As a crafter for many years, of course I love Martha Stewart. She really is a creative genius. I seriously can spend hours browsing her website. So when Ariel from PMQ for two mentioned hosting a Martha Stewart Inspired Easter Basket Challenge, I jumped at the chance to be included. Basically we were to make a Martha Stewart “worthy” Easter Basket. Here is what I came up with:
This Easter Basket was so fun to create and reminded me of why I fell in love with crafting in the first place.
Large flat bottom Basket
10″ Daffodil Plant
6″ Tulip Plant
4″ Gerbera Daisy Plant
4″ Violet Plant
Silk Flowers for handle
Straw Bunny, moss bunny stick and decorative eggs
Moss & Floral Foam
The moss roll they sell now is my new favorite thing. It’s perfect to wrap around clay pots, candles or in this case, the basket.
Floral foam was added to the basket for support and to give height to the flowers.
The pots were added first in the four corners, then I filled the basket with moss and added all kinds of goodies, like the adorable straw bunny peaking out. I printed a pretty Easter graphic from Graphics Fairy, my favorite blog for free vintage printables.
The gorgeous basket was $4 at the thrift store. What a score! I wrapped the handle in Ribbon then wove flowers through it.
There are ceramic bunnies and gold leaf eggs throughout. The flowers can be planted once they are done blooming.
The basket can be reused and filled with Summer plants for a gorgeous centerpiece outside.
Be sure to check out the other bloggers to see what they have created. You will love them! I think Martha herself would say “it’s a very good thing” 😀
