Skeleton key escort tags 1

This easy project will make a big impact at your reception entrance. Pin these cute escort cards onto a fabric-covered board for a refined look or nail them onto an old door for a more rustic look, and choose a twine or ribbon that suits your wedding style.

Skeleton key escort tags materials

You will need:

  • Scalloped-edge paper tags (available from office supply stores and newsagents)
  • Small skeleton keys (I bought mine here)
  • Bakers twine (I bought mine here)
  • Felt-tip pen (don’t use a ball-point, the indentation and uneven ink will leave it looking cheap)

2. Handwrite guests’ names and table numbers on tags.

Bonus Tip: if you leave off the table numbers to start with, you can even use the tags themselves to plan your seating arrangements. Simply add the table numbers when your seating has been finalised after your RSVPs have all come in.

Ms Gingham says: Another super duper easy but really pretty project from Alicia. I’m glad “skeleton keys” don’t actually have skeletons on them though! 😀
