Beautiful Easter Basket by Christine
Ok, I will admit it. I have a weakness for chocolate. So I’m so glad that most holidays feature sweets as part of the celebration. Easter, of course, is no exception. In fact, it’s the best holiday for chocolate and sweets in my book. So when I saw that big chocolate bunny created by Lori, I just knew he would be the perfect thing to put into my woven Easter basket.
First, I cut out the basket. I used some woodgrain paper from Lori Whitlock’s paper for Echo Park. The basket went together very easily but I would suggest cutting out two handles so that you can have both sides of the handle look the same and so that it is a bit sturdier. Lori has a video on her YouTube channel that shows you the exact steps to putting this basket together.
Next, I added this cute little bow as decoration. Wow, what fun these little bows are to put together. I am definitely going to do more of these in my future projects.
Here is my little chocolate bunny. I thought it would be fun to cut out his bow a couple more times and attach the extra pieces with foam adhesive. I love the dramatic look. I also cut out a mirror image of him and the bows sothat you could see him from both sides.
I think that this is going to be a cute little table decoration for my foyer table.
