These wire place card holders are cheap and easy to make - perfect if you need to make lots for a big celebration! I used copper wire which is very soft, easy to bend and has a lovely colour, however any type of wire should work.
I cut a piece of wire about 20cm long.
Curl one end of the wire into a spiral.
Twist the other end up at a right angle and curl the end into a spiral.
One of the spirals will sit flat on the table. You can then slide a name card into the vertical spiral.
