Easter is just around the corner and I needed one last project for the FunLab Easter Camp. I decided that our sheep, bunnies and ducklings would not be complete without an Easter basket for our gang to take all their craft projects home in. Furthermore, I wanted to slip in at least one recycling based project into their busy camp schedule… Come see how I made it.
You will need:
Colored tissue paper
Let’s get started:
Step 1: Turn your plastic container upside down on your work area.
Step 2: Paint part of the box with lamination glue.
Step 3: Cover with small pieces of tissue paper.
Step 4: Paint over the paper with glue. Continue until the entire outside of the container is covered. Let dry.
Step 5: Make the handle. Thread wooden beads onto a chenille stem.
Step 6: Pierce two holes per side in the dry plastic container.
Step 7: Thread the chenille stem through the holes.
Step 8: Twist the chenille stem together to form a handle.
Step 9: Slide a bead over the twisted area to hide it.
Step 10: Repeat on the other side.
Your basket is done just in time for Easter!
