Buttoned Up Easter Fun!

I am just beginning to ready my house for Easter.  I have an influx of family heading this way soon and I haven't mopped one floor!  I did rummage up a few of the baskets and goodies to decorate the house a bit. 

I attempted to display some plastic eggs, but the boys and their friends decided to wage an egg war in the living room.  Needless to say, I am now left without any intact eggs.  I have only reclaimed three halves!

This is my feeble attempt at Wordless Wednesday-  I can't go wordless.  It's an easy craft idea!

My neighbor provided us with a basket several years ago brimming with goodies for the boys.  I don't know if she made it or found it at a craft fair.  It is a simple way to dress up a boring Easter basket into a pretty little number.  It's an extreme makeover edition for your drabby baskets.

Here is what you need:
  1. a basket
  2. white or light pastel spray paint
  3. colorful buttons
  4. hot glue or craft glue
Paint your basket and glue the buttons around the outside.  This is a cheap way to update your old baskets!

Do you reuse baskets at Easter or buy new ones each year?
