Easter Egg Place Card Holders

This place card holder is easy, fun, and perfect for your Easter table. It's a Good Thing.

Materials

  • Colored paper
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Pencil
  • Fringe scissors
  • Permanent tape roller
  • Ribbon
  • Floral butterfly on wire, or other embellishments
  • Hard-boiled egg
  • Nontoxic pen or marker

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Cut an 8-by-1 1/2-inch strip from colored paper. Draw a pencil line down the length of the strip, 1 inch from one long side. Make a mark 4 1/2 inches from one end of the strip.

  2. Step 2

    Cut a 1-inch fringe with fringe scissors, using the pencil line as a guide, along the entire length of the strip.

  3. Step 3

    Using the tape roller, apply adhesive from the 4 1/2-inch mark to the end of the strip in the area that is not fringed. Coil the strip, creating a cylinder.

  4. Step 4

    Bend and fray the ends of fringe to look like grass. Tie a ribbon around the base of the cup.

  5. Step 5

    Use a glue gun to attach a butterfly on a wire or other embellishments (flowers, bumblebees, etc.) to the inside of the cup.

  6. Step 6

    Write guest's name on hard-boiled egg with a pen or marker. Place egg in holder.
