Who doesn't love Peeps?? Ok, so they're pretty gross to eat, but oh so cute to decorate with! Here is a tutorial for this adorable felt Easter basket. It's pretty quick and easy to make. Feel free to embellish it in any way you like! Get creative and cut out some other felt shapes - flowers, bunnies, have fun with it! What you'll need: an empty cereal box, felt in several colors, a hot glue gun, needle and embroidery floss, scissors, marker, and My Free Pattern Check out our Top Ten EASTER BASKET ideas.
I cut my felt to be a tad larger than the cardboard, to make sewing a blanket stitch along the edges a little easier.
I used a cute blanket stitch around the top and bottom of the basket. I like how it turned out and feel that it holds it all together really well.
Once you've gone this far, glue or sew the final sides of the basket together to form a basket. Cut out the bottom piece and cover in felt. Slide bottom piece in from the top and glue in place or sew. I sewed mine in place as seen in the pictures at the top of this post. Cover the handle in felt and glue in place or sew together. I glued mine onto the basket from the inside. Have fun! Let me know if you have any questions and I will do what I can to help! ~Sarah
