FLEETING MINIMALIST PHASE!

A couple of weeks ago, I posted my fireplace mantel during my minimalist phase. I know you are not surprised that the minimalist phase was short-lived on my mantel, but it’s not my fault! The Tablescaper left a comment telling me to get out some Easter bunnies for my mantel. Well, those bunnies in my holiday closet must have read her comment, because some of my favorite bunnies started hopping out of that closet and onto my mantel, and they brought some of my favorite eggs with them.

It is supposed to resemble an Easter basket. I will be “crafting” 3 more of these. The pipe cleaner “handle” is inserted in holes in the plastic lid, and the “basket” decorations are glued to the top of the plastic lid, so that my grandchildren will be able to open the cans to find treats inside for Easter Day. Thanks for challenging me to do something with a Pringles can, Liz!
