ETSY CRAFT PARTY : DIY place card holders!

From June 17 to 19, it's time to celebrate the creativity around the world, in occasion of Etsy birthday!
Share all your craft creations around the world by tagging them with #etsycraftparty.

I want to share a lovely tutorial to make beautiful place card holders, perfect for a wedding, a spring party, a birthday, a baby shower... a cute idea you can realize if you are planning to participate to a craft event or if you will make a creative project at your home.

Spring place card holders


- Scraps of felt in different colors
- Hot glue gun
- Scissors
- Small straw hats
- Needle and thread
- Cardboard

1- Cut 2 stripes of felt, one to fix around the small hat with hot gun and another to make a bow

2- Fix the bow on the back of the hat with the hot glue (be careful not to burn yourself!)



Cut a stripe of felt, 1.2" wide and 4" long

Bend it

Start rolling it to make the centre of the rose

Fix it with hot glue

Cut the petals, you will need 8 petals to make two roses, you don't have to be precise while you're cutting the petals, they will look good anyway

Fix all the 4 petals around the rose with hot glue

A very cute rose is ready!


Cut a stripe of felt 1.2" wide and 9.5" long, cut some triangle shapes as in the following picture

It's the time to use needle and thread to curl up the stripe, to create the sunflower

Cut a round shape from the brown felt and fix it in the centre of the sunflowers with hot glue


This is the shape to cut from the green felt to make the roses leaves

Fix it under the rose with the hot glue

For the sunflower

Fix all the flowers and leaves on the small hat as you prefer and add the cardboard with the name
