A simple way to add an instant Easter touch is by adding subtle yet festive accent and centerpieces throughout high traffic areas such as hallways, living rooms, and kitchens.

 

Using artificial flowers and a bit of glue, we created a stunning and sweet DIY Easter basket that can be filled with candies, chocolates, or even decorative Easter eggs.

  • 1 woven basket
  • Artificial flowers (we used Easter lilies and yellow tweedia flowers)
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun or similar adhesive
  • Floral wire (optional)

Directions for Floral DIY Easter Basket:

  1. Prepare your flowers by cutting off the flower, leaving only about ½ to 1 inch stem. floral-diy-easter-basket_cut-flowers
  2. Add a tiny dab of glue to the bottom of the flower, then poke the stem through a woven gap in the basket. Continue this process until the whole woven area is covered in flowers. floral-diy-easter-basket_attach-flowers
  3. When you are finished with the woven area, it is time to cover the unwoven handle. For this part, fully remove the flower from the stem. Add a dab of glue to the handle and place the flower, holding down for 2-3 seconds to secure. Continue with this process until you are satisfied with the look.floral-diy-easter-basket_glue-handle
