Easy Easter Baskets

Hey all!  Welcome to the Spring Blog Hop.  If you’ve just come from Amanda’s blog, you’re in the right place!  If you don’t know what I’m on about, click here to get started.

I decided to get a head start on my Easter Baskets for my sister and her husband.  We don’t have any children of the right age to do a big egg hunt, or something.  My one and only nephew is only 7 months old.  So there’s no need for a big basket.  Instead, I picked up some cheap foam baskets at Target.

From start to finish, it took me about an hour and a half to go from plain foam to decorated.  I used stickers for the yellow one to create a garden, and punched out a bunch of butterflies for the pink one.  Then I cut swatches of ribbon and stitched them on in a cluster.  The bit that took the longest was stitching the ribbons on.  If I had a stapler, I’d have used that.  This project was all about speed.  I’ve been incredibly busy, so I just didn’t have the time to spend on elaborate Easter baskets.

But, look how cute they turned out!

And there you have it!  Done!  Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to leave a comment.  I’ll be drawing a random winner for a prize on Monday, 11 April.  If you’re a follower (or you sign up today to be a follower) let me know, and you’ll get 2 chances.  Link your blog (or FB page) to here, and you’ll get 3 chances.

Alright!  On to the next blog.  Dana’s always got something special brewing!

    OK, I just left a comment and it’s not there. Do you moderate them? And I was a follower when it was my family blog. I went to become a follower from my scrappy one and can’t find where to do it. Where’s the link to follow?

      Hi Dana,

      You probably are just too fast for the server. I do moderate, but you’re already an approved poster 🙂 As for where to follow, see the “email subscription” on the sidebar? That’s the easiest way to do it.

      Let me know if you can’t find them down your way. I’d be happy to send you a care package! They’re super light weight, so it’s not a bother.
