Moss Easter Basket

I made this cute litte Moss Easter basket and put my hemp Easter Eggs inside.

I took some of my left over chicken wire from this project and cut it to the size I wanted.

I then took some burlap and glued my chicken wire to the burlap.

I folded the burlap over the top to cover the cut wires.

I then cut a circle out of cardboard to make the bottom of the basket. I then glued it to the

I created my handle using the same method as the basket. I then took peat moss and glued it to the burlap and covered the outside of my basket and my handles.
I then crumpled up some newspapers and stuck them inside my basket and then laid peat moss on top of the newspaper and added my eggs.
And there you have it . . . a moss Easter Basket!
