Fabulous tutorial for how to make a DIY Moss Basket that is perfect for an Easter tablescape.
I can picture it in my head.
A beautifully appointed Easter table with a crisp white table runner. My wedding china and crystal placed carefully around the table. Near the center a petite moss covered basket overflowing with sparkling Easter eggs.
Then I realized that if I was going to make this Pottery Barn look alike Easter tablescape a reality I better get crafting.
One bag of moss and one thrift store basket later I have the sweetest little DIY Moss Basket that will be perfect for our Easter celebration.
This DIY Easter Basket is a Pottery Barn Knock Off version of Pottery Barn’s Greenvine Baskets. But at the fraction of the price. My moss basket cost approximately $2 while Pottery Barn’s version was originally priced at $20. That’s $17 in my crafting budget for more DIY Easter projects.

DIY Moss Basket ~ Instructions
Thanks to 50% off day at the thrift store I was able to pick up the perfect sized basket for 75 cents. The bag of green moss* came from my favorite craft store and cost $3 with one of those fabulous 40% off coupons.
Begin the basket by prepping the moss. Remove half the moss from the bag then fluff it up by tearing it apart. Lots of fluffy moss makes covering the basket easier.
Carefully use hot glue to attached the moss to all of the outside areas of the basket. Apply moss to the inside and outside of the basket handle. Remember to add the moss gingerly so you do not get hot glue burns. Your fingers will thank you.
Double check to make sure none of the original basket is peeking through. Small bits of moss may need to be added.
When the entire basket is covered with moss it will need a bit of a trim. Use scissors cut back any stray pieces of moss.
Once the diy moss basket has a haircut it is ready to decorated with. Filling it with colorful, sparkly eggs makes it a lovely addition to our Easter tablescape.
I am beyond excited with how perfect the little moss covered basket looks on my table. Paired with a bunch of fabulous tulips and a cute little bunny friend, it almost feels like Easter!
