Do you enjoy simple projects? 15 minute spring peat pot treat baskets are for you! These baskets are quick to make and they will be a great touch for any spring table.
Everyone in my family enjoys sweets, especially chocolate. So, I am planning to fill these with goodies for everyone to take home and enjoy!
Besides sending everyone home with something, I especially enjoy the fact they will have something to remember from this special day.

Paint the Peat Pots with White Craft Paint
Step 1: Paint Peat Pots White
First, begin painting the baskets with white craft paint. As a result of these peat pots being rough in texture, I advise using a paintbrush. One coat of craft paint is all that’s needed.
Because these pots are cardboard, they need to dry overnight.
Printing and Cutting the Image to Add to This Spring Craft Pot
Step 2: Printing a Cutting of the Graphic
Now when printing your image regular printer paper works best.
After the images are printed cut around the image. This works best when cutting as close to the image as possible.
Adding the Images Using Mod Podge
Step 3: Using Mod Podge Add the Graphic of Your Choice
Now add a coat of Mod Podge to the back of the cut image. It’s particularly important to make sure to cover the edges well with the glue.
Now carefully pick up the image and add it to the spring baskets. Here you want to use a tapping motion so the image will not tear.
Immediately after adding the graphic to the spring treat peat pots add a coat of Mod Podge to the top of the image. Doing this smooths any edges. Also, this gives the image a great look and brightens the black and white of the rabbit.
By the way, if you are looking for another way to have something to fill with chocolate these are simple and quick to make. I share an easy-to-follow tutorial!
