How Would You . . .

Happy Easter! Did someone in your family or circle of friends receive a cute basket from the Easter Bunny today? If so, I bet all of you eco-savvy Casa readers aren't going to just throw that basket out. Instead, think about how you could reuse it!

For this latest How Would You post, I'd like you to think outside the home-decorating box and find some creative ways to repurpose a woven Easter basket. How would you use it in your home? In what room? For what purpose? Would you use it for holding bath products? For craft projects? For jewelry? Add anything to it? Repaint or refinish? Leave a comment below and let me know how you'd fit a woven Easter basket in your home.

Re-use for their intended purpose or sometimes I'll remove the handle, spray paint and use for small items in the bathroom, on a nightstand or on bookshelves.

My family did the same thing as endomental. My mom probably paid quite a bit for our baskets which were hand made pieces of art, she uses my brother's as a sewing room catchall, and my sister's basket now holds the worlds tiniest potted cactus. I saw mine yesterday for the first time in years she and my dad had filled it to overflowing with Easter treats for my son (the first human grandchild), our dog, and a couple of treats for my husband and me. I think as long as they hold up and look as good as they do we'll keep using those baskets. My husband didn't believe me when I identified the baskets as being almost 25 years old.

I use it on the kitchen table for fruits and veggies.

I always find uses for leftover baskets (not necessarily Easter baskets)...usually to organize bath/beauty products in my linen closet and under the sink. I also have a few larger baskets holding important documents and other paperwork in my office/spare bedroom.

We treat our Easter baskets like we do our Christmas stockings. We all have one that we re-use year after year. They're packed away after the holiday, along with the reuseable green bedding.
