Set the table with a fabric flower place card holder this spring!

I recently made a fabric flower centerpiece to decorate with for spring or Easter. Now let’s make some pretty fabric flower place card holders to finish the table setting with! I like to set the table for my family even when no one is coming over for dinner. Not every night, of course, but it’s fun to celebrate days like the first day of spring or a great report from school with a “fancy” table setting at home.

Step one:  Die cut the petals from the Oly*Fun fabric.  To replicate the colors of real helleborus flowers I used Jelly, Brick, and Kiwi.

Step four:  Begin to assemble the flower by adding a dot of hot glue to the end of a toothpick.  Wrap the yellow piece around the toothpick and and hot glue the end in place.  Hot glue one petal on at a time, then add the two leaves as pictured.

Step five:  I like to save foam scraps from my upholstery projects for things like this.  Cut a small piece of foam to place inside the basket.  Cover the foam with Spanish Moss.

Step six:  Press the sharp end of the toothpicks into the foam to hold the flowers in place.  Add a chalkboard tag to write the guest’s name on.
