Every year for Easter, I give my parents an Easter basket. It’s often filled with a candle, some candy and a potted tulip or lily. This year however, I wanted to try something new, so I decided to put together a dish garden.
Here’s what you’ll need for this project:
Begin by potting the calla lily and campanula plants, leaving an open area to place the ceramic bunny later.
Cover any exposed dirt with the paper Easter grass and place the ceramic bunny and Cadbury Eggs toward the front of the basket.
Then insert the pussy willow branches to add height and visual interest to the basket.
At this point I though I was done. Then I decided I needed a bow, what’s an Easter basket without a bow, right?!
So I ran to my local Hobby Lobby and picked up a pretty ruched wired ribbon and made a bow to add to the handle of my basket. After adding the bow however, I felt the other side of the basket needed something to give it more visual weight and add balance, so I placed a couple of pheasant feathers that I had in with my floral supplies between the pussy willow branches.
I’m so glad I didn’t stop when I originally thought I was done. Sometimes more is better! I hope my parents think so too!
