Miniaturize them, adorn them with color-flecked yarn, and fill them with flowers and it all just makes me happy!
You can arrange these little delights on stacked cake stands or place them on festive Easter plates with a name tag in lieu of place cards–your options are endless!
Or how about filling them with cheddar bunny crackers for pre-meal snacking at the kiddo’s table…
They make the perfect pull-apart centerpiece-turned-take-home-teat! You’ve seen those pull-apart cupcake cakes, right? Let’s do it with centerpieces too!
How fun is it going to be to have your guests reach over to the centerpiece and take home a cute little basket of hydrangeas at the end of their Easter brunch?
So, you wanna know how to make these little Easter baskets?
Let’s make something awesome…
And this soft, colorful Buttercup yarn in “carnival”:
You’ll also need:
- craft glue
- white acrylic paint (I used DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint, White Wash)
- paint brushes
Have your little assistant paint two coats on each basket. Allow the baskets to dry for at least 2 hours.
Unravel the yard and cut strips of each color. Separate the strips into piles (this will save time if you have a lot of baskets to cover).
Apply a line of glue to the basket handle and apply a strip of yarn, pressing down firmly. Trim the ends. Apply another line of glue around the mouth of the basket and apply another strip of yarn. Trim if needed.
Allow baskets to dry overnight before handling.
