You know that plastic Easter egg grass you buy at the store for the baskets? It’s not that expensive or anything, but it sure creates an artificial look and feel. Try something new this year by forgoing the grass and using one of these five natural alternatives instead.
1. Tulip or daffodil leaves and/or petals. It’s that time of year where these spring bulbs are blooming anyway, so borrow a few leaves or petals to make a soft area for your Easter eggs. (Of course, we’re not advocating you steal leaves and/or petals from a neighbor or local park. Make sure they’re your own!)
2. Grass. Using real grass instead of fake grass? Genius! Take a pair of scissors to your lawn or just pull it with your hands.
3. Twigs. Gather twigs in your backyard and break them apart into small, manageable pieces.
4. Leaves. Your trees won’t mind.
5. Evergreen pieces. A little goes a long way with pieces of evergreen. It’ll definitely create a soft landing spot for eggs.
