Egg-xtra Special Easter Decorations

Easter seems to be one of my favorite holidays to make for.  I think it's because it features my favorite color scheme:-)

I still had some scraps leftover from the bundle I used to make our Easter Zig Zag table runner and matching napkins.

For the basket I used Noodlehead's fabulous Berry Basket tutorial.  I didn't have any Peltex 72F so I used Decor-bond on both the outside and lining fabrics which seems to be stiff enough for the basket to stand, even using linen for the lining.

Then I whipped up some eggs using this egg-cellent tutorial from retro mama.  

And of course put my captive audience to work on stuffing duty:-)  

I'm not sure it was as fun as dying actual Easter eggs but they got to do both.

And the result was the perfect complement to the bunny cake and a lovely addition to our Easter decor!
