Make these DIY place card holders in any colors for your next party.
I love projects that do double-duty.
These easy DIY place card holders have a second life after your party as wooden photo holders!
The best part? You can make them in under 20 minutes! I created this tutorial as part of this month’s At Home DIY challenge: home decor under $20.
P.S. You can get this dinosaur art for free. That plus the wooden photo holders is perfect for a kids’ room or birthday party!
Oh, and one of the things that makes this project so easy and approachable is that you don’t need any intense power tools.
You can certainly use a saw if you have one. But if you don’t own a saw and don’t want to invest, you can do this entire DIY place holder project with a Dremel rotary tool and a cutting blade for it.

Be sure to wear safety glasses and gloves to protect yourself from any flying bits of wood.
2. Paint each wooden ball with acrylic paint. Let it dry, and then add a second coat.
For lighter colors, you may even need a third coat.
I recommend using a nice acrylic paint to get better coverage in fewer coats. It’s worth the money versus the cheapest one at the craft store, since you won’t have to use as much anyway.
