Simple, cute, and inexpensive!
The Daisy is not typically a flower I would choose to use, but the pure and simple nature of this flower seemed perfect for this project. Its fresh as a Daisy!
I love vintage packaging. When I came across these butter containers I just had to have them. I know you all understand what I am talking about!
This is Star Brand butter. Its made in Minnesota and its grade AA! The packaging is waxed on the outside making it ideal to hold the grass.
i simply put the boxes together. No directions needed...even for me! After putting them together I turned the top flaps to the inside.
Off to the local co-op tp buy some wheat grass! If you were to plan about a week ahead you could plant and grow your own grass inside the containers.
Remove the grass from its container and cut to fit inside the butter container. 
After planting give your grass a little hair cut. This particular style was all the rage with the boys when I was a little girl. The flat top or the crew cut....nice! 
Cutting the grass put a little Spring in my step. It smells like a freshly mowed lawn.
After planting the grass just add the Daisies. I left the stems long enough so I could plant them right in to the moist soil.
Do one for your powder room on Easter or a grouping for your table setting. I had 10 containers so I made them all up in a jiffy. These will be little gifts in place of Easter baskets for those I am spending the day with. Happy Easter!

First of all I want to wish each and every one of you a blessed Easter and say thank you for being members and sharing your creativity here at JUNKMARKET Style! I hope you all have a wonderful day with your family and friends. Often times I will make little Easter baskets for my adult friends and family. There are some things we never grow too old to enjoy! This year I decided to make tussie mussies instead. A flower bouquet does not contain chocolate calories that go straight to your hips. Te He! When all was said and done each of these florals cost about $3.00. Wow... no breaking the piggy bank this year!


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
Post your project photos
