You could use small binder clips.  Just remove the little metal part like in this tutorial… http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/table-card-holders  For escort cards, I would use the smaller binder clips though.  Very low budget.

My colors were chocolate and green too!  I made this: 

using baskets I got from Hobby Lobby.  I filled them with moss and stuck each one in with a copper pick I made from wire.  Hope that helps!

 

edit:  Here they are @ the ceremony, without the flowers and decor yet:

My plan (that I know I’ve seen pictures of somewhere, but didn’t save) is to get a couple large picture frames from goodwill or a flea market.  Paint them in my wedding colors, and then run lines of twine across them.  I’m going to hang the escort cards from the twine with small clothespins.

I haven’t totally decided what the escort cards are going to look like yet.  Something I can cut out with my Cricut.

I had planned to do the picture frame thing mentioned by buttontoes but, as it turned out, you need a really large picture frame for that to work. So, I got two flower pots, filled them with river rocks to weigh them down and put some poles in the middle then attached thin ribbon between them and hung the escort cards with clothespins. It is not low but it is completely flexible and also easy to remove once everyone takes their cards.
