I ordered A a treasure basket on ebay, and now its here its bigger than i imagined,

any ideas for what i can put in?
We have
a flannel
some space blanket material
wooden spoon
tea strainer (metal)
wooden lemon juicer thing
a bath sponge (un used)
a tea spoon
a lemon
a silicon muffin case
one of those balls with spikey bits on it

It is looking rather empty

i am going to try and find a clean enough pinecone as well
I have a mini bottle of bailieys (glass) and am thinking drink the baileys, wash the bottle, ensure top is screwed on very tightly (or removed) and add that too

any other ideas?

ribbons
brushes - large decorating brush, nail brush, paintbrush, hairbrush,
comb
wooden/metal egg cups
large shells and pebbles
one of those "puffy" sponges
whisk
small tins
small boxes - jewellery boxes are perfect
feather

cotton reels
napkin ring
wooden door wedge
coaster
jar lids
lemon, orange or apple (replace regularly)
small basket

<borrows a few ideas>

I've also made some spice bags (cos spices are cheap here) - like little lavender sachets but filled with tumeric, nutmegs, peppercorns, ginger, cinnamon etc.

I did a treasure box with one of my old charges but mine only held a small selection of items. From what I remember I had

A lavender scented mini cusion
A fuzzy ball type thing
A mirror
A sponge
Some wool
Silky fabric

Can't remember what else???

I want to add to this list but I'm not sure I can think of anything that hasn't been mentioned! Will keep thinking...

I would make the sachets for spices. Buy a small amount of muslin or calico type fabric, cut into rectangles fold in half and sew round three sides to make a square pouch. Turn it inside out so the seam is inside, fill it with what ever you fancy then sew up the open side.

If you don't fancy making though you could probably order some from somewhere like Lakeland.  Smiley

I made then myself like ad_astra said. If you want cheap, good quality spices PM me - I can easily post some to you. I'm not making the sachets though  Wink

I made some pompoms with thick wool, finer wool, cashmere (leftover!) etc. too - dead simple to make but he really likes them.

Pom poms is a good one.

Pieces of fabric? Fleece, jersey, cotton etc. You could pick up some remnants in a fabric shop.

A wooden honey dipper makes an interesting one too.
