I wanted to so some sort of Easter project this month, so I decided I wanted to decorate some eggs. But along with the eggs you need a basket, too!
I thought about making my own basket, but why reinvent the wheel when there are already tons of great tutorials out there!? I found this cute basket tutorial HERE.
I used some of the White Elegance collection from SEI to create the basket. It was actually really simple to do. I changed things up just a bit by adding just one handle out of paper, and the rim is a bit different, too.
To make the "grass" I cut up some light green tissue paper into strips and sprayed it was some darker green "Tumble Dry" spray from SEI. You can use this spray on ANYTHING, including to dye fabric (you have to heat set it I think). But it also works just like a spray mist.
The eggs are paper mache and I bought them at Hobby Lobby. I painted each white and then sprayed them with some mists and added some paper punched embellishments from the Couture line, along with some pearls and bling. I added a few coats of Mod Podge to make sure they'd stay pretty! :)
I really love this little basket and it now sits on our kitchen table and looks so springy!!!
PLEASE stop by the SEI blog and leave a comment if you have time (and/or one here, too!). Thank you wonderful blog followers!
