Super Easy Easter Place Cards For The Kiddies {Egg Holders}

It was such a gorgeous day today that I had to ditch the tablescapes and play with my little guy outside. We had fun and there is always tomorrow. I did manage to start on the kiddie table and came up with these cute place cards for our little guests.

These are incredibly easy and festive, plus I think the kiddies will get a kick out of them!
I started by drawling a rough template by hand. I made the base 1 1/4 inches tall and 6 1/2 inches long to ensure it would hold and go around a plastic egg. To get the ears semi-even I folded the paper in half and cut them out.

The template was then traced onto a piece of felt and cut out.

I tried using fabric for the center of the ears but it was just a bit too heavy and made the ears floppy {not that there is anything wrong with floppy bunny ears}. Since I didn’t want to spend time stiffening the felt or using backing, I decided to paint the centers using creamy peach acrylic paint.

Once dry they were wrapped around some plastic eggs and hot glued the ends together. The eggs were your basic inexpensive plastic eggs that I painted with acrylic to coordinate with the tablescape colors. The eggs were filled with after dinner treats and surprises for our little guests.
For the personalized tags I simply printed out the names on white paper, cut out with decorative scrapbooking scissors and hot glued to the front.
These would make adorable napkin rings too! I hope our little guests like them! Enjoy!
