Rosh Hashanah Place Cards - DIY

For a Sweet New Year


How cute are these – and easy to make too! Our miniature place card favor is symbolic of Rosh Hashanah with an apple top on top, and a mini terrine style jar filled with miniature pomegranate candy from Torie & Howard. All of the supplies, with the exception of the candy,  are purchased from our local craft store. What you will need:

  • Terrine style mini glass jars: 3 1/4-inches high. We paid $1 each

  • Small mini apples: We purchased these on sale; they were old winter holiday decorations and we clipped off the apples

  • Miniature labels: From our favorite maven, Martha Stewart - part of her scrapbooking collection; strips of self-sticking labels

  • Miniature apple stickers; found in the scrapbooking section: We used glittery ones

  • Raffia ribbon

  • Hot glue gun: A staple in our do–it–yourself supply kit


The steps to creating the place cards are very simple:

  1. Using the glue gun, glue the apples to the top of the jar.

  2. Write the names of your guests on the labels - we ran ours through the printer - and adhere to the jar.

  3. Place an apple sticker on the jar.

  4. Fill the jar with mini candies, tie with a several strands of raffia ribbon and you are set to go.

The jars can also be filled with honey – either way, you are wishing your family and guests a sweet New Year. Enjoy!
