Hey everyone! Today I am going to share how to make this adorable, small Easter basket. Easter is next month and right now it is the perfect time to craft up these easy Easter baskets.
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with Fairfield World and I received products/compensation in exchange for my craft idea. But all opinions are 100% my own. Some of the links used here are affiliate, read my full disclosure HERE.
I love putting together my boys Easter baskets and adding stuff they love. But at their ages (9 and 11) they really aren’t into the stuff that is usually added to an Easter basket anymore. They would rather have gift cards to spend on their video games or pokemon cards. So that is where these small Easter baskets come into play. They are the perfect size for items like gift cards, trading cards, and some candy. To make these Easter baskets you will need:
- Fairfield World Oly*Fun in your choice of colors
- Fairfield Poly-Fil Premium Fiber Fill
- Low temp hot glue gun
- Cricut Maker
- Cricut fabric mat
- Cricut pen (black)
First thing I did after gathering my supplies was to cut out the basket and egg pattern with my Cricut Maker. Here is the design I used, just change out the name on the egg and you are ready to go.
Next, I folded along the slits and started forming the basket. I hot glued each tab and side one by one.Here is the basket once I hot glued all the sides.Next, I needed to add the handle. The handle has a little tab on each end that you insert into a slot on the side of the basket. I took it a step further and added a small dab of hot glue just to make sure it stayed in place.How cute does it look while fully assembled!!!Next I am going to put together the “name tag”. I decided to have my Cricut Maker write my recipients name on this little egg cut out. But I hot glued two pieces of the egg cut out so that I could stuff it with Fairfield Poly-Fil Premium Fiber Fill. When hot gluing the egg sides leave a side open to be able to add the stuffing.Once the hot glue dries stuff your name tag egg with some Fairfield Poly-Fil Premium Fiber Fill. Then hot glue the end shut. This is how my egg name tag turned out.Now, I added some paper shreds to my basket and filled it with candies as well as place the name tag on the side.Remember this Easter basket is the perfect size to add; a gift card, trading cards, candy, cash, nail polish, or chapstick. I hope this Easter basket inspired you to make your own. Happy crafting!!!!
