What you’ll need
1 gardening container (for the basket)
1 brick of floral foam
1 bag of paper Easter grass
1 small strawberry plant (or seed packet)
1 chalkboard sign
5 flower lollipops
2 pink/red plastic Easter eggs
2 1-inch circles of green paper
1 black permanent marker
Shari’s Berries Easter brownie pops
Children’s gardening tools
Since the theme is berry patch, we used a metal garden tub. But you can get creative and use any garden container you like. Try a wooden bucket, watering can, terracotta pot or a garden hod. After you’ve chosen your container, line the bottom with floral foam.
Cover the floral foam with a layer of green paper Easter grass.
Add a live strawberry plant to your garden. If live plants aren’t available, use a packet of strawberry seeds. Personalize the basket by adding a name on a mini chalkboard sign. You can also use this as a gift tag for the basket, or have fun with it and write “The Easter Bunny was here” or “Hoppy Easter”.
Insert flower lollipops down into the floral foam so they stay upright.
Add Shari’s Berries brownie pops or another cute and fudgy treat.
Make plastic strawberries by drawing seeds on pink or red plastic Easter eggs with a permanent marker. Scallop the edges of a 1-inch circle of green paper and attach it to the plastic egg with twine. Fill the strawberries with jelly beans or other strawberry-flavored treats.
Finish it off by adding some children’s gardening tools to the bucket so they can tend their new strawberry garden.
A hoppy ending?
