Hello friends, Latisha here! Today I am sharing with you a really inexpensive and creative way to dress up your table for Easter.
I saw these candy skewers that were being sold at the grocery store for quite a bit of money. Looking at them, it was a split second decision
knowing they could be made for cheap. To start with, find marshmallow candies, and wooden skewers.
Gather a metal tin, paper filling, a strong glue dot, and a candy skewer. Place the large glue dot and the bottom of the tin. This will keep the
skewer from slipping around. Once you fill the tin with the paper filling, it will keep the skewer from falling over. To embellish the skewer, I added a butterfly diecut from Lawn Fawn. It is the perfect touch.
Fill a bowl up with candy. Stamp a sentiment onto pattern paper, trim and then adhere to a lollypop stick. Stick into the bowl of candy. And now you have a fun sentiment for the table to see.
Stamp another sentiment onto pattern paper as well as Easter Bunnies from the Lawn Fawn Eggstra Amazing Easter stamp set. The bunnies were stamped, cut out and then placed into the frosting, and the sentiment was placed onto a lollypop stick.
Make several place settings using the skewers and tins. Top the tins with candy for an extra little treat.
At the grocery store, you can typically find fresh flowers, 3 bunches for $10. This is a way to bring more life to the table. Add in a tiny bit of
red food coloring to the flowers water in the wine glasses for an added touch.
Materials Used: Lawn Fawn Eggstra Amazing Easter stamp set; Lawn Fawn Pop Up Butterfly Die; Lawn Fawn Spiffy Speckles Petite paper pad;
Lawn Fawn Mermaid ink; Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Large Adhesive Dots; Doodlebug Design Heart Enamel Stickers
These skewers have butterflies at the bottom, but a fun touch would be to letter someone’s name onto cardstock and add it to the bottom of the candies for a personalized place setting.
Happy Easter from all of us at Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine!
