Garden Bunny Basket

Hi everyone! First off I would like to welcome you to the Robin’s Nest Garden Blog Hop! Second off please make sure to stop by each of the blogs and leave a comment, follow each blog and follow our FB page.  We are giving away a prize on each blog.  It is a $15 butterfly kit full of Robin’s Nest butterfly products, perfect for the garden. 🙂
Now I would like to share a quick project that is originally something that you would use to start plants in your garden with. When I went to Lowes I found two sizes of peat pots but I went with the larger size I figured it was the prefect size to alter and create an adorable basket.

I had very little Caribbean Blue acrylic paint leftover from another project so I mixed that paint with white and painted the peat pot. I let dry and then I used Antique Mod Podge to seal it.
I punched holes on either side of the pot and I run an iridescent pipe cleaner through each hole to make the handle. I adhered half of a doily and ric rac around the top of the pot. I created a banner and a rosette and glued on top of the doily. Next I fussy cut from the Vintage Easter Greetings  sheet a bunny. I punched a circle from the Moss Green Glitter Cardstock and adhered on top of the banner and rosette.

I cut four flowers from the Pink Glitter Cardstock using the Flower #3 die and I used green scraps of cardstock to cut the leaves out. I used a stylus to give the flower petals and leaves shape. Then I adhered together and added buttons, sequins and a Pearl Dew Drop (Crimson Mini Dew Drops). I glued it to the side of the handle.


That’s a pretty easy project, huh??? Now all I have to do is add some more goodies. 🙂

Caribbean Blue and White acrylic paint
