Easter Place Setting

26 Mar

I had so much fun making the Easter place settings last year that I decided to take it up a notch this year. I’m giddy at how cute they turned out. You know that feeling when you start to dream up a creative idea and all you can do is hope it turns out as good in real life as it looks in your head? That was this project. And I am not disappointed! Let me show you my Easter place settings for this year:

Easter Place SettingThere are two parts to this place setting. First is the name place card. Second is the utensil/napkin roll up. Here is what you’ll need to do both of these:
2″ Terra Cotta Pot
4″ Terra Cotta Base
Paint (I used white, black, and pink)
Ribbon
Paper (or felt) for the ears
Jelly Beans
Orange Napkins
Green utensils

You can basically play out where I used all of the items listed, but just to cover my bases this is what I did. Paint your terra cotta pot and base white. The pot eventually ends up upside down on the base, creating the bunny head. Using paint chips (I love those- free thick paper scraps!), I cut out ears using “fine china” and “watermelon pink” (in case you like what you see ;)). I hot glued them to the top of my terra cotta pot, and added a little ribbon bow for girly character. Next, I used my silhouette to create the face and name, but you could easily paint this as well. The bunny face is design #8219 by Samantha Walker (which by the way, comes as two bunnies- male and female- not just the face as I used it). The name is done in the font “Lavanderia” which took me forever to find the download for free so it makes this font even more of a treasure to me.ย

I added the pink cheeks and nose to the bunny- and once all the paint was dry, I placed my pot on top of the base. Surrounding the pot is jelly beans- adds a fun treat while guests wait for dinner to begin!

For the Carrot Utensils, it’s as easy as it looks. Wrap your green utensils in the orange napkin, and tie it off with a ribbon. I made sure my fork stuck out the most and on top, because it resembled the carrot top the most.

Not only did this project turn out so adorable (in my book… what do you think though?), but it was SO cheap!

Here’s the price list (everything was purchased at Wal-mart, not to toot their horn, just fact):
2″ Terra Cotta pot – 23 cents
4″ Terra Cotta base- 78 cents
Paint Chip Paper Scraps- free
Orange Napkins- 97 cents a package
Green Utensils- 97 cents a package
Jelly Beans- 99 cent egg filler, and I only used 1/3 of what it came with
Ribbon and paint I had on hand.

    These are so adorable! We don’t really have a special dinner at our house, but I’d definitely make a a family set just to use as decorations!

      You could make it a mantel piece using bigger terra cotta pots! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Those are so adorable. I love it. I used to use clay pots a lot doing crafts years ago. Brought back memories.
