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.

The Easter Tree

Where I grew up, the Easter tree was almost as important as the Christmas tree. Well, almost. But I still can’t survive an Easter without one. My mom has carefully saved our homemade blown and dyed eggs over the years, so that when I visit for Easter I’m sure to find some of the same old eggs hanging on her flowering forsythia branches.
