These natural little Easter baskets are quick and easy to make, and you might find you already have all the needed materials on hand.
The base is a basic peat pot, the handle is bark-covered wire, and the “Easter grass” is just sphagnum moss, all easily found at your local garden or craft store.
To begin, cut a 6-inch length of bark covered wire and form it into a handle. Use an awl to carefully punch a hole in two opposite sides of a small peat pot, centering the holes near the top.
Going from the outside in, thread the ends of the wire through the holes. Bend the wire ends to secure.
Fill your basket with Sphagnum moss, and drop in a small, potted Echiveria, an Easter egg, or a few wrapped candies.
Place one at each place setting at your Easter brunch table, cluster together a few baskets of varied sizes to make a lovely spring display, or hang on your Easter tree.
If you’ve put a plant in your pot, be sure to place a saucer beneath it before watering.
