What is not to love about Easter? Although I do not have any little ones of my own I still love to make things for the little tikes in my life. Here is a DIY for the "Tu The Treasure" Tutu Easter Basket I made for my little buddy Emily.
As most of you already know, I believe DIY should not only be fun and creative, but affordable. Again, I was able to buy everything I needed from the local dollar store making this a less than $5 project.
Here is what you'll need:
♥ A Wire Basket
♥ (3) Three Yard Nylon Organza like ribbon in different shades
♥ (2) Glittery Butterflies
Taking your ribbon...
cut in half length wise. I chose ribbon that was approximately four inches wide. I cut it, down the middle, so that it was more like two inches wide. You will then cut your pieces into approximately seven inches in length. Your end result should be pieces that are about two inches wide by seven inches long. If using wire edged ribbon, as I did, you will also need to cut the wire edging off to create the tutu look.
Next, take a piece of your ribbon...
and loop through the weaved space closest to the rim. Bring through until ends meet and tie into a single not. Make sure the not is nice and tight. Not only will this ensure you do not lose pieces during the "hunt", but that the color shows true against the rim.
Repeat this step...
alternating between color choices. As so!
Once you have surrounded your basket...
fasten some glittery butterflies for some extra sweetness! The butterflies I found at the dollar store had little wires already attached to the back to make for a very easy addition.
Viola! Tutu Easter Basket fit for a princess!
Although a little tedious, this project is adorable and sure to be the center of attention. She'll be sure to distract her egg collecting opponents while having a darling place to store her bounty!
Stayed tuned for the DIY for the basket I made for little Allie!
