Gardener's Gift Basket

For your favorite horticulturist, choose a sturdy basket that can have a long life of service in the garden. We decorated ours using a palette of yellows and oranges, inspired by the early-blooming daffodils.

Materials

  • Store-bought basket
  • Ribbon
  • Easter straw
  • Tissue paper
  • Garden clogs
  • Canvas gloves
  • Canvas apron
  • Pruning snips
  • Pruning shears
  • Seed packets
  • Plant labels
  • Small pot of daffodils
  • Lemon jelly beans
  • Decorated eggs

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Paint the basket, tie a bow to the base of the handle, then line the bottom with a bed of Easter straw and tissue paper. Add a pair of garden clogs, canvas gloves and aprons, pruning snips and shears, seed packets, and plant labels. Finish with a small pot of daffodils, a bag of lemon jelly beans, and a few decorated eggs.
