I got the idea for this Easter basket after my kids had some friends over and they went through a new box of donuts in a matter of minutes.
Something about the box shape screamed Easter basket to me. Go figure...
It's really a quick, fun project that you can customize in so many different ways.
The supplies you will need:
two sheets of 12x12 scrapbook paper
crochet or embroidery thread
I cut off the lid and covered the outside of the box with a piece of scrapbook paper using mod podge. I was able to cover the entire box and still have paper left to use for the handle. I also attached the handle using mod podge.
For the "Easter grass" I folded a coordinating piece of scrapbook paper accordion style. Then I cut it into narrow strips and added it to the bottom of the basket.
To give it a little more style, I used a hole punch all around the basket edge and then crocheted all around.
I just crocheted a basic scallop stitch all around.
To finish it off I stitched using crochet thread on the handle.
I filled it with an assortment of Easter eggs including ones I decoupaged a few years ago.
In just a few minutes I turned a donut box into a super cute Easter basket with things I already had on hand. Can't wait to hear what you think.
