Ten on the Tenth...An Easter Basket for an Adult....

I am joining Ten on the Tenth again to share an Easter basket idea.


Last year I made this "Cocktail Garden " as a birthday gift for friends.: 


The cost was certainly more than $10, and would make a cute Easter basket, but I came up with another similar idea for under $10:

Purchase a clay pot for about $1.99

Paint a bunny face on the pot and fill with a large muffin, a plant or candy treats:


  I spray primed the pots white paint and then "sponged" acrylic paint over the whole pot, white over white for the base, and then 3 different colors on the rim.  The faces were painted with very thin brushes (but you could also use a sharpie).


These are a cute and inexpensive gift to make for under $10!

Imagine a "Santa" face for Christmas!!

Visit these other creative bloggers to see how they spent their $10:

  5. Patti, I love this! So cute and what a great gift! I can definitely see this with a Santa face -- I would have to find a sticker or stencil, because I have no drawing skills at all...I mean at all! I screw up when I'm tracing! Hugs!

  6. Patti this is beyond adorable! You have mad painting skills. If I tried to paint such a face it would surely end up under "Pinterest Fails". LOL Maybe a stencil. :)

  7. You can never go wrong with tulips. Now if I could somehow replace my brown thumb for a green one, I'd do it! Cute idea.

  11. Awww, Patti, your rabbit pot has the cutest face!!! Great idea to reuse an old pot or to dress up a new for every holiday season! I love the sponging, too. I need to get busy crafting; it has been too long.

    Thanks for sharing for 10 on the 10th. Happy to be with you on this tour.
    Hugs,
    Barb :)
