Project

Miniature Gardens Easter Basket

Head to your local garden center or florist to create these engaging and transplantable Easter greetings.

Materials

  • Store-bought basket
  • Ribbon
  • Easter straw
  • Tissue paper
  • Garden clogs
  • Canvas gloves
  • Canvas apron
  • Pruning snips

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Line the bottom of a woven basket with a plastic container filled with potting soil. If your basket doesn't have a handle, a length of pliant pussy willow attached to the sides with floral wire makes a fine substitute.

  2. Step 2

    The large basket contains some creeping fig and ferns and is filled in with moss. Use an ordinary plant label for your greeting and add another to identify the contents. Fill other baskets with African violets, Irish moss -- any small plant or flower that strikes your fancy. Then hide some quail eggs among the flora.
