I saw these on Oh Happy Day a little while back and thought they’d make a neat place marker. So in the midst of running out apartment hunting (yay, moving again!), I churned out nine of these for our Easter dinner.
I picked up some wee hollow chocolate animals. Hollow is key.
Then I cut out conversation bubbles from two pieces of scrap book paper and grabbed a stencil to do the names.
I also used some foil stars I had leftover from being a professor (no matter the age, all students love a sticker for good work!).
Then you need some glue and some floral wire.
Cut the wire so it will fit all the way through your chocolate animal — it will need to stabilize itself at the bottom — and all the way through your conversation bubble.
Glue your two conversation bubbles together over the wire and jam it into your animal’s head.
You may need to move the wire around a bit to get it steady but you’ll find the right spot. I stored mine in a plastic container until I was ready to use them as place markers.
