Making Little Felt Easter Baskets

Growing up I always loved receiving treats for Easter (but what child doesn’t?). No matter how little or how much I was fortunate enough to receive, I’d proudly display my Easter gifts in a row on top my headboard. Over the following weeks I’d slowly pick away at the yummy treats inside.

I’m so glad to continue this tradition with my daugher, nephew and nieces. These adorable DIY felt Easter baskets are just the right size to fit a small helping of candies, mini eggs and other sweets. You can easily customize each basket to suit your little one’s favorite goodies.

Materials
  

  • Felt sheet 9”x12” in charcoal
  • Felt scraps in white, light pink and dark pink (or any coordinating colors of your choosing)
  • Fabric scissors
  • Easter Egg Basket Printable
  • Glue gun with clear hot glue sticks

Instructions
 

  • Print off template.

  • Cut out the egg pattern in white felt.
  • Cut out the decorative pieces (stripes and zig zag) in any color of your choosing.
  • Preheat the hot glue gun.
  • Align the decorative egg pieces onto the cut egg shape for placement. Working with one decorative piece at a time, apply glue to the backside of the stripe and press onto the egg. Repeat for the other stripe and zigzag cut pieces.
  • Turn the prepared egg face down and apply glue to the backside. Working quickly and carefully, press the egg onto the top section of the cut box pattern as shown. Take care to not place it too low on the one side.
  • To assemble the box, work one corner at a time. Add a line of hot glue to one cut corner edge as shown and overlap with the other cut piece. Press together to form corner.
    Repeat for remaining 3 corners.
  • Add a bit of glue to the ends of the long rectangular piece and attach it to the inside of felt box to form the basket handle.
  • Fill the finished felt basket with treats or alternatively you can fill a little plastic bag with treats and place it inside the felt box.
