Easter Place Cards

Happy St Patrick's Day!

I realize I skipped over this holiday for crafting ideas, but if you want rainbow related projects, see this post for Josie's rainbow themed birthday party. Paper Glitter provided all kinds of free rainbow templates here.

Back on this post, I suggested that you might want to pick up plastic Easter eggs and fuzzy chicks. If you can use a glue gun, you can make these Easter place cards. Pinky swear.

Easter eggs
Glue gun
Easter grass
Fuzzy chicks
Pipe cleaners
Rick rack and mini flowers (optional)

1. Cut out cardboard square pieces and apply hot glue to the center of the cardboard and spread Easter grass over the glue.

2. Take a part the plastic Easter egg and attach with glue gun to the grass/cardboard.

3. Add rick rack around the diameter of the egg and cut a a pipe cleaner in half and attach with glue gun to the interior of the egg.

4. I then hot glued a coordinated fuzzy chick on the handle of each basket and added a tiny silk flower.

5. The final touch was to print off name tags and attach with hot glue to the plastic egg.

6. Don't forget to fill with your favorite Easter candy!

It's nearly the weekend.
I've got all kinds of thrifty/crafty projects planned!

Really great idea! I have the hardest time getting into decorating for Easter. I am not sure why. I need to find some vintage Easter things and I might get into it more. But I LOVE Easter crafts. The kids would love this. thanks!

Those little chenille chicks bring back such happy Easter memories from childhood! I absolutely love the way you combined the vintage looking elements like the ricrac and silver pipecleaner with the plastic egg to achieve a very cheery, yet vintage look! Thank you for linking up another spectacular creation at Rook No. 17!
