here's a quick project to add sweet smiles to your Easter tablescape: 
make plain old napkins new: fold them into bunny ear shapes!
so easy the kids can do it - and they're sure to giggle the whole time!

you can make bunny ear napkins using just about anything:
fabric napkins, tea towels, paper napkins, salvaged quilt squares - any fabric you can scrounge up!.
the only other things you'll need are some ribbon or twine to tie them, 
and one fluffy white pom pom for each napkin.

instructions, from left:
lay a square napkin flat on the table - if it's printed, print faces down.
fold two corners in to touch points in the center. then fold each side again, toward the middle.
fold each side one more time, toward the middle. (you've folded each side THREE times now)
fold one side on top of the other, to create a 'tube' shape with angled ends.
one side is 'open' - where you can see both edges that have folded. the other side is 'closed'.
(in my photo above, the closed edge is on the right side...)

*NOTE: as i fold, i run my finger firmly along the fold to crease it. it helps it hold the shape better in the end.

instructions, from left:
bend the 'tube' in half, with the 'closed edge' facing up toward you.
tie a bit of bakers' twine or ribbon around the whole napkin as shown above.
add a fluffy white pom pom to make a bunny tail by sitting it on the bottom 'u' of the napkin.
.
that's it! you're done!

napkins can be laid on / beside the plate at each placesetting, 
or popped into clear glasses to hold them upright - as shown below:
