For the past couple weeks, I have been thinking about the fact that Easter is fast approaching... But I have done nothing to prepare for it. I think we will probably be coloring our Easter eggs on Saturday night!
Today I found myself with a little free time, so I decided to try an idea that my mom sent me last week. She found a picture of an Easter basket that looked like a tutu, with tulle hanging from the top edge.
I have a lot of tulle at my house that was left over from the tutu making station at my baby shower. I pulled out all of the pieces that were already cut to an appropriate tutu length :) Recently I found a perfect old basket just taking up space in our garage, so I figured this would be a great upcycle.
I folded each piece of tulle in half then stuck the loop through a gap at the top of the basket. Then I pulled both ends through the loop. It took me 30-45 minutes to cover the entire top of the basket. Next I took one long piece that I found in the pile and wrapped the handle of the basket with it.
I'm really happy with the way this turned out. I wasn't exactly sure how to create this or whether it would look like the picture, but it was relatively easy and looks cheery!
