I always enjoy adding place cards to our table for holiday meals. These DIY Easter Table Setting Place Cards were easy to put together and they didn’t take long at all to make. They will be a fun addition to our Easter tablescape this year. Even when we only have a small gathering, having place cards adds to the festive look to the table.
To make these Easter Table Setting Place Cards, I used some stiff felt eggs that I purchased a few years ago. I used them for an Easter Wreath I made last season. I bought some heavy card stock to add to the felt. Using the felt as a template, I cut the card stock to fit.
A piece of card stock is glued to each felt egg. I didn’t use hot glue for this because I thought it might show through the card stock. I used regular white craft glue, spread lightly.
Using a gold paint pen, I wrote everyone’s name on the card stock.
To give the edges a finished look, I added a strip of narrow Washi tape around each egg.
The idea for making these place cards started when I spotted a package of plastic bunnies at Michaels. If would have been great if they had all been pink, but since they were an assortment of colors, I knew I could paint them all to match.
I used Waverly Chalk Paint in Ballet Slipper Pink. It took two coats to cover each bunny.
Once the bunnies were dry, they were hot glued to the eggs.
They make me think of an Easter bunny delivering a giant egg!
Adding place cards is a fun way to dress up any tablescape. Making them as a DIY project adds a personal touch for each guest.
My dining room tablescape for Easter is done using pink and white this year. I’m putting the finishing touches on it and I’ll be sharing it next week. Here’s a quick peek at how the place card looks on the table.
