Yes, that is real grass in there.
Every year, I grow grass in containers. I then decorate the containers in different ways. As Easter comes closer, I will be showing even more ways that I decorate grass containers.
My daughters have always teased me about this yearly grass growing project. Every year, I get, "oh sheesh, there goes mom, growing grass again." They really do think it's silly. But I like it and I betcha when they get to be my age, they will be doing it too. And when/if they read this, I imagine Rach rolling her eyes and chuckling and then making some wisecrack comment and Jen grinning that dimpled grin of hers in a way that shows me that she thinks I'm silly, but is just too sweet to actually say it.
The wool tulips are new this year. I've always used "dirtied" up prim tulips in the containers, and I still will but I thought some fresh spring-like colors would look nice in this old vintage basket.
For anyone that would like to make these, just cut out the tulip shapes, sew two together around the edges, leaving the top open. Stuff a little fiberfill inside the tulip to plump them up a bit and then insert a wooden skewer down through the center of the tulip. Tie a strip of green wool around the skewer for the leaves and there ya go. The tulips look really nice gathered together in a bunch too. I like these so much, I'm going to make more.
Happy Pink Saturday!
