Easy Easter Basket

Happy Easter!  It smells like Easter in our house.  Tradition has it that we make a coconut cake every Easter.  The problem is that I love the taste of coconut, but hate the texture.  So a long time ago (about 30 years) Dennis came up with a solution.  We add more coconut milk and grind up coconut so the pieces are tiny.  That seems to work for me!  Yay!   And YUMMY!

Here is a really easy mini Easter Basket idea.  I used a flower cupcake liner and some paper wire.  (I picked both from Michaels.)  The cupcake liner (Wilton Brand) is very sturdy and works very well for a basket.  Just punch or poke a couple of holes for the handle.

Thread the paper wire through one of the holes and wrap a couple of times around a pencil or lollipop stick (whatever you've got that's round).  Repeat for the other side.

Fill with grass and some goodies and/or a cute bunny!  The flowers are attached with Aleene's glue.

Have a Happy Easter!
