I made a basket for my the Easter Parade demonstration that would look natural and even a little wild with sticks and tendrils sticking out. Something the Easter Bunny would weave and carry.
I wove the basket from vine and paper wire.
The green berries are paper covered baubles and the blossoms are dried hydrangea florets.
I filled it with Hot Cross Buns as Favors for the audience. The gifts also contained the Easter Egg Hunt prizes.
