Easy Name Placecards Tutorial

I’ve never been one for a setting a fancy table but there is something so cute about name placecards at a table. I made these a few weeks ago and my children use them every night for dinner. It took me 10 mintues to make these but they’ll be enjoyed thoroughly until we make a new set. This easy name placecard tutorial is sewn but you don’t have to sew it! This can be a no sew tutorial if you don’t have a sewing machine!

  • Phoomph (by Coats & Clark, find it in any craft or fabric store or online)
  • Fabric scraps
  • Paper with printed or handwritten names

Cute table & easy name tags tutorial

Cut your paper any size you want. I made mine about 3/4″ x 1.5″. Using a long stitch, sew the paper onto your fabric. It’s easier to do this project if you don’t cut the fabric first. Don’t want to sew? Just use a little glue!


Next, you’ll sandwich the phoomph between the fabric layers.

Peel the sticky paper off the phoomph.


Cut to the size you desire.

Easy to make name placeholders for the table
