This is such a simple project I debated whether it was worth posting or not. In the end I decided simple projects are the best projects right? This is something anyone can do and I think it makes a very basic and inexpensive basket look so adorable.
Here is how you can customize your little basket in about 5 minutes:
I found these cute little baskets at Target in the Bullseye section for $5 each. The same look can easily be duplicated by winding yarn around the handle of the basket or a plain basket works perfectly too.
So I started with a cute basket and added some butterflies and flowers I already had on hand in my craft supplies. I picked up some bumble bees and a pinwheel at the craft store and let the hot gluing begin.
Just a few dabs of hot glue on the back and some faux green stuffed inside and that is it.
Here is the basket for my big girl- all stuffed and ready for Easter:
I think this turned out really cute and my girls were absolutely delighted. These butterflies are very inexpensive and can be found at Dollar Stores or craft stores. Just one bunch of $1 faux flowers goes a long way so basically $2 per basket to add a little customization and personality to an otherwise plain basket.
