Have you planned your Easter tablescape yet? This year, I decided to incorporate some of my daughter's sweet artwork on the table. She loves finger painting (and I love Crayola's mess free color wonder system!) and has filled countless papers with her designs! I think she has a knack, don't you? :)
To add a special, personalized touch to our Easter table, I turned her masterpieces into egg-shaped place cards...and, I love how they turned out!
Kid's Art Into Easter Place Cards
- kid's artwork
- glue stick
- heavy cardstock in two coordinating colors
- small alphabet stamps and ink pad (I've got several stamp sets, all purchased at Target dollar spot, Michaels or Walmart)
Wanna do this with your kiddos artwork? It's super simple!
1) Let your little artist do their stuff 2) Cut an egg shape template from a section of the artwork. I just freehanded the first one and then used it as a template for the remaining eggs. 3) Using a glue-stick, glue each egg to a piece of heavy cardstock in a coordinating color. 4) Take a strip of an alternate colored cardstock and glue it to the middle of your egg (let it overlap the sides a bit) 5) Personalize the centers of each egg with tiny alphabet stamps 6) Finally, cut around the egg, removing the excess card stock.
That's it! Now you can display each egg in your favorite place card holder or simply place the egg on each plate. So simple and such a sweet touch!
I like how each egg is different!
To complete my tablescape, I placed some pretty succulents (which I can still use after Easter!) in a pretty bowl and then added kraft paper "grass" and faux speckled eggs around my succulent bowl. Seriously, how easy is that?!
Anyone else loving succulents right now? Best part...my not-so-green thumb might have a shot at keeping these pretties alive :)
