Easter fun with the kids...

I'm always looking for something fun to make with my son. Easter is an exciting time with Spring in the air so I thought we could make a fun little decoration for the table. Of course w always try to recycle and a peanut container made the perfect base for our project,. ;)

Begin by painting all the eggs and set aside. While the eggs are drying adhere yellow paper around nut container & cut small strips of green paper, curl and add to inside of container for your "Easter grass".

Once eggs are dry adhere coordinating flowers and brads to decorate, add to container. Adhere eggs, bunny, and Easter sentiment to the front and tie ribbon around top.

A fun & easy craft!
