Easy Easter Project




 14244--Grass-Title
 

We thought this idea was adorable and wanted to share!

 
For a visual treat at Easter, you can tuck a grass filled baked or garden planter into the garden.  Nestled into the grass, colored eggs look as if the Easter Bunny has just hidden them.  Their bright colors harmonize beautifully with surrounding tulips.  Here's how:
 
3 weeks before Easter, fill the container with thoroughly moistened potting mix.  Top the soil, with seeds of a lawn grass blend of perennial rye and red fescue sold as a sun shade mixture.  Then place the plastic eggs on the seedbed, so the grass grows up around them.

They place the container on a plastic sheet in a room with good light and mist the seeds with a spray bottle several times a day.

When the grass appears, the plastic eggs can be replaced by more elaborate ones made of glass or stone.  If the grass grows too tall and conceals the eggs, cut it back with a pair of scissors.

When the baskets are ready, they can be placed in the yard, garden or a patio area, tucking them between stones, bushes or even hanging on a tree branch.  Beautiful & easy!
