Easter is less than a week away…are you ready? I’m not quite ready, but I’m getting there!
Does your family have some Easter traditions that you’ve developed over the years? We usually celebrate Easter with an Easter egg hunt for the kids and a big dinner with our extended family. So I thought it would be fun to make some cute place card holders for the kids. They LOVE finding their name and where to sit at the dinner table.
1. Small terra cotta pot and base
2. Acrylic paints
3. Sponge brush
5. M&M’s or other small candies
6. Chalkboard clothespins
7. Plastic egg
Step 1 – Paint your pot & base. Use two coats of paint allowing 1 hour to dry in between coats.
Step 2 – Cut wheatgrass to fit the size of your pot and place in pot.
Step 3 – Place pot on painted base and add candies, chalkboard tag and plastic egg.
Now you have a fun, quick and easy place card holder for Easter!
A few little hints: I found wheatgrass at my local grocery store, but Whole Foods carries it as well. And if you don’t have the chalkboard clothespin tags laying around your house, you can either write directly on the pot with chalk or simply print out a cute tag (like these from Wanessa Carolina Creations) and attach it with a clothespin.
How will you be celebrating Easter this year?
P.S. If you’re looking for some great spring printables, I’ve rounded up the best of the best. Stop by and check them out!
