Ombre is definitely one of my favorite trends this year. It’s an easy way to incorporate subtle glimpses of color into your big day without everything being too match-matchy, I’m definitely not a fan of that! These DIY ombre place cards are a super simple ombre project for you to recreate on your own–

  • Your choice of paint color
  • 3 bowls
  • 3 foam brushes
  • Water

Squirt a touch of paint into three bowls. Add water to one bowl so that the color is less saturated, then double that amount of water for the third bowl. Now you’ll have three shades of your color choice.

Use a foam brush to brush on the lightest shade first. Then use separate brushes for the second and third shades, moving further down each time.

Set the cards aside to dry. Once dry, you can add an extra touch with a hole punch, calligraphy, twine, or a cute place card stand.

I created these citrus holders just by cutting a line across the top of a lime!
