Since we have been on such an Easter recipe kick this week, I also wanted to share a quick little Easter-related DIY project. I got the idea for these Easter place cards from a book my mom gave to me for my birthday. I read about Craft-A-Day: 365 Simple Homemade Projects on another blog and added it to my Amazon wish list. It has so many cute and easy projects in it and I love flipping through it for ideas.
The Craft-A-Day book did not have a specific project for Easter place cards, but I modified a couple of their egg and bunny-themed projects. This place cards would be a lot of fun to make with kids! Also, the first person to name the television show that I got all these names from is our official 2 Sisters 2 Cities’ reader of the month :)
The only supplies you need to make these Easter place cards are white and pastel-colored card stock, scissors, double-sided tape or glue, and colorful gel pens. A circle and oval stencil could come in handy, but it’s not necessarily needed.
To make the egg place cards, you just need to cut out egg shapes from various shades of paper. It helps to have a template version on the egg so that you can use it to trace all the other eggs so they are a uniform shape and size. Then, cut one of the eggs in half and cut a strip from the middle of another egg. Tape or glue these two pieces onto a full egg to create three colorful parts. Then, tape the egg onto a folded place card and write in the guest name.
Alternatively, you could just wrap one full egg in various colors of washi tape:
I also couldn’t resist making a couple fun-loving bunnies for my Easter table. To make these, I just cut small circles out of white card stock. I then cut out a pair of ears using the white and the “inner ears” using a shade of pink. I snipped off a corner of the pink paper for the bunny’s nose. I used double-sided tape to attach the bunny face, ears, and nose to a pink-colored place card. Then, use a black gel pen to draw in the bunny’s eyes, mouth, and whiskers. Finally, use a fun colored pen add the guest name to the place card.
Happy Easter everyone! I’m off to go stock up on liquor for my guests…
