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:

large felt squares (for a fun variety of colors go visit Wool Felt Central)
glue gun or craft glue (the kids can make these if you use the craft glue)

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.
