Bring the Outdoors in with a Fabric Easter Basket Wall Planter - It Holds it's Shape with HeatNBond Craft Interfacing

I am so tired of cold weather and can't wait to get outside and plant flowers.  Here is an easy way to bring the garden inside and it's a great way to decorate for Easter too.  In fact, one of these little wall planters would make the perfect Easter gift or even for May Day baskets.  Making these in seasonal colors like the ones found in Camelot Fabric's Kaleidoscope collection brings spring indoors.

The full tutorial for these planter baskets is on the ThermOWeb blog today.
