Default Easter Baskets

Most definitely the wrong place to put this, but I didn't know where to ask...

Does anyone make Easter baskets (bow bouquets essentially)? What do you put in them, I have a ton of the mini metal baskets from Target and since they are collecting dust I was thinking about making them up to sell as Easter baskets with some clippies in clear eggs, basic bows, a sculpture and/or feltie clippie. Any advice/tips/warnings on the topic?

No tips as I have yet to try this myself. I am going to have a few of those large plastic eggs with the clear covers at my next show and I am putting a selection of bows in there so someone could add it to an already existing basket or give it as a gift for Easter. I'll let you know how it goes.

I have made some out of the smaller metal pails (similar to what is found at Target in the dollar section). I usually place a coordinating color of the crinkle paper, if I don't use green, to cover the styrofoam. The more bows, the bigger the basket/pail/etc.. I have seen where others will attach at least one sculpture in the mix, such as a ladybug or butterfly. Real cute.

If I'm not mistaking somewhere in the instructions here..maybe by doing a search you can find instructions for this.

The search button is my friend... I've used it... I am not looking for instructions, I was just wondering what everyone else puts in theirs or if they don't make them... I've seen some awfully cute ones out there...

I was thinking about offering Easter bow baskets as well I made my sister fabric and ribbon flower arrangements for her bridal shower that were along the same lines except there were just flowers not bows. Good luck!!!

Well, I wasn't being mean. I thought you were maybe looking for instructions.
I have made one of these for my nieces. I got some of the bigger eggs. I put some different clippies in there. I used dowel rods for stems and put a couple of the flower looking bows in there. I covered the dowel rod with green flower arranging tape. I don't know what you call it. I also put a small bow holder in the one I done. Just an idea.

That wasn't supposed to come across bitchy, sorry... I was going to use ribbon for the dowels, but I bet the tape would be faster and easier to use... Would NOT have thought of that thanks!!
