Evelyn’s $1.06 Easter Basket

I kinda waited until the last minute on this one, but Evelyn finally has an Easter basket for her first egg hunt tomorrow!

She has her basket from last year, but I just didn’t think that she’d be able to carry this huge thing around.

I can sometimes be a procrastinator, and I didn’t make it to Dollar Tree to buy a basket until last night.

This morning I took my $1.06 dollar store basket and got to work.  I had all of the other supplies that I needed in my “craft stash” in the basement.

I tied the tulle around the basket tutu style.

But once I got about 3/4 of the way around the basket, I realized that I didn’t have enough tulle.  Never fear though.  I had some ribbon that I could use to fill spots in.

Once I was finished making a tutu for the basket, I took a piece of ribbon and hot-glued it along the top edge.  Then I made a bow and hot glued it in the center of the basket.

And voila!  Evelyn now has a basket to put her eggs in!
