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.

 

Directions

 

Supplies:

1.  Mod Podge

2.  Kleenex or Tissue Box

3.  Fun felt fabric

 

Directions:

1.  Cut off a one inch strip from both pieces (for the handle).

2.  Apply Mod Podge to the Kleenex box and wrap the 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 Easter basket goodies!

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.
