DIY Easter Special: Table Place Holders
Easter is just a couple days away, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have any time to make some more decorative pieces to set up with the rest of your holiday décor. In fact, a quick and fun project like this one might be just what you need to bring your family together and have some fun for the holiday!
Making your own table place holders might seem like a lot of work in addition to trying to color eggs and all those other fun Easter traditions, but this project doesn't take that much time to complete. If you follow these simple steps, you'll be able to be done in no time and have a set of wholly customized place holders for your family this Easter.
Doesn’t that sound like fun?
Then let’s get started:
- You’re going to need a few things for your project first. A few of our Easter Chickadee Pots depending on how many of these you plan on making, an equal number of plastic spoons, sandpaper, Easter grass, cardstock, a hot glue gun, and some acrylic paint.
- Now that you have everything you need start by gently sanding down the spoons. You want to remove the shine to give them a rougher, less artificial appearance to them. Then dust off any particulates left and paint them with whatever colors you want. Once you have your spoons painted, you can add a pair of eyes and smile to give them that whimsical appearance.
- With the spoons ready you can get to work on the Chickadee Pots themselves. As with the spoons you just painted, you’re going to paint the pots, most likely with matching color schemes and designs to bring their appearance together.
- Take your cardstock and cut it into small strips, write your family’s names onto them and then hot glue them to the spoons. With that done, start packing your pots with Easter grass. You’re going to need quite a bit, but once you’ve done that, you can place your painted spoon into the grass and set it so that it stands up straight.
With that last step, this project is complete!
Not only did that not take much time, you now have your very own personalized Easter decorations that you'll be able to enjoy for years to come. You even got to enjoy the time you spent working on them alongside your family as you each made your own customized decoration. You might also find that you enjoyed the time working with them more than the project itself.
