Well Easter is just around the corner. I was needing something to bring a little fun and color to my Easter table. I decided I could make some Easter Egg Place mats out of felt. They were so easy and I actually had all the supplies on hand so it didn’t cost me anything, but I think the cost would be minimal if you had to buy the supplies.
Let’s get started.
You’ll need:Wool Felt Central) glue gun or craft glue (the kids can make these if you use the craft glue) ribbon
I started out by cutting my felt into an oval egg shape. You could leave the felt in a square if you wanted and make some cute place mats that way.
Then pull out your ribbon and run it across your felt. I liked to move it around and see how I liked it best. I also left a little excess on both sides to make sure I had enough.
I got this ribbon from SEI Chick-a-Dee collection. Love their stuff. It’s so cute and worked great with my Easter decor.
I then got my trusty glue gun out and began gluing the ribbon down. Be careful not to get your fingers too bad. It’s easy to do with ribbon.
Then I cut the ribbon so that it was nice and even with the place mat.
Then…Ta-Dah! A new placemat for your Easter/Spring feast.
You could use felt pieces to decorate and even let the kids give this a try while you are making dinner.
Send us pictures if you give this a try. I would love to see what you all come up with.
Nikkala and I shared these on Utah’s CBS affiliate, KUTV’s Fresh Living program on Monday, April 18. Click on the link if you want to see the project put together in real time.
