Easter is right around the corner! Can we just take a moment to think about how fast has this year gone already? It’s craziness. Anyways, I usually take the easy way out when it comes to Easter and just buy a pre-made basket for my daughter, but I thought that it would be fun to make one this year. The best part about this is that it is actually WAY easier than I thought it would be and super fast to make. This took me less than 10 minutes to create.
Here’s what you will need:
Floral garland in any color
Floral stems or flowers in any color
Glue gun (optional)
The first thing that I did was put the grass inside the basket. It fit pretty snug so I didn’t have to glue or tie it in. I did have to cut the corners so that it would fit a little better.
Then, I took the floral garland (the white flowers) and wrapped them around the diameter of the basket. I secured it in the back with some hot glue and at various points on the basket. If you don’t have a glue gun, you can always use yarn or string to tie it to the basket.
Lastly, I snipped a few of the yellow stems and glued them to the sides as well as small pieces around the basket. Play around with the flowers and see how you like them, there are so many different colors and variations that you could use but I love the pink basket with the contrasting white and yellow. This is what the final result came out to be and I absolutely love it.
