This Lilly Pulitzer inspired Easter basket craft is easy to make, fun for the kids will set you back all of $2.00 and will give your spring decor a groovy vintage 70’s vibe. Want to see how it’s made?
The craft was inspired by a felt remnant I found at Michael’s. I had no idea they even existed, but they had a ton of these fun prints in felt in a one square foot size. I purchased two pieces, and at the time, wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with them, other than something fun for spring. The second I came home and saw the Kleenex box on my desk, I knew it was a match made in heaven.
Kleenex or Tissue Box
Fun felt fabric – 2 pieces
1. Cut off a one-inch strip from both pieces of fabric (for the handle).
2. Apply Mod Podge to the Kleenex box and wrap the larger felt piece. You will want some to go on the inside. I didn’t worry about covering the bottom because who really sees that right?
3. Let it dry, and apply more Mod Podge and the second felt piece to cover the box completely.
4. Apply Mod Podge to glue the strips together to make a handle.
5. Use hot glue to apply the handle to the inside top of the box.
6. Fill with grass and your favorite goodies!
Lilly’s Inspired Easter Basket
You can use any fabric you like of course. I love the fun and groovy vintage 70’s vibe of this Lilly Pulitzer inspired fabric. At a gazillionth of the cost of course.
The original plan was to personalize and embellish the basket a little more, but the print is so powerful on its own, I decided to let it speak for itself. It would be better to use a plain colored felt if you wanted to personalize it for your family members.
With the long, cold winter and all of the snow we’ve been having, this bright Easter basket is a much-needed dose of spring in the house.
Add some “grass” and Easter eggs or any other fun Easter goodies and you are all set!
Your Next Step…
Love, hugs, and loving Lilly!HERE
