Crafty Little Easter Baskets

I wanted to show you a few of the little Easter baskets I crafted this year.  They were so simple and easy to make. (Just click on the picture for a larger view).

Can you guess what the basket's are made from?  They're little peat pots that you can buy at the Dollar Store.  You get about 5 or 6 in the package.  I quickly painted them with some acrylics I had.  While they were drying I clipped some copies from vintage books to add.  I just brushed some modge podge on the pot and then the back of the paper.  After putting them on the pot I covered it all in more modge podge, sprinkling glitter on top.  Everything looks better with glitter.
I gathered some crape paper on the sewing machine and hot glued it around the inside rim.  Next is the easy to do handle.  I took my handy dandy hole punch and made a hole in each side.  A silver pipe cleaner with some bead made the perfect handle. 
Add some grass and a few tidbits and there you go.  Quick and easy!  What did you make for Easter?

Have a blessed day y'all!
