A simple bunny place card project for your Easter table today. Gather up your scrap wood and make these super cute place card holders just in time for the holiday.
And surprise! The backs of the bunnies have fun fabric, you could even use cardstock or decoupage any bright colored paper:
I attached mini clothespins to the painted side and then inserted the names printed on cardstock:
Below are the step by step instructions to make these bunny place cards. Be sure to read through all steps before beginning and always follow all safety precautions.

- 1/2" mdf or plywood scraps
- 1x2 pine boards cut @ 4"l
- pastel bright colored spray paint
- cotton fabric scraps
- decoupage for fabric + brush
- small fabric scissors
- wood glue
- nailer and 1 1/4" finish nails
- super glue
- mini clothespins
Step 1: Cut out bunny heads from 1/2" mdf or plywood scraps. Search google for bunny head clip art, print out desired shape, cut out and trace onto scrap wood. Cut out using a scroll saw or jig saw and sand smooth.
Apply primer especially if using mdf as it wants to soak up all the paint. Spray paint front and sides with bright pastel colored gloss spray paint.
Step 2: Cut a piece of scrap fabric slightly larger than bunny head.
Step 3: Apply decoupage to back of bunny then lay fabric onto bunny and smooth in place. Let dry.
Step 4: Trim fabric as close to edge of bunny as possible. If your fabric starts to fray apply a small dab of decoupage to the cut edge.
Now print out the names onto cardstock, cut out and slip into clothespin. Self standing, so colorful and the cutest nod to Easter.
