Flower Egg Basket

Perfect for spring holidays and always reusable, this wire egg basket looks great as a dining table centerpiece, in an entrance hall, or on a kitchen counter. Create a “wildflower meadow” look by twirling moss, leaves, and seasonal flowers together with a casual flair.

Wire egg basket
Glass container smaller than egg basket, but similar shape
Spanish moss
Various “wildflower meadow” blooms in bright, pure spring colors
(mums, statice, mini daffodils, hyacinth, button poms, sweetheart roses, snowball bush, asters, etc.)
Plastic wrap
Cellophane tape
Chlorine bleach
Flower cutters or sharp knife

1.  Soak moss and squeeze out excess moisture.
2.  Push the moss into the edges of the container until it is forced through the wire mesh. Continue until the entire container is covered.
3.  Push the glass container (which will be used for the flower arrangement) into the center of the moss and fill in any space between the moss and glass container with plastic wrap until container is snug.
4.  Fill the container 2/3 full with water. Add a teaspoon of chlorine bleach to keep the water fresh.
5.  Form a “grid” on the top of the glass container to resemble a “tic-tac-toe”—this will help keep the flowers in place.
6.  Start inserting the multi-bloom flowers such as the snowball bush at the outer edge of the container.
7.  Follow with the larger blooms (daffodils, mums) and finally the largest blooms (open roses). Complete arrangement by tucking in smaller flowers (asters and sweetheart roses) in any area that needs filling in.
8.  Finish by inserting greens into outer edge, then tuck remainder of moss over edge of container so it appears to be growing out of the meadow-grass.
9.  Remember to keep glass container full of water, and mist moss at least once a day to keep fresh and green. > crafts spring crafts > flower egg basket
