Basket Full of Sunshine

I am sooo pleased with how these little pretties turned out! I painted peat pots (for starting seedlings for your garden) pink, green, teal and yellow. I then stamped  words ( happy, spring, giggle, grow, etc...) onto some speckled eggs. You could also stamp names to use these baskets as placecards for your Easter meal! Hot glue a little tissue paper garland to the rim, a pipe cleaner for the handle and stuff a little Easter basket "grass" to the inside. Wah-Lah. A baket full of sunshine! I'm linking to ...

Happy PS anyway - will try to do better next weekend.
