DIY Spring Chick Placecard & Napkin Ring

A cute spring chick made from simple craft supplies serves as a fun holder for paper flag place cards on your Easter table.

Pair alongside a chick inspired napkin ring they'll have the kiddies giggling at the family table.


For Place Card

one large yellow pom pom
googly eyes
orange felt
orange chenille stem
yellow feathers
hot glue gun
miniature straw wreath

For Napkin Ring

Large yellow pom pom
Googly eyes
Orange felt
Orange chenille stems
Hot glue gun


For Place Card

Using a hot glue gun, attach two googly eyes and an orange felt triangle to one yellow pom pom.

Cut two pieces of orange chenille stem approximately 1 1/2 inches long bending about 1/2 inch of one end.

Glue pieces to the back of the yellow pom pom with the curved end facing toward the front.

Glue 4-5 yellow feathers above the chenille stems.

Cut a thin strip of paper from plain cardstock. We also cut inverted triangles in the ends to create a flag look.

Write guests name on the paper, place in the chick's legs and set the place card holder in a miniature wreath.

For Napkin Ring

Using a hot glue gun, attach two googly eyes and an orange felt triangle to one yellow pom pom.

Form a loop from one orange chenille stem by crossing the ends.

Twist the stem together to secure.

Glue this piece to the back of your yellow pom pom chick.

Pull a napkin through the loop. Wrap the ends of the chenille stem around the napkin, behind the pom pom.

Pull the ends forward underneath the pom pom so they resemble feet when placed right side up on the table.
