I decorated an Easter basket for my little girl today. I went to Michael's Saturday to look for ideas. The Easter section left me wanting, so I wandered over to the scrapbooking section. Here is was I gathered:
- Basket: had a liner, I removed it
- Ribbon (green, sheer, thin)
- Pre-cut ribbon 1 yd each (blue, green, pink, varying widths)
- bandana flowers
- stick on rhinestones
I hot-glued the blue on top of the green
Then, flipped the blue/green over and hot glued the pink to the back of the green
This is how it turned out. I then glued the ribbon combo to the basket. I left the wicker "lip" at the top.
The thin green sheer ribbon will wrap around the handle. I started by tying a bow to one side. Then, I cut off the excess ribbon. I hot-glued the bow to make it stand correctly, instead of the bows flopping over.
Here is the green ribbon wrapped around the handle
There was still ribbon left over. I like dangles, so I cut equal-length sections, and made it dangle!
Each flower has some bling in the middle
