Project

Clover and Eggs Basket

Introduction

This fanciful green meadow vignette seems a fitting home for a chocolate bunny. His eyes (dabs of tinted royal icing) and bow-tie (ribbon with a glued-on rosette) match his surroundings.

Materials

  • Plastic liner
  • Vintage green basket
  • Soil
  • Clover bed
  • Blown-out eggs
  • Silk ribbon

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Set a plastic liner inside a vintage green basket, add some soil, and then plant a bed of clover.

  2. Step 2

    Nestle a collection of green-dyed blown-out eggs from quails, turkeys, and chukars (a type of partridge) among the plants (for dyeing how-to, click here) and draped green picot-edged silk-ribbon bows down the basket's sides.

    A variation that I have done is to use grass seed. Choose any attractive basket and line with the plastic. Fill with soil and sow the grass seed. Water and it grows fast. Blue dyed Easter eggs look so natural on the green grass. I like the chocolate bunny idea too.
