We created these ‘au naturel’ escort card holders for a wedding with a very craftsman feel.  We used chocolate brown and green to match the wedding colors, but you can match and personalize these to your own wedding or event.

If you are interested in purchasing these escort card holders, you can visit YourLifEvents Etsy store.  We have a variety of styles and themes including vineyard, garden, fall, shabby chic, contemporary and are willing to customize the design to fit your wedding style.  You can click here to go directly to item listing.

Otherwise, read on to learn how to make your own:

Items Needed:

  • 2×4 pieces of wood cut to 12″ in length
  • Miter Saw to cut the slots in the wood (or a friend who has one.  Sometimes the guys at home depot can do this for you too…sometimes)
  • Wood Stain
  • Foam Brush
  • Latex gloves
  • Moss
  • Glue Gun
  • Ribbon

How To Make:

  1. Cut the 2×4’s to be 12 inches in length.
  2. Lightly sand each board.  Stain each board on 3 sides, let dry.  Stain final side, let dry.
  3. Measure slots to be 1″ apart (you should be able to fit 12 slots/cards on your board).  I would stain first because you don’t want any stain dripping into the slots.
  4. Use the miter saw in accordance with safe practices to cut each measured slot in the wood.
  5. Wrap moss around edges using glue gun as you go around.  Tie a ribbon around moss edge to help secure in place.
