These Easter Egg Place Card Holders are easy to create and would make a whimsical addition to your Easter table. Here’s how to make them!
Easter Egg Place Card Holders
Supplies (contains affiliate links)
- Smoothfoam 3″ Eggs
- Craft knife or foam cutter
- Paint (I used chalk-based paint but you can also use acrylic paint)
- Baker’s twine
- 3/4″ Round hole punch
- Xyron 1.5-inch Create-A-Sticker
- Wood disks
- White glue
Take an egg and cut off the bottom with a craft knife or foam cutter, so it can sit on its own.
Then, cut a slit on the top, where you’ll insert a place card. Make it about 1/2 an inch deep by about 1 inch wide.
Now, paint the eggs in different colors and allow to dry. I inserted skewers into them so I could paint them without holding the actual egg. The skewers also helped in the drying process, allowing me to dry them in a jar. I painted two coats of chalk-based paint.
While the paint dried, I started creating my embellishments. Here’s how I made these swirly stickers (though you can use any embellishments you like). First, I ran a cardstock circle through my Xyron sticker maker to add adhesive to one side.
Then, begin applying the twine along the edge of the circle, going round and round until you reach the middle.
When you get to the middle, cut off the twine and try to tuck in the end into the middle of your swirl. You can apply a little bit of glue to the end to avoid fraying.
Last step is to run the swirl through the Xyron again, to apply adhesive to the back of the cardstock circle, making it a sticker! I made six per egg in different colors.
Finally, apply some white glue to the bottom of the egg and attach a wood disk, to serve as a stand. All done with the egg!
I made some twine-trimmed place cards to go with the swirl stickers. I ran some twine through the Xyron and stuck it along the edge of some cardstock. Then I tied a separate bow and used glue to attach it at the top.
All done. So fun to make and so easy as well. And I’m slightly addicted to making those swirly stickers!
These are perfect for an Easter brunch, or you can use them along your buffet table with names of the different dishes you’re serving.
