Easter, the most joyous holiday ever to fill your house with glitter and fake plastic grass.
If ever there was an event that called for a makeover, it’s the plastic egg hunt with the tiny packaged candies that are improperly named “fun-size.” They aren’t fun, unless it’s frolicsome to open about four of those suckers before you finally get your fill.
I guess that part isn’t tailored for me.
At least the eggs are reusable, if I can find both sides and neither one is cracked. And if that happens, it’s pretty magical.
My usually aimless railing inspired me to look at the baskets at Southern Thrift on Charlotte this year, and I found three matching metal wire baskets. The first found a purpose in protecting a mermaid crown, with twine mimicking rope and holding large decorative shells to the sides.
From there, I wove the twine in and out of the wire, placing diapers along the outer edge as I went. I kept the basket on a flat surface while I worked, to ensure that the diapers stayed level.
With all the diapers placed, I took a wide ribbon and covered the twine and rubber bands. The ribbon was pinned, and I was done!
From here, the diapers will be used, and the basket is the kind that can be repainted if necessary to go wherever a catch-all is needed.
For our baskets, we’ll have candy, some Kirby items (will he overtake Super Mario??!?), and Son One helped me pick out a sweet Beanie Boo bunny that his brother will love. And that’s about it- they’ll have to scrap for the rest at hunts!
But they are loving their Valentines bath bombs, and if they didn’t have a stockpile, I’d get more from Relax with 3 on Etsy. She has Peep ones!
