Posh Project: TuTu Easter Baskets

Just in time for Easter we have an awesome DIY (Do-It-Yourself) project for our Posh Mumsies — TuTu Easter Baskets!!

TuTu Easter Baskets

Check out the Feather Boa “grass” — Cute, right?!

Of course we could’ve gone with a wicker Easter Basket complete with traditional grass and sugary sweets…but we wouldn’t be Posh Mumsies if we took the easy way out, now would we?

Want to make a TuTu Easter Basket for your Poshette? Deets are below.

Supplies:

Crafts

  • Wire Easter Basket (Found Here)
  • Tulle (we used three colors per basket, 2 yards per color)
  • Feather Boa
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon (Optional–for the Handle–just to add some flare!)
  • Glue Gun and Glue Stick

First, place your wire basket on a flat surface. NOTE: This is an important step! Please don’t skip!

Now, Take a before picture! You want people to see and appreciate the transformation! 🙂

Before

Okay, Let’s put on our serious faces now. Here we go:

1. Place your tulle on a flat surface and fold in half with the fold facing you. (Tulle is usually already folded in half from the fabric store, so skip this step if it is)

2. Starting at the end of the fold, cut 1 – 1 1/2 inch strips.

3. Cut each strip in half on the fold.

4. Put your two separate strips together and fold in half. Starting at the fold, push tulle halfway through a hole on your wire basket.

5. Bring the folded end of the tulle over the upper edge of the basket (towards the other end of the tulle) loop through, and pull. Alternate with next color and repeat until all of the holes on the top row of your Easter Basket are covered.

6. (Optional) Using the ribbon of your choice, wrap around the handle until covered. Secure edges with a dot of hot glue.

7. Fill Basket with Feather Boa.

I wonder what kind of goodies the Dapper Daddies are going to fill these baskets with?! 🙂

Sorry!! We didn’t take pics of steps 4, 5, & 6…we were busy gabbing and forgot! As a consolation prize, here’s a pic of our cuties-on-duty having fun with the feather boas.
