Hello crafty people!  Just had to share this great and easy idea, isn't it precious??

I just love it!  Wouldn't it make a great Easter gift for grandparents filled with candy or whatever they like?  I have a great granddaughter that I would be thrilled to get this from!  

I suggested to my granddaughter that she could make larger clay pots with Daddy and Mommy's prints on them and make a row of them on the patio or by steps or in a cluster in the yard.  I think that would be so cute and cool!  

You could probably do this with hand prints for a bird figure, also.  Flower pots make great gifting as you can personalize them and fill them with items to fit someone's personality.  For example, fill with seeds, trowel and gardening gloves or a book and juice bottle and sweets.  What do your family friends and children like that they would love to get in a pot instead of a basket?  Fun!

Here is my Easter Bonnet that I still use and made a few years ago.  This was made from a child's hat from the Dollar Store.  I stapled fabric flowers on it and added the wire ribbon and bunny.  You could also glue plastic eggs around it and grass.

I made this in 2010 and here it is now on my front door.

Bunny has disappeared and a new Pink Ribbon has been added.

I also still have my porcelain hen with crocheted Easter Eggs.  For more ideas, search Easter in the sidebar.  Happy Easter Crafting!!

My Krafty heart to yours...
