These little baskets are seriously cute and so tiny. I finished them off with a small bow of twine around the center and a teeny bit of green paper shred to stand in as grass. If you are in need of something cute and easy for your Easter table, these would make for adorable place cards. Just add a tag or slip of paper with the guests name.
