1st Easter Basket

Since this is my daughter’s 1st Easter I wanted to find the perfect Easter Basket. The only problem…I can’t find anything I like. I understand most baskets sold today have characters or are super cheesy!!! But I wanted something that is more simple and unique.

So, as usual I decided to make my own! I started off finding a basket I liked, this was from Michael’s and cost about $10.

I originally was planning on painting it but then realized I’ve been wanting to use Baker’s Twine for awhile now. I already had some teal, but then found this at Target.

I started wrapping the handle with the twine by tying it in a knot then wrapping until I was done with that color.

I continued this till I had the handle how I wanted it.

Next, I got out my stain. I used the same color that I stained my DIY Mail Basket, which was using Minwax Wood Stain in “Classic Gray 271″.

Finally, I added these cute bows I found at Target in their gift section.

I also ended up removing some of the Baker’s twine at the strap, it was too much against the bows.

Now, She’ll have the perfect Easter Basket for years to come!
