How to Make Tree Branch Card Holders

3 Materials
20 Minutes
If you are looking for a cute, quick and FREE way to display cards/photos of all sorts then this is the perfect post for you!

These card holders have limitless functions. Use them for name place cards at a party or holiday, labeling food dishes, displaying photos, holding business cards on your desk, etc. They are made from something you probably have in your yard…tree branches.

With an early heavy snowfall this fall we woke up to several tree branches in our yard. Loss for the tree = gain for me. I grabbed one of these branches and got to work.

Once I had the section of my branch cut, I cut it into smaller more manageable sizes with a miter saw.
At this point I kept the branches longer making it easier and safer to cut a notch.  Then I cut a 1/4 inch notch in the end using the Rockwell Bladerunner. 

I used a miter saw to cut the holders to size. 
Since I planned to use these for various reasons I cut a variety of lengths.
With the upcoming holidays these are perfect for place card holders for your guests.
