Easter Basket

Supply List to create:
An empty Basket
Paper Easter Grass
Styrofoam Eggs
Pink Paislee Pixie Sticks Glitter
Pink Paislee Chipboard Accents
Bazzill Flowers and other misc flowers
Buttons and Kaiser rhinestones
Chipboard letters
Misc Ribbon
1 sheet patterned Paper
Mod Podge and foam brush
Hot glue gun

Steps to Create:

1. First cut your patterned paper into even strips the size of the edge of your basket. My basket was 3" inches so I cut 3 3" strips. Then I adhered them together to make one long strip. Attach to your basket using a hot glue gun. Cut the excess off in the back and glue the seam together.

2. Coat your eggs lightly with Mod Podge. Cover in glitter. If you know a good way to do this without getting glitter everywhere, awesome. I used small tuperwares and poured the glitter in them. It worked ok. Remove eggs and set aside to dry.

3. Attach chipboard pieces to front and add flowers over them. Adhere a tied button with glue dot for center. Add Chipboard title and a Rhinestone for decoration.

4. Wrap handle with ribbon and tie off at ends. Add 2 more strips of ribbon on both sides. Hot glue a flower over knot and add Rhinestones for centers.

5. Fill basket with paper grass and add dried eggs. Enjoy your new decoration!
