Cute Peat Pot Easter Baskets 2 Ways!

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:

peat pots 

free printable vintage bunny labels

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

 

Instructions:

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]

wire & wire cutter 

small wooden beads 

white feathers for filling

small plastic bird eggs for filling [see link above]

 

Instructions:

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!

I hope you like these and Thank you for stopping by!!

    How does one even begin to choose between these two versions? When I saw the first ones with the bunny and the pink Easter grass, I fell in love and then………. you shared how to do a beaded version too. Love how beautiful the beads look with the peat pots and they would be perfect for herb planters when Easter’s all done. Pinned

    Both versions are sweet, I really adore the vintage bunnies, but have never thought of using feathers in a basket. So soft and bright white. I really like them both. Pinning.

    Katrin you have given us an abundance of inspiration. I think the pink is such a sweet look because of its soft look. But the beads are also very pretty. Can I have both?
