Happy Good Friday to you. Are you finishing up all of your springtime holiday preparations? I wish that there were two of me. One to clean the house and finish the grocery shopping and another to deliver these happy baskets to my wonderful neighbors and friends.
I don’t think that an Easter basket HAS to have a handle on it. I found these sweet willow gems for 15 cents at the thrift store. The pastel polka dotted ribbon I have had forever. The darling free Easter tag printables are HERE. Of course candy was added into the baskets. A wee nest in the center is made from a mini cupcake liner.
My favorite item that I gave to all my friends who tease me incessantly about blogging: The “I Blogged Your Mama!” box of gum. While I found mine at a favorite local candy store you can also find it HERE.
Once all the contents were positioned I placed the basket in the center of a piece of periwinkle tulle. You can find almost every color of netting imaginable at stores like Wal Mart, Hobby Lobby and Joann’s. It is a lot less expensive than cellophane and I think it looks so much prettier!
