I pretty much STALK this aisle weekly for adorable finds…sometimes I swear I spend more in that section than I do elsewhere in the store. So imagine my excitement when I came across this adorable wire Easter basket for just $3.00!! I took it home determined that I had the perfect way to dress it up…that was last week. When I experienced a HUGE craft fail. Want to see it??005

Gah! Don’t laugh. A scrappy basket seemed cute at first, but really not so much once you get it finished. Long story short, I ended up cutting it all off, wasting two hours and 4 fat quarters of fabric, and trying again. This one turned out cuter anyways 🙂

So here’s what I did instead. I used burlap garland that I had from a Christmas project and I folded it in half and weaved it in and out of my basket and then cut and glued the ends….

After the whole basket was wrapped, I used a round, hard paint brush to dab on polka dots of fun easter colored paints I already had on hand.

It only took a few minutes and I had my polka dots all around my little basket

The whole project took less than $10 to make and it’s a unique way to display Easter treats!

  3. I love this basket and want to make it for my granddaughter. Where can I find the wire basket? I have searched everywhere and can’t seem to find it! 🙁
