Adult Easter Box

Courtesy of Abigail Barnes

Hi Friends,

Make the ultimate adult Easter basket with fun gifts inside. Spray paint an old wooden crate in your desired color. Let dry, and attach a cute pennant banner to the front. To make the banner, cut triangles from black cardstock or scrapbook paper, and write a letter on each triangle using a chalkboard pen. Glue the pennants to a strand of baker's twine, and tie or glue the twine ends to the crate. Fill the box with gifts like wine, glasses and chocolate to give to friends and neighbors.

Chalkboard Terra Cotta Pot

If you aren't into sweets, make a garden lover's basket instead. Apply chalkboard paint to a terra cotta pot. Once dry, rub with chalk, lightly coating entire pot to cure the paint. Wipe off excess and write or draw Easter messages with chalk or a chalkboard pen. Fill with gardening goodies.

Brass Watering Can

A brass antique watering can makes an eye-catching Easter basket alternative. Tie a length of one-inch wide grosgrain ribbon to the handle and the spout for an easy way to carry it. You can even hide it in the garden as part of an Easter egg hunt.

Happy Easter Hunting...
