Deliver Easter treats in a creative, flower-filled carrier.

YOU'LL NEED (makes 1 basket):

  • Faux forsythia branches (save-on-crafts.com
  • Scissors 
  • Hot-glue gun 
  • Small, shallow plastic or metal bowl 
  • Wire cutters 
  • Wire coat hanger 
  • Coffee can 
  • 20" ribbon, ½" wide 
  • 12" ribbon, ¾" wide

 

  1. Remove individual flowers from branches using scissors. Glue blossoms one at a time to bowl. Continue until exterior of bowl is fully covered.
  2. Use wire cutters to snip a 10" length of wire coat hanger. Wrap wire around coffee can or other cylindrical object to create rounded handle shape.
  3. Glue end of ½"-wide ribbon to one end of wire. Carefully wrap ribbon around wire until wire is fully covered. Trim excess ribbon if needed and secure with hot glue. Let dry.
  4. Position wire over bowl so ends are opposite each other. Glue one end to bowl and hold in place 1 to 2 minutes until completely dry. Repeat for other end of wire handle. (Note: Do not use the decorative handle to lift the basket.)
  5. Tie ¾"-wide ribbon into bow. Trim ends and affix to handle using hot glue.
