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!

Ode To Spring ATCs

As I have seen the first signs of Spring here in Virginia I was moved to make some art that reflects my joy that Winter is waning. I wanted to make some ATC (Artist Trading Card) magnets that are inspired by this one I made some time ago.

I wrote a blog post about the process for making this ATC and you can find it at this link:

I followed the process pretty much the same as the one linked above, however, I didn’t use gesso and I added some ephemera before adding the focal points. 

If you’d like to watch the YouTube video process for these magnets, here’s the link:

Here are the three ATC magnets I made.

I like the way they turned out and love the vintage look. I hope you try making some Spring inspired ATC magnets for your fridge or ATCs to gift to a friend!
