Sometimes I see an idea that I HAVE TO DO (like the popcorn in a lunch bag). Last year I really wanted my Easter centerpiece to be real grass with our hard boiled eggs nestled in it. It didn’t happen. But I just ran across the same idea, but as actual Easter grass for your Easter baskets! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! This is a HAVE TO DO for me.
So I grabbed some potting trays from the dollar store yesterday – four for a dollar! We had leftover grass seed and potting soil from last year. Yay, a $1 project!
This is what I’ve got now.
And here is what I hope it will look like in two weeks. You can pin the dirt pictures from here, but please go to this link How Does She? to pin the photo below.
Time is of the essence, so I couldn’t wait until my grass grew to tell you just in case this is a HAVE TO DO for you too!
I just love this idea because it’ll be fun to watch the grass grow with the kids, I won’t have shredded fake grass all over my house and it’s sooooo stinkin cute!
If all else fails, I saw some wheatgrass for sale at the grocery store or I could just use my good old shredded wood grass that we’ve been using.
Check out my Easter pinboard for some other fun ideas like dying eggs with lace tights and polka dot glitter eggs. So many awesome ideas out there so little time! These Crystal Geode Eggs from Martha Stewart are another HAVE TO DO, but I think it’s a HAVE TO DO for next year.
