PART 3 - Final

Don't rush out and purchase something, maybe the old tin,
footed glass bowl, baseball mitt or something
in your basement or attic will be perfect! 
Look around your home and shop your house!

Here is what we did:
* Found an old tin in the utility room at our house.
* Filled with green grass from Dollar Store floral area.
* Added our blingy eggs for contrast.
* Personalized the white glitter acrylic chick and tied it on the handle with ribbon.
    TIP: Use a long piece of ribbon to get your bow just right and clip off the extra.

Here are other ideas on containers we made into Easter baskets and used the personalized acrylics to give them some pizzazz and a custom look.

All acrylic shapes and knit hats are available here.
