These springy, monogrammed place cards are so charming and easy to make you’ll want to host Easter brunch for the whole flock!
Materials (for each place card)
2½” craft nest
.5 ounces Light Blue Pearl Sculpey polymer clay
White craft paint
1½” alphabet rubberstamps
White iridescent glitter, ultra fine
Hot glue and glue gun
1. To create each egg, start by kneading the polymer clay to soften it. Then roll the clay in the palms of your hands to make a ball. Pinch one end of the ball and manipulate the shape to form an egg. Make as many eggs as you’ll need for your brunch.
2. Bake the eggs in the oven for 15 minutes at 275 degrees (or follow the directions on the polymer clay package). Let the eggs cool.
3. To create the monogram on the egg, dab a rubberstamp letter with white craft paint using the sponge paintbrush. Stamp the egg by holding it horizontally in one hand and pressing the bottom edge of the stamp against the egg. Roll the stamp against the egg’s surface being careful not to let the stamp slide. (If it slides, just wipe the paint off the egg with a paper towel and try again!)
4. While the paint is wet, sprinkle the stamped letter with the iridescent glitter. Let the monogram dry. Use the small paintbrush to brush away any stray glitter. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to monogram all the eggs.
5. Finally, hot glue each egg into a craft nest with the monogram facing out. Set a nest on each plate atop the napkin for a darling place card that doubles as an Easter favor.
Branch Out: To add a little floral flair, attach a 6” faux branch, complete with green buds and leaves, to the bottom of each nest with brown wire.
