This Easter napkin ring starts with potatoes. Yep, potatoes! We're using an old-school potato stamp to create the colorful Easter eggs. Tuck the finished eggs into "grass" napkin rings made from strips of decorative paper and you've got the cutest Easter place setting we've ever seen.
What You'll Need:
- Assorted green cardstock
- Double-sided tape
- Crafts knife or wood-carving tools
- Sponge paintbrush
- Crafts paint in assorted colors
- White cardstock
Step 1: Make the Grass Ring
Cut one 7×2-inch strip from two colors of green cardstock (one of each color). Fringe one edge of each 7-inch strip, leaving ½ inch along the bottom uncut. Snip off bits of fringe to make it slightly uneven. Use double-sided tape to attach strips one on top of the other. Form a ring and secure with tape, overlapping 1/4 inch. Set aside.
Step 2: Create the Eggs
Cover surface with newspaper. Cut potatoes in half at an angle so the cut face resembles an egg shape. Using a crafts knife or carving tools, carve shallow designs on cut face. Blot with paper towel to dry. Repeat as desired.
Using sponge brush, apply paint to carved potato. Stamp onto white cardstock. Repeat using various colors and let dry. Cut out stamped egg shapes. Weave between paper blades of grass.
