Little Egg Carton Easter Baskets

I've seen several versions of egg carton baskets over the past few years and I finally got to make my own.

White had to their color since that's the tablescape theme that I'm going with this year. 
 I filled them with shredded, white paper and chocolate, foil eggs.

I painted the grey cartons in white craft paint and added gold wire handles, ribbon and these little flowers that I had in my stash. They're a little bit shabby and a little bit chic!

I used little alphabet stamps to make initial flags to identify each place setting.

 Jeannette from "Creating a Life" inspired me with her sweet, colorful can see hers here.

 Here's a "sneak peek" of my Easter tablescape for this year.

this post is now,!

Love, Hugs and Kisses,
