As you know, I’m all about the non-traditional holiday decor, and these DIY faceted Easter egg place card holders are definitely a testament to that!
They’re not quite eggs, not quite all pastels, and there are no peeps to be found, but you can definitely just as cute if you ask me.
Plus you can make them as much or as little of an egg shape as you want in order to be able to reuse them for other gatherings, too.
Just looking out for your crafting well-being so you don’t have to slave over place card holders every time, unless you want to of course…
Place cards of your choice
Clay dedicated baking sheet
You’ll have to get a little creative on combining the clay colors to make the correct shades you want, but once you have the perfect colors, you’ll start by making an egg shape ball of clay.
Make the egg shape a bit bigger than you want the final place card holder to be since you’re go to cut it down some to make it faceted.
Using the straight edge, slice off small sections starting at the top and working your way down until you have faceted sides around the whole thing.
Next, place the shapes on a clay dedicated baking sheet, and bake according to the manufacturer’s instructions for the you’re using. Once they’ve hardened, remove from the oven, let cool, and then style them!

Fair warning: some of those are oldies, but goodies!
It’s kind of crazy to think that I’ve been blogging for so many years that old photography methods look ancient to me now!
For the actual cards themselves I just used cut out shapes from metallic gold paper and these 3d stickers to match.
Don’t these look adorable next to macarons (hint, hint)?! I love the way they turned out! Do any of you have staple Easter decor items that you use every year? These are definitely new on my list!
