Lighted Easter Basket

Hi all,
I know its been a while since I have posted, between spring break and family things its been very busy. I sometimes wonder where time goes... speaking of time Easter is right around the corner. I remember when I was little I loved Easter Baskets all shapes, sizes and colors. I love Easter time because it's like everything in world is reborn, fresh, crisp and colorful. Trees, grass, and flowers are all beginning a new year it's so pretty. The posting for today is an idea I've had for awhile I thought it would pretty cool and I've never seen anyone make one before. So my idea sprang from taking a large flower pot and turning it into an Easter Basket. This project only took me an hour. I purchased the tulle from Hobby Lobby they have an awesome color choice. The pictures below will note where I purchased my supplies. So if you want to recreate this project you can, the only thing I ask is that you please reference my blog.
Here you go -

Eggs lite at dusk time (Just finished)
Eggs lighted up at dark. (looks so pretty)

Supplies on the left are a wire coat hanger shaped into a handle with tulle braided around it with wire to wrap around the hanger through the tulle and twisted to hold firm.

Supplies were bought from JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby. JoAnn's -flowers; Hobby Lobby the fake grass, pin wheels, and lighted eggs.

I found some awesome new blog sites from Feline Play. I have posted each sites badge for you to go check out their blogs these are some very talented ladies. You can also click on the site names below and you will be taken to their blog as well.
