Completely Colorful Easter Placecard Holders


  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Egg, 3"
  • Mini pink/yellow ranunculus
  • Bright green reindeer moss, small amount
  • Silver craft wire, 20-gauge
  • Paper, one sheet each: bright pink/multi-floral print tissue; pink card stock
  • Fine-line black permanent marker
  • Ruler
  • Small disposable bowl
  • Plastic spoon
  • Water basin
  • Paper towels
  • Waxed paper
  • Scissors
  • Wire cutters
  • Long-nose pliers
  • Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Optional: disposable gloves; hair dryer


  1. Tear tissue paper into several approximately 2" pieces.
  2. Mix one part white glue with two parts water in disposable bowl. If desired, put on gloves.
  3. Dip one tissue piece into glue/water mixture and then smooth onto surface of foam egg. Continue until egg is completely covered, allowing tissue pieces to wrinkle and overlap. Repeat for all eggs. Place eggs on waxed paper to dry overnight or use hair dryer.
  4. Cut 7" length from wire. Bend one end into tight spiral using pliers, leaving opposite end straight.

These egg placeholders are very pretty, and I especially love ranunculus flowers! A variation for this project would be to use one color tissue paper and an accent of gold pen in little swirls here and there after the egg is completely dry. OT try gluing in some ric rac or beaded trim in a wavy pattern encircling the egg! Put a little gem on the name tag too! This would make a lovely party or dinner favor for your guests to take home too! So pretty... Thanks for sharing!
