Vintage Baskets of Little Peeps

Peep, peep!

I am sooooo ready for Spring! We’ve had some teaser days of it here in Northern Colorado, but then we’ll get a snowy day to remind us that Winter is not done yet. Thankfully, creating with spring-like materials helps a little bit.

These little chicks are so sweet, and I thought they would look just adorable nestled in these vintage nut baskets. Unfortunately, as these nut baskets come from the 50s, the delicate handles didn’t survive over the years. So, in their place, I used pipe cleaners, which I think work just as well.

vintage-chicks-3I trimmed the pipe cleaners with a ribbon and a vintage, hard plastic flower, and, nestled the chicks in vintage Easter grass. Which, I know first hand, is from the 70s, as this is the exact same grass that was in my Easter basket as a child. 🙂

vintage-chicks-2I think they look kind of happy, don’t you? I’ve made several of these little baskets, and they are on their way to the af.fin.ity Boutique for their Grand Opening celebration this Saturday.

Happy Creating!
Michelle
