Transformed Egg Baskets


Is everyone else doing the countdown to spring?  My goal is to get projects done over the next five weeks so that I will ready to spend every free minute outdoors once it warms up. One of my winter projects was to transplant my passion flower plant, and my personal shopper at the office found some old egg baskets for me that now serve as a trellis.


I added a pretty little something to the egg basket. There just happened to be a hole, so I inserted a Courtly Check knob from MacKenzie-Childs.


This photo from Country Living Magazine was my inspiration for the basket trellis.  There are many types of egg baskets that can be found. Some have a globular shape, like a pumpkin, others are the more traditional bucket shape.

I also love this outdoor chandelier idea found on Pinterest. An egg basket filled with moss and candles and hung over the table.


Thank you for stopping by! I am joining Stonegable's Tutorials, Tips and Tidbits and Tablescaper's Seasonal Sunday.

  1. What a great idea, Debbie, to use the egg basket as a trellis for your passion vine. I love the CC knob on top to add a touch of whimsy. The chandelier idea is adorable, too. xo

  7. This is such a creative idea, Debbie!! Your courtly check knob adds that very special touch.
    I just bought a glass greenhouse terrarium & now you've inspired me to somehow add a bit of whimsy to it. Off to hunt down a treasured accent.
    Thanks for sharing this.

  8. I love what you did with the egg basket, it is very pretty. I admire you for being so focused on getting things done so you will have time to play later. I am having a hard time just keeping up and not even thinking very far ahead. I'm glad you shared your project because I would like to try making something similar when time allows.

  11. Debbie, this is a clever idea. Of course the CC knob is the crowning touch. '-) Will need to look for an egg basket while at Round Top this spring so I can try this idea.
