I’ve been loving all the moss & vine baskets I’ve been seeing lately (a sure sign it’s spring!), especially this one. When I was at Michaels recently, I spotted a small moss planter and thought it would be perfect to try a scaled down version to make an Easter basket.
I love how it turned it out, and it took less than 10 minutes to do! And I spent less than $5 – I used a coupon for the planter and got vines from my backyard (they also sell vines at craft stores if you can’t scavenge any).
What you need:
- moss planter basket (mine is from Michaels)*
- hot glue
* You can also use a plain basket and glue pieces of moss to the basket.
How to do it:
Trim some of the vines to the length you want your handle, twist those together. Holding the handle in place along the sides of the basket (if you can have someone help you, it’s a lot easier), take another piece of vine and wrap around the basket and handle, as many times as desired. Trim vine as needed and tuck the end underneath a part of the wrapped around vine. Secure with hot glue in a few places.
What do you use for Easter baskets – do you go big or small? Handmade or store bought? We’ve been using small felt baskets that I got at Target a few years ago for the boys, but I’m tempted to make them all these natural baskets and start using them!
