Potted Easter Baskets

This DIY Easter Basket Upcycles an Old Belt and a Flower Pot

— February 20, 2015 — Eco
Considering the spring is filled with themes of renewal and regrowth, this DIY Easter basket from HGTV is a fitting way to usher in the warmer weather.

As well as saving you a trip from the store to buy a basket, this alternative project may even be something that you can make from items that you already have at home. The upcycling project involves an old belt and an unused terracotta flower pot, which can be cleverly assembled using a couple of rivets. Filled with straw or paper, this basket provides tons of space for treats like candied eggs, chocolate Easter bunnies and even carrot-shaped goodie bags. Best of all, once the basket has been used for Easter, it can be emptied out and used once again as a flower pot.
Trend Themes
1. Upcycling Diys - As people become more environmentally conscious, there's a rising trend in creating DIY projects that upcycle old items, such as the DIY Easter basket made from an old belt and flower pot.

3. Alternative Easter Baskets - With a growing focus on sustainability and uniqueness, there's an emerging trend towards creating alternative Easter baskets using unconventional materials and methods, like the DIY basket made from upcycled items.
Industry Implications
1. Craft and DIY - The craft and DIY industry has an opportunity to capitalize on the rising trend of upcycling and environmentally-conscious projects like the DIY Easter basket.
2. Home Decor and Gardening - The home decor and gardening industries can benefit from creating products that serve multiple purposes, like the DIY Easter basket that can also be used as a flower pot.
3. Easter and Holiday - The Easter and holiday industry has an opportunity to innovate and expand their product offerings by creating alternative Easter baskets that stand out during the holiday season, like the DIY Easter basket made from upcycled materials.
