Do you enjoy simple projects? Easy 15 minute spring peat pot treat baskets are for you! These baskets are quick to make and they will be a great touch on our Easter table.
Everyone in my family enjoys sweets, especially chocolate. So, I am planning to fill these with goodies for everyone to take home an enjoy! Because mostly couples will be joining us for Easter this year, I will fill every other one with different sweets for them to enjoy.
Besides sending everyone home with something yummy, I especially enjoy the fact they will have something to remember this special day.
Supplies Need to Make This Simple Project
- peat pots
- spring graphic, mine is from The Graphics Fairy
- decoupage scissors
- Mod Podge
- white craft paint
- clear cellophane bags
- paint brushes
Paint the Peat Pots with White Craft Paint
First begin painting the baskets with white craft paint. As a result of these peat pots being rough in texture, I advise using a paint brush. One coat of craft paint is all that’s needed for this project.
Because these pots are cardboard, they need to dry overnight.
Printing and Cutting the Image to Add to for This Spring Craft
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
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 namely want to use a tapping motion so the image will not tear.
Immediately after adding the graphic to the spring treat 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.

Look how smoothly this rabbit looks on these Easter treat pots!
Lastly, I did add a bit of craft paint around the inner rim the pots. This is optional. I did this because I want these to have a neat look through the cellophane bag filled with sweets!
