Adorably Cute Easter Tablescape Using Dollar Tree Exclusively & a Place Card Holder DIY

Easter will be here before we know it. Can you believe how fast this year is flying by? Last year before our move to the new house, I found adorable spring plates at Dollar Tree and I created some cute little Easter place settings using them.

I didn’t get the full tablescape set up since we had boxes everywhere, but I’ve been saving the photos of the impromptu place settings for this year. Hopefully I’ll find the plates and create a full tablescape. Until then, I thought I would share how to put together an adorable tablescape this Easter using these Dollar Tree place settings.

Supplies for cute Dollar Tree Easter place settings:

  • floral dinner plates
  • floral salad plates
  • my bunny rope placemat tutorial
  • mini metal pails
  • fat quarter of fabric (Yes! At Dollar Tree!)
  • mini faux eggs
  • ribbon
  • cardstock
Supplies for Easter place card holders: Dollar Tree metal pails, scissors, ribbon, plastic bag, and speckled eggs.

Make the place card holders.

I sent the hubs to Dollar Tree for something, which I do all the time, and he came home with extras, like he does all the time. (Then he wonders why my craft room is exploding!) He got these little mini pails that came in a three pack. They were adorable, so I decided to use them in my Dollar Tree Easter place settings.

Bad news. They didn’t have any more of them in the store and there’s four of us! AGH! SO, I made three Easter pails and used a cross that they had in the store on my place setting. News for the wise- buy doubles of everything at Dollar Tree!

To keep you from wasting a bunch of moss, cut up a plastic bag or something like it and place it inside your metal pails.

Add in some moss, then top with some small faux eggs.

Now you want to keep the handles of the pails up, so use pliers to clamp the metal tight on the sides.

Squeezing the handle on a mini metal pail to keep it upright.

Finally, make some cute little bows and glue them in the center of the handles.

Make fabric napkins for your Easter place settings.

I promised you a full place setting from Dollar Tree, and I keep my word! You can even have fabric napkins from Dollar Tree. I purchased pink and blue fat quarters, then cut each one in half to use on all four of our place settings. I folded them into triangles to place under the pails.

Make some cute place cards.

I used my Cricut and two pieces of cardstock to cut four rectangles and each of our names. When they were cut, I glued them together.

Video Tutorial

Here’s a quick video tutorial that I made for my Easter bunny placemats. At the end I added the plates and other items on top of it. If you like the full place setting, be sure to go and pin the bunny placemat tutorial as well!

Finally, assemble your Easter place settings with your Dollar Tree items!

I placed my bunny placemats down first, then added my floral plates on top of them. Next went my triangle napkins, Easter pails place card holders, which held up my DIY place cards.

I didn’t have much unboxed, so I didn’t do a full tablescape with table runners and decor, but this did the trick for the moment.
