This Easter basket idea is overflowing with creativity—and natural elements like wheatgrass. If you don't want to sprout it yourself, simply buy a flat and trim it to your container. When the big-eared guy hops into town, you can put all your eggs—or a flock of downy ducklings—in one earth-friendly basket. Extra eco-friendly tip: For an alternative basket filling that you can recycle, cut inexpensive colored or natural kraft paper into thin ribbons with shredding scissors.
Set the seeds atop 1/2 to 1 inch of moist soil in a tray; set it inside your basket. Cover and keep it out of the light. But be sure to spray daily with water. When grass is 1 to 2 inches tall, uncover and move to indirect sunlight.
Continue spraying daily. The seeds should germinate in about two days, and grow to 6 inches in a week and a half. Optional: Embellish basket for presentation with ribbon and decorative add-ons as pictured.
