easter critters place card holders

Prices may vary instore and online.
Step 1

Step 1 First, cut an 8" wire for each place card needed.

Step 2

Step 2 Hold one wire piece against your ring mandrel at about 2½" from one end.


Step 3

Step 3 Take the other end and wrap it around your ring mandrel twice to make the double loop that will hold your place cards.

TIP: Your wire ends should be pointing in opposite directions from each other.

Step 4

Step 4 Slide the wire off of the ring mandrel. Bend the non-wrapping wire end to a 90° at the intersection where the two wires cross, below the double loop.


Step 5

Step 5 Take the wrapping wire end and wrap it around the wire, below the double loop, two (or three) times.

TIP: This wire is tough so use needle nose pliers to wrap.

Step 6

Step 6 Trim the wrapped wire end and squeeze it so it is flush against the wire and shape the wire as needed.


Step 7

Step 7 Push the wire end of your place card holder into the foam head of your Easter critter.


Step 8

Step 8 Make one for each place card needed and set aside.


Step 9

Step 9 Click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™. Design your guest’s names and attached them to the shapes; then let your Cricut® machine use the calligraphy pen to write on cardstock and cut out the place cards for you.

TIP: If you do not have a Cricut® machine available, find a shape you like and trace it onto white cardstock, then cut out. You can use the Gold calligraphy pen to hand-write your guest’s names.

Step 10

Step 10 Slide your place card into the double loop wire and set out on your Easter table.
