Peat (seed starter) pots are back!

Just in case you are out running errands this weekend, I noticed that seed starter peat pots are back in stock at Dollar Tree. Actually, you can find them all over the place...including major grocery store chains and home construction stores.
 They are great for making mini Easter baskets. 

Grab your glue gun, some ribbon, buttons, print off a few Easter graphics and you're all set!

 Tutorials on this project can be found here on my blog.

 It's one of my favorite Easter crafts. You can make them fancy and you can even make them child-friendly. 

Happy Friday!

Happy Creating!

Cute, cute, cute! Around here, those seed pots all seem to be used to start seedlings for the vegetable garden!

Hoping this winter storm doesn't cause too many difficulties for you!

I was just thinking of rerunning my old peat pot post from two years ago. I guess I could make some new ones too! You've got me in a crafty mood between these and your kitchen box!

I love when you spy things at the Dollar Store and tell us! I must try this because if Josie can do it, so can Grama! It's about 7" so far on the ground and snow still falling...get ready!
