With Easter right around the corner, I was inspired this weekend to make an Easter centerpiece. Glancing through some of the pins on my Easter Ideas board on Pinterest, I decided to make a couple of Bunny Carts – idea courtesy of Martha Stewart. Overall it took about four hours to put these together, including a couple of layers of paint on the baskets, wheels, axles and harnesses. I deviated from the original how-to by using fabric ribbon for the trim on the carts and harness straps, filling with shredded paper grass and topping with colorful Sweet Tart jelly beans. The store was also short on regular white chocolate bunnies, so I used a cookies and cream variety instead.
I bought my berry baskets on Amazon.com, with quite a few extas for raspberry picking this summer. The rest of my craft supplies I bought through FactoryDirectCraft.com. FactoryDirect is inexpensive, ships immediately for a low cost and offers high quality products. Here’s a peek at some of my supplies and painting:
