Easter Peat Cups

For this week's Graphics Fairy project, I chose three Easter images.  I printed them in wallet pic size and applied them to little peat cups  I picked up at Lowe's.  I attached the images with Tacky Glue.  I did some with wire handles and some with no handles.  I used 18 gauge wire and poked a small hole in the sides of the cups with a corn cob skewer.  It made a tiny hole that I threaded the wire through. 
 I took apart a silk flower that had small petaled flowers and just pulled of a little sprig and wound it around the basket handle.  I had some tiny little paper flowers that were on a wire that I picked up at a garage sale a while back and wound that around the wire as well.  You can improvise with any tiny flower sprig.

I used a glue gun to attach some tissue paper garland around the tops of each peat pot.  There are several sellers on Etsy that carry this.  I did this to all of them, even the ones with no handle.

 I got some paper Easter grass and stuffed the cups and then used little fuzzy Peeps I got at the 99 Cent store and some pastel glittered eggs I picked up at the craft store.  Easter stuff is already 40 percent off.
 The above picture is a tall lantern for candles.  I put my cupcake stand inside of it for a taller display.  I covered the bottom of the lantern with some moss to give it a natural look and also to give those little Peeps a soft place to nest.
I also arranged it on a two-tiered stand for a little different look.  I like both ways.  These were so much fun.  I might use them for place card cups at Easter and put some jelly beans in them for a treat.  Thanks for dropping by.  The Peeps and I loved having you.
