DIY Spring Treat Baskets

I decided to make some Spring treat baskets from peat pots after noticing that the ones I made several years ago got re-pinned on Pinterest more than anything else I have made. Here is a picture of the original ones.

The new ones are slightly different and I didn’t have the same style peat pot and I ran out of the wire.

This whole sleeve of pots only cost 50 cents at a thrift shop. You can buy them inexpensively at dollar stores also. As you can see, these are smaller than the original ones I used and they don’t have the rim around the opening.

Watch here to see how I made them:

I love how they turned out and they were so easy to make. I challenge you to pick up some peat pots and create something for Spring yourself!

Easter Peeks Not Peeps

Even though the weather has been just dreadful here in Virginia this past week, I have been thinking about Spring. Easter to be exact. I have been busy creating goodies to sell at my Mossy Cottage mortar and bricks store in Fredericksburg. I thought I would give you a little sneak peek in the hope that it will get your spirits up and ready for warmer weather (without clouds and rain)!

Here are some peat pot baskets.

And here are some cute scrabble tile ornaments I made. I wish I could say I was clever enough to come up with this idea myself, alas, I am not. 100% of the credit for this idea goes here:¬†www.pinterest.com/pin/500462577313389189/ by Stampin D’Amour. I did come up with my own designs, however, because I used supplies I already had on hand.

I am happy to say that a couple of these goodies are already on their way to a customer I have in New York. Anyway, the glitter is still flying in my studio because I am working on a couple other Easter items. I will post them as soon as they are finished. In the meantime, chins up, Spring IS on its way!!!
