Easter Decorations ~ Pretty Decorated Peat Pots


Altered, decorated peat pots! Looking for a simple and inexpensive Easter decorating idea? You can paint these, and decorate them anyway that pleases you and goes with your decor.  They can be dressed up or left more rustic, whichever way appeals to you. I love the combination of rustic with a touch of elegant. No matter what you choose, they can be very inexpensive to make and
you will find so many ways to use them from setting the table, to making little gift baskets or using them to display some of your other decorations like the painted and embellished eggs.


The first one is left rustic and lovely
just the way it came without any paint. 
I added some vintage laces and trim
and a vintage rhinestone pin.

Items Used Above:
  • Peat Pot - Unpainted
  • Vintage Lace & Trim
  • Vintage Rhinestone Pin
  • White Ribbon
  • White Coffee Filter Ruffle
  • Craft Sphagnum Moss
  • Burlap Twine
  • White Ribbon
  • Painted Egg, Paris Grey

 For the one above, I painted it with Annie Sloan Paris Grey Chalk Paint. 
You can use any paint that you like. 


Items Used Above:
  • Peat Pot - Painted Paris Grey
  • Vintage Lace & Trim
  • Paper Leaping Bunny - Grey/Gray
  • White Coffee Filter Ruffle
  • Craft Sphagnum Moss
  • Burlap Twine
  • Gray Ribbon
  • Painted Egg, Old White
I used this paint because the color was exactly what I wanted.
You can mix up any color you like with bottled or tube acrylics.


You could paint and decorate a batch of these in an afternoon, 
and they would be so pretty for your Easter decorating. 
Perfect for a little cookie or  treat, or a gift certificate. 
Or a chocolate bunny of course!


Two of the ones I made are on the entry table this year. The things I used for this display are:
  • Paper Flower & Leaves Wreath with Burlap Bow
  • Bunny Weathervane 
  • Decorated Peat Pots
  • Painted Plastic Eggs. Old White and Paris Grey
  • Ceramic Bunny Painted ASCP Old White
  • Bunny Nest of Vines & Moss
  • Pink Paper Flower
  • Antique Vellum Book
There are so many great ideas for you to try with these little peat pots. These also can be made into the sweetest little baskets if you just punch a hole in each side and add some wire for a handle. I hope you think of many more uses, too!

See Y'All Soon~
