The Easter Bunny is Long Gone....

The Easter bunny is long gone, but I just had to show you a last minute Easter decoration.  I was going to save it for next year, but when I put things away, I have a tendency to lose them...I'm sure most of you can relate...  I'm still trying to find Christmas gifts from years ago!  Anyway, when I saw these peat pot Easter baskets at Musings from Kim K., I just knew I had to make them.  If you haven't already, you must visit Kim's blog!  She is the queen of crafting!  Here's my version of her delightful peat pot Easter baskets...

I didn't have much time to make them, and,thank goodness, they sure were super easy.  I simply bought peat pots at Big Lots, gave them a swipe of pink paint, decoupaged a graphic from The Graphics Fairy, and then sprinkled on the glitter.  Here are my easter basket peat pots sitting on the table...

Hope you had a wonderful Easter!  Special thanks to Kim K. for inspiring me to make this quick and easy Easter decoration!


  1. Your peat pots turned out simply gorgeous. I'm glad you showed them off on the blog. Easter blessings!

  2. Very cute! I love Kim's blog.

  3. I will have to go visit her. I adore your peat pots! I keep saying I'm going to have to pick some up and see what I can whip up. You've inspired me!

  4. They turned out so pretty! I want to try it :)
    Happy Easter!!

  5. What a little decoupage and Graphic's Fairy can't do. Cute idea! I'll have to file this away in the memory bank :)
    Hope you had a Happy Easter!

  6. These were darling and the picture of you table doesn't begin to do it justice...everything looked beautiful! And, the food was delicious.

  7. So adorable! Of course, they look perfect on your table too! Well, sounds like we are in the same "forgetful" boat. Have a nice week!

  8. Love them!
    What a wonderful idea!
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hope you had a wonderful Easter as well.
    Prim Blessings

  9. Your decorations were lovely, Heather! I loved the bunnies, and your version of the peat pots is so sweetly subtle.

  10. Cute! I saw this idea too in another blog, but I saw it too late to make this year. Definitely going in my craft idea archive for next year. Have a wonderful day.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  11. I really like yours! It was a fun and easy craft...I will be making more in the future.
    Happy Tuesday afternoon,

  12. what a fabulous idea... could also be used for Mother's Day Tea... or Father's Day, too...
    How about participating in WEEKWORD? the word is BOOK... and I know you read or have some thoughts about BOOKS... invite your other bloggers.

  13. They turned out great - what a cute idea!

  14. I love the picture she has on the Easter basket. The little angels rolling the Easter egg. That is really cute.
