DIY Spring Baskets
Look at this adorable Spring Basket I made for one of my daughter’s friends. So cute. I have a fascination with strawberry and fruit baskets. I collected quite a few of these on one of our many RV adventures on the road. I found most of them at local farmers markets. They were all so friendly to share.
Lately I have used these baskets to display gift towels, crocheted items, and now treats for my daughter’s friends.
I gathered up my supplies; cute Strawberry basket, trusty hot glue gun and glue sticks, hole punch, frilly pink ribbon, pink cardstock, stickles glitter glue, “treat” themed stickers, and shiney pipe cleaners. All of these items I had stashed away in my scrap room.
I punched a hole centered on two sides of the basket, fit the pipe cleaner on each end to make the handle, and cut off the excess. I hot glued the ribbon around the top of the basket (cutting off the excess) for the decorative trim. I then took some colorful stickers, backed them with pink card stock, and decorated all four sides of the basket with my trusty hot glue gun. Its not shown in the final picture, but I also made a tag out of the card stock with her friend’s name printed, outlined the tag and other stickers with the glitter glue. You gotta have some glitter. Right!
Once your basket is decorated with the glitter, frills, and sparkles, just fill with whatever goodies or treats for the occassion. I filled the basket with sparkley tissue, candy, and lip glosses. Her friend loved it all.
