Natural Foliage Easter Basket

Overview

Step 1

An Easter basket doesn't have to be just for kids. Use natural elements to turn a thrift shop basket into unique, elegant, and functional decor that will look lovely in your home throughout the whole spring season.

Materials Needed

Step 1

For this project you will need a basket with a handle, green spray paint, one package of mixed crafting moss, one bunch of foam berries and a glue gun.

Cover Basket with Moss

Step 1

Cover the basket with a coat of spray paint and let dry completely. Glue moss to the outside of the basket, working with just a little moss at a time. Do not cover the inside of the handle with moss. Trim any excess moss hanging out if necessary.

Cut Berries

Step 1

Snip off a handful of small clusters of foam berries.

Add Berry Clusters

Step 1

Glue foam berry clusters in a random pattern to the basket and handle.

Decorate with Single Berries

Step 1

Finish by gluing on single berries here and there between the clusters.

Present

Step 1

All done! Fill with eggs, fresh flowers, or lay a tea towel inside and serve warm rolls for Easter dinner.
