FAMILY FRIENDLY DIY SPRING PLACECARD HOLDER
Easter may have a completely different look for some of us this year. So, why not do what I did and create something pretty for your table with this family-friendly #stayhome tablescape craft!
Today’s post is going to be a quick and easy one, so let’s get to it!
The inspiration for my Easter mod podge pot placecard came from my dear friend, Crissy from First Day of Home. I had seen a decoupage pot in the background of one of Crissy’s photos, and I asked her if she had a DIY for it. Her large decoupage outdoor pots are lovely, don’t you agree?

What You’ll Need
You only need a few items to make these spring or Easter Mod Podge terra cotta pot placecard holders (that’s just a mouthful, isn’t it?)
- 3″ Terra Cotta Pots (I couldn’t find the right size plates for underneath, but I would have made them if they were available)
- Mod Podge Matte Finish
- White Chalkpaint or Acrylic Paint (I would purchase 1 bottle for 2-3 pots)
- Paint Brush
- Pretty Spring Napkins (choose something with a white background)
How to Make Spring Decoupage Placecard Holders
These really are quite easy to make!
- Paint your terra cotta pots 2-3 times each. (I didn’t paint the bottoms and only painted a little inside the rim of the pots.)
- Separate your napkins by gently pulling the top layer from the bottom layer. You only want to use the printed ply.
- Tear your printed napkin around the printed area… this makes it less visible when you apply it to the pot.
- Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the pot and then apply the napkin… be careful, it’s not easy to move after you place it (dang near impossible).
- Apply another thin coat of Mod Podge on top of the napkin.
- Trim and fold the napkin around the bottom edge and over the top edge of the pot and add more Mod Podge.
And that’s it!
You can be creative with how you add the napkin. On this one, I had the print come from the bottom and the top. Another one, it came all from the bottom and left the edge all white, and another one from the top and left the bottom all white!

Let’s Style Our Spring Mod Podge Pot Placecard Holders
Adding a simple bit of moss and a succulent (real or faux) makes for a pretty accessory to the table!
Add a simple name card to the decoupage terra cotta pot to make it more personal.
Yes, I know this is April… but grandson #2’s name is August! 😉
To give this a bit more of an Easter look… add an egg! If you don’t have time to color an egg (are you lookin’ at me?), simply add some twine! (Even rustic twine would look neat!)
After you’re all done with using them for the family Easter table, make a little seasonal vignette!
