Many Easter celebrations are centered around a family gathering and meal. Family gatherings can be both joyous and stressful. Everyone knows if Uncle Chuck and Aunt Evelyn sit next to each other at dinner, they will be arguing politics for the rest of the day. This situation can be easily and cutely avoided using place cards. Place cards also add a little bit of elegance to your Easter dinner. So, follow this tutorial to enjoy a beautiful and peaceful Easter dinner.
- Cut a 12” piece of ribbon.
- Fold the ribbon is the right sides are facing in and the fold is at the bottom. Cut a V out of the open side of the ribbon through both layers about 2” down.
- Run a seam down the two long sides of the folded ribbon just inside the wire. The seam should run from the bottom of the V to the fold ribbon.
- Flip the project right side out.
- Place about 3 marbles or a stone in the bottom. This will help it stand up and balance. Fill the remainder of the bunny with rice until you are about ½” below the bottom of the V.
- Cut a piece of twine. Tie it around the bunny right at the top of your rice and the bottom of the V.
- Make place cards by the method of your choice, and place each card in between the two layers of ribbon that create the bunny’s ears and enjoy a well seated table.
