A big welcome to Plaid designer Chris Williams – you’re going to love her Easter basket and eggs!
Ok, so this is my first offcial post on Paint Me Plaid. When Amy asked me to help her create a fun Easter basket with eggs, I was up for the challenge! Immediately I located a cute wood box/planter, some paper mache eggs, colorful beads, some ribbon that became my inspiration, wire, my normal painting supplies and of course a colorful palette of FolkArt Acrylics.

Of course there are the standard issue plastic woven Easter baskets, but this year I’m looking for something just a little more original! I happened upon Kelly’s chalkboard Easter baskets at Running With Glitter, and I was impressed.

See Kelly’s tutorial and how she plans to use them all year right here.

Can you believe it’s already coming up on Easter? Wow! It’s weeks away now, and so we’ll introduce a few crafts for you since we know you’re going to want to start decorating soon (if you haven’t already!). Since today is our TGIF project, and that means it should be quick to finish in a weekeend, I present to you FolkArt Extreme Glitter Easter eggs with a pretty, coordinating basket. We have so many gorgeous colors of glitter, and the pinks and greens are perfect for spring. This project is simple and involves only painting: you don’t even have to stay inside the lines! It will brighten a room and be a great part of your Easter display. You’ll find the instructions for the basket and eggs here.
