I seem to have an obsession of sorts with making little baskets using peat moss cups :) I've been doing different variations of them for years now. The first one I ever received using peat moss cups was made by my friend Liz, it was so sweet and simple with a handle made from a twig from a Bridal View Bush. I fell in love with it.
This first set below, are the ones I just did this week. They could be used for May Day basket also... or just any fun little Spring gift. I think they would be super cute with an actual starter plant in them.
For the Easter baskets below I used Crafty Secrets images from Easter Creative ScrapsThe tissue on the inside is old sewing patterns. Crepe and lace hot glued around the outside.
These were done with .
Birds and Blossoms Creative Scraps and Digital stamp from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage. I painted these peat moss cups with acrylic paint... not completely covering them.
The baskets below, I did for a post on the Fancy Pants Designs Blog back in 2012. There is a tutorial if you are interested Fancy This : Easter Baskets
Just another version with paper flowers . If you want to make handles like these you can use thin new branches from outside if they are bendable, or you can use pieces from a small grapevine wreath, like I did.
For this one I cut a paper border for the handle. You can see the entire Easter post here on the Vintage Street Market Blog
These pots I misted, and added glitter to the top edge. Natural look with moss, pain wood eggs and feathers.
You could also use these with name place cards at the Easter table. I'm using mine this year for a little gift for the moms that do all the cooking to make Easter dinner together happen. With my big family, that's quite a few. So looking forward to seeing family. Seems like it's been a long time since we were together at Thanksgiving. Should be about 35 of us. Those kids grow so fast. ( brace yourself... photo's coming :)
Wishing all of you a Happy Easter!
