large sheets of paper. Cut little strips. Place double sided tape on each side of the binder clip and slide the sheets of paper under the little black lip. Tie ribbon around the indent in the metal parts (see picture). Purchase a fun shaped large punch (around 2") Punch out two sides. Place the foam double sided tape stuff in the middle of the fun shapes and it'll cover the metal. In my case, i have stamps, so I stamped "Happily Ever After" on fun shaped punches. Then just slip the name card in the top... done. Super easy. super fast. super cute!

            I made placecards using little drink umbrellas. They were easy and cheap!

              do you have a certain "theme" at all??

              if you or any of your friends work in the bar/restaurant industry - collect all the wine and champagne corks you can find and put a little slit in the top to stick the card. that's a pretty common one. another simple idea could be to collect rocks when you get there and get a set of stamps and stamp everyone's name on a rock.

              my last thought is this: go to etsy and search for place cards...see what others are making and selling - use that as inspiration to make your own.

                    I'd go with the pails they look really cute!
