Hello & Happy New Week! Sometimes inspiration strikes with the most unusual items. I went to the German dollar store here and was going in for some Easter grass for my kindergarten class. As I walked through the aisles, I spotted a pack of 20 peat pots for 1€! I knew I had to repurpose them into cute peat pot easter baskets!
These are so easy too! I had them all done in like 15 minutes! And because I couldn’t decide on a style, I made two versions!
Cute Bunny Peat Pot Easter Baskets
*Affiliate links used to show like or similar products.
What I have used for the vintage bunny Easter baskets:
glue & scissors
leather straps [mine are from an old purse I cut up]
soft pink Easter jute grass for filling
small plastic bird eggs for filling
1. Print and cut out your free bunny labels.
2. If your leather straps are too floppy, cut them about 15-17 cm or depending on your pots.
3. Apply glue to one side and fold it over, press firmly. Now they should be holding up nicely as a handle. If your leather is already pretty firm, no need for this step, just cut the straps shorter, depending on your pots.
4. Glue your bunny labels on to the pots using a regular glue stick.
5. Using hot glue, stick on each leather handle on the inside of the pot.
6. Fill with Easter grass and goodies!!
Eventually these little baskets will be filled with chocolate eggs, but until then, little plastic bird eggs do the trick!
Minimal Sharpie Peat Pot Easter Baskets
If you like it a little more neutral, then these next peat pot Easter basket coming up might be just right for you!!
What I have used for the minimal marker – beads baskets:
peat pots [see link above]
white feathers for filling
small plastic bird eggs for filling [see link above]
1. Using a white sharpie, start doodling designs onto your pot. You might want to doodle a few ideas on a paper before, to see how you like them.
2. Cut a piece of wire depending on your pot and how long you want your handle to be. Mine is approx. 10 cm long.
3. Add your beads onto the wire. Leave space on both ends.
4. Using the wire, poke holes on both sides of the pot and push the wire through, then twist the ends to stay put.
5. Fill your basket with feathers and eggs or goodies!
Pin this for later!!
Well, what do you think?? I love these cute little baskets and how inexpensive they were to make. I know my daughters will love them too. You can make these in so many different styles too, using other material for the handle, maybe thick wool or twine in different colors, you name it. I hope you like these and Thank you for stopping by!!
