Making A Rustic Spring Basket

There is still time before Easter 
to create this easy Rustic Spring Basket.  
Here is what you will need:
A basket - it can be round or rectangular. 
A grapevine wreath
 Fresh Spring Flowers - I used tulips, daffodils, hyacinth, 
and gerbera daisies,  
filler flowers like babies breath
 Green Moss
A nest with eggs
Floral Foam

I placed the wet floral foam 
into the basket inside these "to go" cotainers.  
Then I cut apart a grapevine wreath 
and started winding it around the basket.  
It gets a little unruly 
so just keep working with it 
to get it the way you want it.  
I wound it up around the top 
to make a handle on the top.
Because tulips have delicate stems 
that don't stick into the floral foam easily, 
I placed these dollar store vases 
in the middle of the basket.
I put the tulips in the vases 
and stuck the hyacinth into the floral foam.  
I then started filling in with the rest of the flowers.
Just play around with it until 
you get the look you like.  
I even added some daffodils from my own garden.  
 To finish it off, add some green moss 
around the edges and I added a nest with eggs.  
A cute sign or bunny would be fun too!
The great thing is that you can easily change 
out the flowers in the vases 
when they start to wilt.  
Keep water in the floral foam containers 
and your flowers will last quite a while.  
Happy Easter Everyone!  
Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves
