Ice Cream Basket DIY

Good Morning,
Today I have my first Easter inspired craft project for you guys. Today's project is super easy to make and most of the materials you probably have laying around in your house or freezer....

Enjoy,



Ice Cream Basket DIY

Supplies  
Small ice cream container ( mine came from Mejier)
Hole Punch
Scissors
Tissue Paper ( not pictured)
Scrapbooking Paper
Tape (optional)

 2 brads

* This project changed a lot when I was making it, so thats why some of the products are not in the supply picture*

Step 1: Take your tissue paper and tare it up into small pieces, then glue the pieces onto your ice cream container (picture 1). It may take many layers to cover your container complete, but when your done you should have something like picture 2.  

Step 2: Then take your scrapbooking paper and ribbon and decorate your little container. All I did was glue some "happy easter" scrapbooking paper to my conatiner then I glue another type of scrapbooking paper on top. To finsh it off I hot glued a little bow to the front. 

Step 3: Now take your craft knife and make two slits on each side of your container. 

Step 4: Now cut a strip of scrapbooking paper and with your hole punch, punch two holes on each end of your strip of paper. Then take your brad and feed it through the hole in your strip of paper and the silt in your container. 




Then your done, add some fake grass and some candy and your little basket is completed.

  4. What a great and easy idea! We have "traditional" Easter baskets for my family - my mom handmade them when I was really young, but this would be so fun for a party and for my 11 year old sister!

    Great DIY :)
