Chalkboard Easter Egg Place Cards



These chalkboard egg place cards are an easy, inexpensive, and fun way to decorate your Easter table. 

For this project you will need: 
plastic eggs
chalkboard paint
ribbon


Simply paint the eggs with a couple of coats of the chalkboard paint and let dry.  Use the ribbon to cover up the seam where each egg half joins together.


After your Easter table is set, write the names of your guests on each egg and place at each table setting.


This project was free for me because I already had all of the supplies on hand.  However, here is a little cost projection for you in case you do not have any of these items in your home already.

Plastic Easter Eggs from Target, Walmart, or the Dollar Store:  $1.98 or less
Chalkboard Paint from the Home Depot:  $4.98
Ribbon from Michaels:  $3.00 or less
Estimated total cost:  $9.96
(Obviously, the cost amount of this project is subject to what you are willing to spend or what is available to you at each store).

There you have it!  Have you completed any Easter or spring projects lately?  Let me know because I would love to see them!

Have a wonderful Monday!
