What I Did This Easter… DIY Easter Basket for Kids

DIY Easter BasketHello Friends… Happy Easter!! Hope you all had a great time.

I am a festivity-addict.. I just don’t miss an occasion that I can celebrate. Seems like those households in daily soaps which have conquered the prime time… eh?? Now I got a companion who is equally crazy, if not more, about festivals and celebrations, my 4 year old daughter. This Easter season we did a few simple crafts together, which I will post sometime soon. As we were googling the other day, Doll was all impressed by Easter baskets and wanted one for her. That’s when I decided to create one at home. Up-cycling or Trash to Treasure as I like calling it, has always impressed me. I decided to up-cycle something that I can find around the house to make Dolly’s Easter Basket.

Trash to Treasure – DIY Easter Basket

Materials Required:

· A plastic container

· Foam sheet

· Embellishments – Lace, Ribbon etc.

· Glue

Method:

1. Take a plastic can, preferably one with a handle. I chose a yogurt can. An ice-cream tub with a handle will also be great.

2. Cover the can with a foam sheet. You could also use any other plain decorative paper.

3. Create your own embellishments or use readymade ones.

I had a great Easter as I managed to get a sweet smile on my kid’s face with this simple craft.

Try it out and I am sure you will love the reward you get Smile. I would be happy to know  how it turned out..
