My Easter Baskets and Flower Pot Conundrum

I bought these baskets for 10p each from a car boot sale last summer.  As soon as I saw them I thought Easter!

But after adding flowers round the top, it soon became clear that to fill them with good quality chocolates etc. would cost me a fortune, so I thought I would put them in the staffroom at work as they are for people to fill themselves, for Mothers Day, Easter, Birthdays etc.

I’ve also had these miniature flower pots and baskets in my craft room for years and years but this year I am determined to use them ……

But you can see that they are such awkward sizes, a cream egg is a bit swamped in the larger pot, although I know I could use a bit of tissue paper to pad it out and the small pots are too big for wrapped mini eggs.  I guess that’s why I haven’t used them after all this time. So I will be carrying one of each around with me to see what I can find to fit them! Unless someone has any other  suggestions……….
