Easy DIY Easter Planter


Say hello to spring and Happy Easter with a quick, easy seasonal planter.




Stop by your local Home Depot and pick up some early, bright, spring plants…pansies, daffodils, violas, and also grab a bag of dried moss.


Gather a few plastic Easter eggs, some spools of pastel ribbons and a hot glue gun. Make knotted ribbon loops and attach the ribbon with a dab of hot glue to the eggs, then let the glue cool.



Take a walk and hunt for a fallen branch, a small single or multi twigged branch, with a good long center stalk…. that will be the center piece for your planter. Branches are everywhere at this point in the season; I found my branch in a pile of yard waste a neighbor was getting ready to bag and tie up for recycling.


With a fresh bag of potting mix plant up your spring flowers in your favorite planter, place the branch in the center; press the soil solidly around it, top dress the soil and around the flowers with the moss.



Finally hang the eggs from the branch, and nest a few eggs in the moss!  This enchanting planter takes very little time to create, but the fun, magical appeal is huge!


Create a little magic, place some springtime wonder by your front door….you will hatch a lot of smiles!!



Enjoy the new beginnings of the season, Maureen
