I’m so excited about this month’s #MakeIt Challenge! I love spring and this month is all about Easter. This Unique Easter Basket for Kids is going to be quick, easy, frugal and oh so fun!
Most of what is used for these “baskets” are things you probably already have around the house! So, let’s get to it!
- Paper Mache Box (We purchased our at Hobby Lobby with our 40% off coupon!)
- Fun Foam Letters (We had this in the Art Containers I made as a gift to the Grand kids)
- Washi Tape! (You know how I love Washi Tape!)
- Colored Paper
- Mod Podge
I thought it would be fun for my daughter and daughter-in-laws to make up the baskets for their kids. They had so much fun putting these together! So here they are working away!
Measure out your paper to fit your box.
Cut it! See my youngest grandson. He is chewing on a cold washcloth for his teeth! I wanted you to see that this is so easy, you can do it with a child on your lap!
Once all the pages have been cut, apply Mod Podge to your box and lay out the paper. Make sure to smooth it as you go so you don’t get wrinkles in the paper.
Apply your washi tape on all the edges.
Add your ribbon and start decorating your baskets! The girls made each one with each child’s favorites!
I think they did a wonderful job!! The kids are excited to use their new baskets!
