DIY Goodwill Easter Basket Fit For a Princess
Wouldn’t the princess in your life be delighted to carry this DIY Tutu Easter Basket? It would also make a spectacular centerpiece for your Easter table.
You can make your own one-of-a-kind Easter basket. You can find many of the supplies at your favorite thrift store. We found ours at our favorite Goodwill of Orange County store.
What You Need:
Basket – easily found at your favorite Goodwill store. Look for one with open weaving.
Tulle – can be purchased for just a few dollars at your craft store. We used 2 spools which were 20 yards each. We cut 34 strips of purple tulle and 34 strips of pink tulle. Depending on the size of your basket, you made need a little more or less.
Hot Glue Gun
Easy step by step instructions:
Step 1: Cut the tulle – First cut pieces to 6″ x 12″ (use as many colors as you want). Using two pieces of the cut tulle, fold in half horizontally twice to make a skinny long piece. Then fold the piece in half horizontally.
Step 2: Take the folded side of the tulle and push through a hole in the basket (if necessary use a tool to push through tight woven baskets)
Step 3: Complete a slip knot. Do this by finding the hole near the folded side of the tulle, pull the other end of the tulle through the hole to make a knot. (Make sure the excess tulle hangs on the outside of the basket)
Step 4: Placing the knots close together, repeat until the whole basket is covered in tulle slip knots.
Step 5: With the ribbon, wrap the handle and secure with a little hot glue. (Glue on the bottom side of the handle so that it does not show.)
