DIY Easter Grass for Baskets

I don't know about you, but that pesky Easter grass that you buy for Easter baskets ends up EVERYWHERE in my house! I find it for months after Easter, sticking to just about every surface in our house.

I decided that we needed an alternative Easter grass for our baskets this year, so I started shredding various papers that I found around our house. Not only are you recycling paper, but the shredded paper doesn't stick to anything when your kids dump their baskets all over the floor :)

Here are a few ideas (you just need a shredder and some paper):

Shredded Scrapbook Paper or Construction Paper

TIP: To make your "grass" look fuller, and not just lay flat in the basket, take a handful at a time and scrunch it in your hand.
