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!

So, you wanna know how to make these little Easter baskets?


Let’s make something awesome…

Mini Yarn Trimmed Easter Baskets DIY craftFirst, you’re going to need these little chipwood baskets:

And this soft, colorful Buttercup yarn in “carnival”:

You’ll also need:


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.
