Mini rope basket
Image: Lovely Indeed.
This basket is for those of you who aren’t fans of the oh-so-American “bigger is better” philosophy. These cute DIY mini rope baskets from the lovely ladies over at Lovely Indeed have just enough room for a couple treats and a sweet note (but they’re so easy to put together, you might just wind up making a few extras). All you need is rope and hot glue guns. That’s all. Seriously. And in case you’re thinking about the last time you used a hot glue gun and ended up an injured mess, never fear: This step-by-step instructional with pictures means no ER visits this Easter.
Ribbon and brass basket
Are you just looking to jazz up a tired old basket you already have on hand? Look no further. This DIY from DesignSponge revamps last year’s boring basket into a more modern edition using ribbon and brass tacks. We love the neutral look of the light tan ribbon, but you can go crazy with whatever patterns or colors suit your little one. The brass tacks offer a sophisticated embellishment that compliments the ribbon perfectly. Check out DesignSponge’s basket DIY for more details.
Square cloth basket
This basket is another versatile one you can use for year-round storage and organization — you know, once the flowers wilt and your kids have eaten all the Peeps. It does require some sewing, but don’t let that deter you from trying it out. This square cloth basket how-to also offers step-by-step instructions with photos, so you can follow along and make sure you’re not missing a beat. We love rolling the top down for that cuffed look, but feel free to tuck yours in or embellish it as you wish (pom-poms, anyone?).
