Pom-Pom Easter Basket

"Easter sort of snuck up on me this year, mothering-wise at least. I thought it would be easiest to skip a basket for the baby (he's only four months old after all), but then one tiny Easter-y thing after another snuck into my cart at Target, and I had to acknowledge that my nostalgic heart did want something special for his first Easter. My brother and sister and I always had the same Easter baskets throughout our childhoods, and I'd like that for my children too. I thought about buying a vintage Easter basket for Miles, but would have had to find two matching ones (can't leave out that someday-sibling). So, similar to our Christmas stockings, I decided to make his basket myself. I brainstormed for a little while – would I sew it? Knit it? Weave...something? I like rope baskets, and decided to add pom-poms and a wooden "M" to a plain white one – almost as a sort of charm. It turned out to be such a quick, satisfying project that I think has a high impact! Plus it will be easy to replicate on a second basket in a few more years!"

I had long forgotten about Easter when I saw this. You don't always have to make things from scratch, there a beauty of being in a crafting community like asking one of your friends to make something for you or buying one from an Etsy shop. Love how you used those Easter colours to make the pom poms contrast against the white basket.
