 combine a bit of rustic with a touch of elegance. Since they are so inexpensive you can make several for yourself, and as gifts. You will find dozens of 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.

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!


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~
