The Easter Basket Sweater

Hello Readers. It is almost Easter. I found this Easter themed sweater at a clothes swap a few months ago and thought it was perfect for the holiday. The only problem was I didn't like anything about this sweater.

This sweater with the little bunny is way too cute. Like overly cute. Like too sweet cute. It was also VERY heavy. It was heavy as in thick and warm. And it was literally heavy. The material and the appliques and all the beading made this feel like 15 pounds of cute.
It's OK, I had a plan.

I started with this wire basket from my bike. I just unhooked it and put it on the front porch. It is sturdy but that's it. It isn't very attractive.

I put the sweater over the basket and tucked the top of the sweater and the sleeves inside. I didn't cut or alter it, I just tucked it in. It's the easiest project ever!

I put some purple tulips inside. They are in little containers. They matched the purple tulips on the sweater. When they really wilt, I can plant them in my yard.

The sweater basket helped brighten up m porch. I love flowers. I like to put them on the front porch so I can see them when I come in and out. I don't think you can ever have too many. Until I get some more flowers this sweater is a cute addition to my porch.

Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.
 And a very happy Passover and Easter, if you celebrate those holidays.
 *Year end update-I saved the sweater to display next Easter. I hope I never have to wear it again.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up?
I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% positive.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, i chose to use the goggle blog site,
I have heard good things about too.
They are both very easy to set up. There are probably a lot more out there I don't know of. You should check out as much as you can to compare.
Good luck!
