@cmsmith10: To make an Easter basket with real grass in it, you need the following items: the basket, winter rye or grass seed, aluminum foil, potting soil, and plastic wrap.
A couple of weeks before Easter, line your basket with aluminum foil and then fill with potting soil. Sprinkle rye seed over the top of the potting soil. Cover the seed with about 1/4inch of soil and then moisten.
You will need to cover the basket with plastic wrap to keep the moisture in and place it in a warm area. The grass will sprout in a few days. After it sprouts, you can remove the plastic wrap. Keep it watered as needed.
By Easter, it will be full of beautiful green grass. You can do further decorating, if you choose.
